2012 Intro: Kamron Summers

STATESVILLE, N.C. --- Inside Carolina profiles junior Kamron Summers, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound cornerback from West Iredell High School.

Scouting Report

"He follows in the lines of the kids we've had over the last five years – he stands out on both sides of the ball," West Iredell head coach Mark Weycker said. "A lot of people when they come in and recruit, they're recruiting him as an athlete. When they get behind closed doors, the offensive and defensive staff fights over who's going to get him. Some people like him on one side of the ball, and other people like him on the other… Kam is along that line where I think he can play major college football on either side of the ball."

Prep Career

Summers burst onto the scene last season with three interceptions in the first four games. He returned all three for touchdowns.

"We thought he was going to have a chance to break the state record for interception returns for touchdowns," Weycker said. "But people just kept throwing away from him."

The single season state record for touchdown interception returns is four (Calvin Humphrey from High Point Central in 1999).

Summers, who played most of the season with a wrist fracture, did add two more interceptions, but failed to return either of them for scores. He also had 60 tackles and nine pass breakups.

"He was our lockdown guy this year," Weycker said.

As a sophomore, Summers primarily played wide receiver catching nine passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns. He also was the nickel back on defense.

Recruitment

Summers is receiving interest from Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, NC State, Syracuse, UCLA, and Wake Forest. He has already made unofficial visits to Duke, UNC, NC State, and Wake Forest.

Through his visits, one school has begun to stand out – NC State.

"I like the football program, the campus, [and] their majors," Summers said. "I want to major in something to do with animals."

Extra Notes

Summers and most of his family are UNC fans… His uncle, D.J. Summers, is the running back coach and recruiting coordinator at Catawba College… Summers runs the 200-meter dash and 4x200 relay, and participates in the long jump and discus in track. His best 200 time is 23.33 seconds.
