Chappell, from Southern Durham High, announced his commitment Tuesday on his Twitter page. He listed two other power-conference offers, Syracuse and Arizona State. Tech's scholarship offer, which he announced Feb. 1, was his first among all Division I schools. On March 8, he tweeted photos from a visit to Tech, when the Yellow Jackets had just begun spring practice.
Tech has not signed a player from North Carolina since its 2015 signing class.
