Allan Chaney collapses during workout

Virginia Tech forward Allan Chaney collapsed during a workout Thursday and spent the night in the hospital. Preliminary tests on Chaney did not reveal anything seriously wrong but further examination is needed.

Chaney, who sat out last season after transferring from Florida but has received praise from teammates about what he could bring to the Hokies next season, was working out on the Blacksburg campus when he passed out. He has returned from the hospital and has been cleared to return to classes.

"We hope he’s going to be okay," Virginia Tech Coach Seth Greenberg said in a telephone interview.

Chaney, who is 6 feet 9 and 235 pounds, is expected to add a physical, talented post presence to Virginia Tech next season. Teammates have noted his tremendous athleticism, praising his ability to play tough on the blocks as well as to shoot the ball. Some have called him a new incarnation of a player already in a Virginia Tech uniform, Jeff Allen, who has similar attributes.

Greenberg was on a recruiting trip when Chaney collapsed, and he returned to Virginia Tech. Greenberg praised the training staff for its attentive response. As for Chaney's status, Greenberg said on Thursday that he was unsure.

"All his tests are negative," Greenberg said, "but we’ve still got a lot more tests."
