Cameron Lynch Hopes to Hear from the Jackets

Brookwood High School linebacker Cameron has been busy recently attending the Showcase and traveling to Athens for their Junior Day.

Brookwood High School linebacker Cameron Lynch participated in the Showcase a couple weekends ago. It was a busy weekend for him, because he also made his first Junior Day visit to Georgia. Lynch said he really enjoyed the visit. "It was good. The food was great, everything was good," he said. "The coaches were nice and I like the atmosphere there."

When asked if he had any other plans for more visits coming up, this is what Cameron had to say:

"Hopefully Georgia Tech invites me to Junior Day. I was hoping they'd invite me [to the last one], but they didn't so I hope they will."

Lynch has yet to receive a scholarship offer, but he is hearing from a few schools including Georgia, Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Clemson, Stanford and Ohio. As of right now, he doesn't have any other visits or Junior Days planned. However he will be looking at schools for sure in the near future and he has a few things on his mind that stand out when looking for the right school.

"Academics first, you have to get a good education. Then a winning program with good coaches and consistency is important. Location isn't really important, distance doesn't matter. Stanford came in to the school a few days ago. I'm from California so distance wouldn't really be a problem."

The 5'11" 215 pound prospect still, however, mentions the two in-state schools before any others. With both schools hiring new defensive coordinators, Lynch sees the new respective 3-4 schemes of both programs as a positive.

"It's attractive. It is, because I like to cover and stuff like that. People compare me to the next Rennie Curran (Brookwood alum) or whatever, so that'd be cool if I get out there on the outside and do some covering and use my speed. That'd be really cool."

Lynch noted that he led all of Gwinnett County in tackles last season with 135. He also had four and a half sacks and an interception. He had a great time in Athens for his visit with Georgia, but he is also anxiously waiting to hear about an invite to go visit Georgia Tech. Top Stories
