"Tomorrow, I'm signing with Tech," Kam Chancellor
said Tuesday night. "We've got a little ceremony at the school. 9:00."
Tuesday night, Chancellor also spoke with his recruiting coach, Bryan Stinespring. "He just told me a few minutes ago that I'm about to be a Hokie and to be happy about it. He told me to be proud that it's going to be official."
For Chancellor, his choice of Virginia Tech came down to several things including the staff's loyalty to him throughout the process. "I chose them because they've been on me harder than other schools," he noted. "When other schools stopped talking to me and came back later, they were always there. Then the 757, they do it big at Tech."
This past season, Chancellor had a big season as a quarterback for Maury. "This season, I ran for over 500 yards and threw for like 2200 or 2300. "We went 9-2 and went to the first round of the playoffs."
While the 6'4, 215-pound prospect has the versatility to play a variety of positions, it's the quarterback spot that Chancellor loves. "It's about having it under control. I'm a leader on the field. It's exciting to be out there with the ball in my hands."
Once he signs on Wednesday, Hokie fans should expect to see Chancellor on the Tech roster next year as he notes that his academic situation is under control. "I just have to maintain As and Bs which I'm doing right now," he said. "Then I'm going into summer school at Tech to prepare for next year."
A versatile athlete out of Maury High School in Norfolk, Kam Chancellor will be Blacksburg bound after signing with the Hokies on Wednesday.
