When ShowMePreps.com last checked in on 2015 quarterback A.J. Cambric it was late 2013 and he was coming off a mildly successful junior season at Liberty High School and preparing for the 2014 Army Combine.
Now that he has that combine under his belt and has finished basketball he's turned his focus toward the spring evaluation period and impressing coaches with a unique combination of size of athleticism. He's been recorded anywhere between 6'2" and 6' 4" inches tall and 212 - 224 pounds. "Right now I'm 6'3" 219 bare footed." He recorded a 28 inch vertical leap at the Army Combine in San Antonio and chose to not do the other tests. Then on Saturday May 10th he turned in an 8' 10" broad jump and a 4.35 3 cone drill. "I'm still training on how to run the 40 but I'm confident in my ability to make a defensive end miss in open space and get a good pass off." It's worth mentioning that he was observed throwing the football through the uprights from the 50 yard line after the FBU Combine on May 10th. He looks to have a 60 - 70 yard arm on any given play.
Cambric spent time at KU, KSU and UNI making either Junior Day or in the case of KU Spring Game visits. While KU got their 2015 commit in Ryan Willis that seems to open a window of opportunity for Cambric at KSU. "I enjoyed my visits to KSU for their game against Baylor and my Junior Day visit. They want me to attend camp this summer. I'll probably camp there."
Due to a precious committment Cambric couldn't make the Spring Game visit to Tulsa but plans to take a heavy look at Tulsa along with Central Arkansas. "Tulsa has a couple offers out. I'll camp there for sure unless something happens with one of those quarterbacks and I'm going to Central Arkansas with Jackson Jenkins then we'll drive to Indiana for a 1 day camp."
Coastal Carolina which has ties to the Liberty area through their current coaching tree has also expressed heavy interest in Cambric. Wake Forest has invited Cambric to camp and he says he plans to see both schools on one trip sometime in June or July.
Cambric updated ShowMePreps.com over "Liberty hour" a break in classes for students to get tutoring, that Northwestern and Illinois State were on campus today. "I threw for Illinois State and Northwestern came by today. I'm excited to learn more about both programs."
Cambric appears to be on the way up with invitations to camps throughout the Midwest and even a couple out of region invites in Wake Forest and Coastal Carolina.
Stay tuned for updates on his recruiting following the final Elite 11 competition in Columbus, Ohio on June 2nd.
