Polk checks out practice

Three-star Hamilton Southeastern (Ind.) wide receiver Cameron Polk visited Northwestern spring practice last Thursday. In this Purple Wildcats insider update, he dishes on where the Wildcats rank, and the next steps in his suddenly busy recruitment.

Cameron Polk visited for Northwestern practice last Thursday. The three-star Hamilton Southeastern (Ind.) wide receiver noticed the contagious energy.

"The coaching staff was excited and pumped up," Polk said via text. "The players were flying around making plays and the environment was great. Couldn't have been much better."

Polk has become one of the most intriguing targets for NU's 2014 recruiting class. Anna Hickey of FOX Sports NEXT said in a recent feature that Polk can kick a 55-yard field goal and run the 40 in under 4.45 seconds. Though he's relatively new to the game, several schools have expressed interest.

He spoke with wide receivers coach Dennis Springer, who said Polk is the type of player the team looks for. Still, he's looking for a little bit more.

"He wants to evaluate me further at one of their day camps in June," Polk said.

Where do the Wildcats rank in his recruitment?

"In my top three so far," he said.

Polk looks like a player for NU recruiting fanatics to watch. With his raw skillset and lofty potential, he could be the right fit for this offense.
