N.Y. Sleeper Out to Open Some Eyes

Most of the recruits in attendance for Penn State's latest Junior Day estimated that approximately 40-45 prospects visited Happy Valley. One of the more intriguing guests was Ronnie Cameron. What is so interesting about this particular athlete? Read on to find out for yourself.

Ronnie Cameron missed his junior season at Holy Trinity High in Hicksville, N.Y., due to an injury. Needless to say, the combines and camps will be very important for the 6-foot-3, 240-pound defensive end.

“I got to talk to Coach [Brian] Norwood, he was telling me how they're replacing some guys,” Cameron said. “He wants to see me at the combines and I plan on camping there in June.”

Cameron was very enthusiastic about his visit to University Park.

“The trip was real good,” he said. “I really liked the campus and the facilities. There were like 45 guys there and they treated us really well. I also got the chance to meet Joe Paterno. There were a few guys there I got to know a little bit like Duval Kamara, Marvin Austin and Josh Marks.”

The New York prospect was impressed by a few current Nittany Lion players and a few signee's.

Derrick Williams and Paul Poslusnny were there answering any questions we had,” Cameron explained. “Phillip Taylor and A.J. Wallace were also there watching practice.”
