SC ATH Drawing Early Interest

This junior upstate wide receiver/linebacker is already hearing from some of the nation's top programs. Which teams are showing early interest in this member of Scout.com's Top 30 juniors in South Carolina? Read on to find out!

Junior Cameron Ford, a 6-4, 215 pound prospect, played all over the field for T.L. Hanna High School last season.

"I played receiver, running back, quarterback, linebacker, free safety, corner and even some punter last year. But I will probably play receiver in college," Ford told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

The talented athlete is hearing from several major programs as a junior, but he is still waiting on his first scholarship offer. "Right now I am getting letters from Michigan, Ohio State and Notre Dame. Duke has come to talk with me at school," Ford said.

"I went to Ohio State last summer. I was a quarterback up there and I got the award for being the most outstanding junior quarterback."

When asked if he has any early favorites in the recruiting process, Ford responded, "I like the Big Ten schools and of course Clemson and South Carolina, Clemson mainly. I went to a few of the games last year with my friends."

What are the strengths of the T.L. Hanna standout? "I just go full speed all the time," he responded. "As a receiver I can get open and catch the ball. As a linebacker I can run you down.

"I want to work on my speed next year. I am also going to work on my strength."

What will Ford consider when selecting a college? "Just at how good they are. I will also look at the coaching staff. I also want to play in a wide open offense," he said. A return trip to Ohio State has already been planned for this summer. "Yeah I will be going back to Ohio State. I would also like to camp at Notre Dame this summer."
