Sleeper Ohio WR Sets Hawkeye Visit

In the Big Ten, everyone wants to get a physical edge. That is the theme of the Hawks' wide receiver recruiting the past two seasons. The Hawks are still trying to create a mismatch in coverage as they are looking at a 6'6 205 WR from Ohio. The Hawks have offered a scholarship to this former Iowan and are on the verge of receiving an official visit. Get the latest on this sleeper prospect right here at HTO.com!

There are many reasons why the Hawks have offered WR Cameron Bobb. Let's start by saying that he is 6'6" and can motor. Debuting at the new Ashtabula Lakeside High School, which combined Ashtabula Harbor and Ashtabula High, Cameron has made a big splash in being the school's first division one prospect.

"Cameron is a big-time talent we have not always had here," Coach Jay Corlew said. "Cameron is definitely a big target at 6'6 205, and he is very athletic for his size. Many coaches have stated that he has to be one of the fastest guys for his size. In fact, we are continually looking for more ways to get him the ball every game."

Cameron has received offers from Iowa, Wake Forest, Minnesota, West Virginia, Cincinnati, and several MAC schools. He also is receiving interest from Pittsburgh, Ohio State, Purdue, and Boston College. Cameron only has one visit set to this point.

"I'll be visiting Iowa City on November 22nd thru 24th," Cameron Bobb stated to HTO.com after we first heard of a potential visit from Coach Corlew. "I lived in Des Moines until I was eight years old, but I do not know much about Iowa City. I do know the coaches are real good and treat people very well. In fact, I like everything about Iowa."

At 6'6 205, many will bring up the potential question of a move to tight end. However, that is not the case for Cameron Bobb from what I have gathered from a few recruiting sources.

"I do not believe I have a disadvantage with my size at all. I have been timed at 4.49 in the forty yard dash and I have good running techinique from participating in track. Also, my position coach is a former WR from Northern Illinois, Shawn Allgood."

"Cameron makes great strides in his routes," Coach Corlew added. "He knows there are areas he will need to work on, but he has the potential to be a very effective wide reciever. His best playing days are in front of him."

One area of work for Cameron will be with the ACT. Cameron carries a 3.0 GPA, but is still looking for the qualifying test score. However, his maturity is noted by his associates because he carries two jobs and still plays football. Officials expect Cameron to be fully qualified.

Much like Champ Davis, the Hawks will be working hard on getting a former native back to the Hawkeye state. Many Hawk fans would have to get excited over the possibility of 6'4 190 Clint Solomon and 6'6 205 Cameron Bobb lining up together.
