Norfolk (Va.) Maury quarterback Cameron Chancellor recently took in the Nike Camp at Virginia Tech as well as combines at Lake Taylor and the Elite College Combine. What schools lead for the signal-caller at this point?
"I'm trying to get a 4.5-second 40-yard dash, I have to improve on my stock in the 40, I've been working on that," he said. "I'd also like to get 16 to 18 benches and I got to get my vertical up."
The visit to Blacksburg was the first time he had been at Virginia Tech.
"I liked the school, but it was kind of dead there, it doesn't have that much activity in Blacksburg," he said. "I guess the school is better when they are in session, but it wasn't that vibrant. The day before I met up with the coach Stinespring and he showed us around the Hall of Fame and Michael Vick Hall. He hit it off real fast with us."
Chancellor currently favors Virginia and Penn State. Is there any reason these two schools still stand out over the others?
"I haven't talked to a lot of other coaches," he said. "I visited both of those schools and I have seen them more, so that's why I'm more interested in them."
This summer Chancellor plans to attend camps at Maryland, West Virginia and Penn State. In preparation for next season, Chancellor is training hard.
"I'm lifting weights, running the 40, doing speed burst drills, everything," he said. "I'm really working on the 40 a lot more because I wasn't satisfied with that. I think I've improved a lot and I'm ready for next season, you're going to see more running from me. I just want to show everybody I have a ground and air attack; I don't want to just be known as a pocket passer."
Chancellor was named offensive player of the year at Maury and all-district as he ran for 250 yards and threw for 1,000 yards and 12 touchdowns.
