Virginia QB could also be DB

Quarterback and safety Cameron Chancellor out of Norfolk (Va.) Maury is one of the top prospects coming out of the state of Virginia in 2006.
The 6-foot-4, 195-pounder has already received mail from schools including Miami (Fla.), Penn State, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Maryland, Boston College, Duke and East Carolina.
This season Chancellor helped Maury to a 5-5 record as he was named offensive player of the year at Maury and all-district. He went on to post 1,000 yards passing with 12 touchdowns and 250 yards rushing in just five games due to a broken hand.
"He had a really good year. His passing accuracy really improved and he worked real hard on his throwing motions, but he also ran the ball well. He made us very versatile and now a lot more people know how good of a quarterback he is," Maury head coach Delton Cotton said. "He has the possibility of being one of the top quarterbacks in the area and even the state."
As for his injury, it's healed up nicely.
"The broken finger has fully healed," he said. "He's throwing the ball very well now."
Currently, Chancellor favors Virginia, Virginia Tech and Penn State.
What position will he play in college?
"I think he's going to be talented enough to play either quarterback or safety," Cotton said. "He's a good enough athlete to be either one."
This spring Chancellor plans to attend the Virginia Tech Nike Camp.
As for this summer he has plans to attend camps at Virginia Tech, Virginia and Maryland.
