DeJean Getting Early Interest

St. Thomas More High product Cameron DeJean is poised to have a busy summer. The "6-3', 190-pound junior is hearing from some very good football programs this spring and will have to sit down soon to schedule out the football camps he plans to attend this summer.

Cameron DeJean was amongst a number of high school football prospects that recently attended the Cajun Junior Day during the spring game on April 4th. Cameron is very familiar with the Cajun football program; his father is former Ragin'Cajun great Fred DeJean that played for USL in the early 80's.

"My dad played for USL back in the early 80's," Cameron stated. "He still knows a lot people at the university and get to some games every year. There is no pressure from my father to play football at UL; it's going to be my decision."

Having a father that has played college football and understands the recruiting process is a huge advantage Cameron DeJean.

"Yes, having my dad involved in the recruiting process is a huge advantage for me," said DeJean. "His knowledge of recruiting and college football will help me plan out my summer and make the right decisions for my future."

Growing up in the area and attending Cajun football games has allowed Cameron to see some of the improvements that have taken place over the past few years.

"It was great to play to in the indoor practice facility last summer for the 7-on-7 camp," said Cameron. "We also worked out on the football field on the new turf and they talked to us about the expansion plans for the football stadium. You can see that improvements are taking place in their program and they are moving forward in the Sun Belt."

Cameron is not sure what position the Cajuns are recruiting him at, he is capable of playing both positions at safety and possibly weak side linebacker at the next level.

"They haven't really discussed a position with me yet," DeJean stated. "I played a lot at free safety last season with Cooper Gerami playing the strong safety position. This year I'm going to play more at strong safety now that Cooper is gone."

Cameron DeJean will be traveling to College Station this weekend for the Aggie spring game.

"Texas A&M invited me to their spring game this weekend," Cameron said. "Coach Sherman has made a lot of changes in the program and I'm excited about traveling up there and taking a look around at the facilities."

DeJean recently took the ACT and scored a 23 on his first test. Cameron has maintained a 2.7 GPA over the school year, but has at a 3.0 GPA this semester.
