He's suiting up for the South in Saturday's SCADA North-South All Football Game at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium at Myrtle Beach High School.
"I'm looking forward to hitting. A lot of hitting," Chaney said.
Practice for the game started on Monday and has continued with two-a-days throughout the week.
"The first practice was very intense. We've slowed it down since then," Chaney said. "It's good though. I really like it here. It's a great experience."
On the South team, he's playing safety. It's a change of pace from playing in the box as a nickel back at Battery Creek, where he registered 64 tackles as a senior this season. Chaney said nickel back is where he's probably going to play in Tigertown.
"They went to the ACC Championship. That's all that matters to me," he said. "Even though they lost (to Georgia Tech), they still did well." (Hale McGranahan)
Defensive tackle coach Dan Brooks has been in constant touch with Chaney since then, even though he's also been talking a lot with graduate assistant Daric Riley.
Chaney is likely a candidate to red-shirt during his first year on campus. Not playing early is OK with him.
"I take it as a learning process. I want it to be special up there," he said.
Happy to be joining a Clemson team that played in its first-ever ACC Championship game, Chaney heard a lot of trash talk the week after the loss to South Carolina.
"They went to the ACC Championship. That's all that matters to me," he said. "Even though they lost (to Georgia Tech), they still did well."
North Carolina continues to send information to Chaney's coaches at Battery Creek, but he's not wavering from his decision.
"But I'm all Clemson," he said.
Chaney is a three star prospect and rated as the No. 63 outside linebacker in the class of 2010, according to Scout.com.
