Local Playmaker Favors UM

At 5-foot-9 and 150 pounds, Miami Edison wide receiver Delvin Chancellor comes from the same mold as former teammate and future Hurricane Terrell Walden. Although he's a bit smallish at this age, Chancellor has big time athletic ability and plenty of speed to burn.

"Delvin's a lot like Terrell in many ways," Edison coach Corey Bell said. "He's a playmaker. He's also a track guy who can really run. Delvin's also got a 38-inch vertical jump."

Chancellor competes in the 4x1 and the long jump events, with a career-best jump of 21 feet.

Despite only playing in 5 or 6 games this past season, Chancellor had just under 500 yards rushing and three touchdowns. At wide receiver, he caught 12 passes for 305 yards and two touchdowns.

"I'm just a playmaker," he said. "I had to wait my turn a lot of times this season, but I should be getting plenty of opportunities next year."

Chancellor, who plans to attend this year's NIKE Training Camp, says he's already got three schools on his short list for college choices.

"I really like UM," he said. "They're in my top three along with Michigan and LSU. I've always liked Michigan. LSU has recruited some of my teammates and they seem like a good program. And UM's UM."

Chanellor is one of three Division 1 prospects for Edison heading into the spring, along with cornerback Rod Howell and defensive lineman Renaud Stephans.
