Do you have a better image? The agent cannot tell anything from the photo. :(

No, unfortunately I don't have a better picture. I can say that the entire spider including the legs were all black, sleek and shiny looking (not fuzzy). The abdomen was perfectly round like a small black marble. The only marking was on the back was tan/white and in no particular shape - other than round(ish). The white line on the back is from the camera. Does that help at all? Thank you for your assistance!

I am not able to find anyone to help positively identify this spider.
My apologies.

It appears to be a trapdoor spider: https://www.southcarolinapublicradio.org/post/southern-trap-door-spiders

I agree it looks like a trapdoor spider. Great find and suggestion Kristena. Thank you very much everyone!
