South Carolina is home to a good amount of talent in the Class of 2007 and one of the most versatile prospects in the Palmetto State is favoring NC State.
Cameron Ford, a 6-4, 212-pound prospect from T.L. Hanna High School in Anderson, SC is a teammate of highly-recruited running back Brian Maddox. Like Maddox, NC State and South Carolina appear to be the teams to beat.
"I really liked NC State while I was up there," said Ford, who visited NC State two weekends ago. "I got to see a practice in the morning and then we had a tour of the campus. I loved the facilities, the offices and everything else. It seems like a great school. I'd say they're my favorite now. South Carolina is up there too though."
Ford runs the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds and has the ability to play tight end, wide receiver, safety or even linebacker at the next level.
"Most schools are recruiting me as a receiver or tight end, but I think NC State likes me as either a free safety or linebacker. It doesn't matter one way or the other to me. I'll do whatever I can to help the team win."
Ford has good hands and showed that during a junior season in which he caught 31 passes for 820 yards.
"I don't want people to get the idea that I just like to run routes and catch passes," said Ford. "I love to hit out there. When I'm out there on the field I don't shy away from contact at all. I fly around out there and get myself in a position to make plays."
Ford has verbal offers from NC State, South Carolina, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, North Carolina and Vanderbilt. Recently Tennessee and Georgia have started recruiting him.
