OL Cameron Mayo
6-5, 250, 5.0
Dalton High School
"My favorites are still Clemson, Auburn and Ole Miss," stated Mayo. All 3 favorites have offered the talented prospect as well as South Carolina. Tennessee has not offered but is continuing to show significant interest.
Mayo, who is playing offensive tackle and defensive end during his senior season, is being recruited by Coach West to play offensive line for the Tigers. Dalton High School is off to a good start with a 2-0 record. Mayo has helped with his outstanding play on the offensive line as well as adding 4 sacks on defense.
Distance will be an important factor that Mayo will consider in determining where he will play next season.
"Distance will be a factor," said Mayo. "Clemson and Auburn are both about 2 ½ hours from home. Ole Miss is about 6 hours. I want to go somewhere that has a good team. I will also look at how long the coaches will be there."
Early playing time will also be important to the prize recruit. "That will be pretty important. I will have to take a redshirt year to build up my strength. Then hopefully I will be strong enough to compete for a job."
Mayo has already scheduled his official visit to Clemson for the weekend of January 10. "Coach West called last Wednesday. We just talked about the game they had this week. He asked about our season and how practice was going. We also talked about setting up the official visit."
The 6-3, 260 pound lineman is projected to play guard or center on the collegiate level. "Clemson is looking at me for anywhere on the line but I will probably play guard or center. Auburn is looking at me as center."
The talented offensive lineman is not sure when he will make a commitment. "I'm not sure. Maybe after I take the visit. Maybe before. I will probably take visits to all 3 of my favorites."
Mayo enjoys fishing and had just returned from a successful day of fishing when CUTigers.com caught up with him. We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding offensive lineman from Georgia, right up through signing day 2004.
