Running Back, Class of 2021
Dorman High School, Roebuck, SC
Virginia Tech picked up a verbal commitment from South Carolina running back Chance Black on Wednesday night. Black is the eight commitment of the Hokies’ 2021 recruiting class.
Black plays for Dorman High School in Roebuck, South Carolina. He had 1,067 yards and 11 touchdowns on 166 carries last season while catching 20 passes for 375 yards and five touchdowns. He is considered a versatile player who can line up in multiple spots on offense, though tailback will be his primary position.
Black chose the Hokies over an offer list of South Carolina, East Carolina, Appalachian State and several others. The Virginia Tech coaching staff first saw him at a camp in Blacksburg and offered him shortly thereafter. Black also runs track, finishing fourth in the state of South Carolina in the triple jump.
Black is rated the No. 17 player in the state of South Carolina by 247 Sports, and the No. 15 player in the state by the 247 Composite.
