Albright Favoring Three

Kennesaw (GA) North Cobb safety Cameron Albright has three schools that he has a strong interest in, but the three-star athlete keeps receiving more offers that intrigue him, including one from Wisconsin.

With the spring evaluation in full bloom, Kennesaw (GA) North Cobb safety Cameron Albright's offer list continues to grow with more great opportunities in the southeast part of the United States.

And while that's the part of the country he has a desire to play college football, the recent offer from the University of Wisconsin has made the 6-2, 207-pound safety keep his options open as he goes through the process.

"Wisconsin offering me down here means a lot, especially since they've won the last three Big Ten championships," Albright told Badger Nation. "I don't know a ton about them, but I would love to play in the Big Ten."

Talking with Wisconsin for the past month, Albright has developed a pretty sound relationship with running back coach Thomas Hammock, who is now the lead recruiter in the state of Georgia.

"I've been talking to Coach Hammock for about a month," said Albright. "He came down to the school and I got a chance to see him. It was the first time he was able to come down to the school, but we've developed a good relationship. We joke around a lot."

In addition to getting an offer from Wisconsin Albright received offers from North Carolina State and Texas Tech on Monday and Georgia Tech on Thursday.

"Being from Georgia, especially where I am from, they are right down the road for me," said Albright of Georgia Tech. "They are close so that my family can come see me. They are a good academic institution. They were actually my leader because I had taken a couple visits to Georgia Tech, but then my recruitment fell off a little bit. They are everything I could ask for in a school."

Of his 14-plus offers, Albright – a three-star safety ranked No.52 in the country by Fox Sports Next - said North Carolina, Wake Forest and Vanderbilt are the offers he is highly considering at this point.

"All of them are good academic schools that will give me a good secure career after football is over," said Albright. "They will also give me the ability to come in and earn a starting spot. I'd get good playing time early on and all four years."

Although having a preference to play in the south, Albright said he planned on talking to his parents to see if a visit to Madison is possible.

"I would like to play in the south but I am not going to eliminate a school if they aren't in the south," said Albright. "I want to experience every school I can to find out what school is the best all-around fit for me academically and athletic wise. I want to compete for conference championships and in the BCS playoffs."

Albright played both ways his junior year to utilizing his versatility, but said most schools are recruiting him as a safety.

"Coaches like that I had receiver skills that I was able to catch and match up with the defense and make a play," Albright said. "They also liked the fact that I was able to come down and make tackles."

After spring practices are finished, Albright is going to start planning visits to the schools that have offered me and are still actively recruiting him.
