When Cameron Erving committed many Florida State fans were in shock mainly due to the fact many people had never heard of him. The coaches at FSU were high on Cameron from the start and they took his commitment back in March of 2009.
Since his commitment and senior season other programs offered and attempted to get into the game for Erving but he has remained firm throughout. Now that football is over he's been playing basketball.
"I've been playing basketball now that football is over," said Erving. "We could be doing better. I've been playing basketball throughout high school and I like it a lot. It helps me stay in shape."
While his recruitment has been over for the most part he is glad that the 2010 cycle is nearing a close.
"I am relieved that I don't have to worry anymore about a decision or anything else," said Erving. "I can now focus on getting ready to play."
This weekend will be a chance for Erving and his family to get back in town, meet the new staff, and just enjoy a great time at his future destination.
"Going into the weekend I just want to see more of FSU," said Erving. "I'm rock solid in everything and I already know a lot. My parents are coming, too. They came last year for the spring game. They are really excited."
"This weekend will be a good chance for me to meet all of the new coaches there," continued Erving. "Honestly I would have liked to play for Coach Bowden but this whole thing is new for me. It might be different for the players who've been there but not much for me."
Cameron's relationship with Coach Haggins is one of the main reasons why he's never waivered.
"Had Coach Haggins not stayed I would have opened things back up," said Erving. "We have a great relationship. He's been here to see me and talk to my parents earlier this month. The thing I like about him is that it's never just about football. He gives me a lot of advice and tips."
Cameron says he's stayed up on FSU's recruiting, especially along the defensive line.
"I've been keeping up with the defensive line commitments," said Erving. "I know they got the two tackles coming in. I played against Anthony McCloud when I was in 10th grade. He is real mean and real solid."
Look for an update with Erving after his official this weekend.
