N.Y. DE Talks PSU

Due to a transfer rule in New York, Ronnie Cameron was not able to play football his junior year, but the Holy Trinity Diocesan defensive end is planning on using his senior year to make a big splash in recruiting.

"I missed last year because I transferred from a public to a private school," Cameron said. "It was a really tough decision, but it was what was best for my future academically and in football."

"Because, I missed last year I understand my lack of offers right now. A coach isn't going to offer a scholarship no matter how well you do at camp if you haven't proven yourself on the field, so I've been spending all my time with my new teammates and getting in the best shape of my life for this season."

While the 6-foot-3, 240-pound defensive end doesn't hold any offers at this point, he is receiving steady interest from some of the nation's top programs and was able to camp at Boston College and Temple this summer.

"I made it to Temple for a one-day camp and was really surprised by how many participants were there. I played very well at the camp and think I impressed the coaches. Temple is a program on the rise and has a great academic reputation. My sister is a student there."

"Boston College is my favorite with Penn State right now. It's a school where academic excellence is a must and the campus is extremely nice. It's just a program that I'd be very proud to be a part of."

The Hicksville, N.Y. native has also been hearing from Notre Dame, Michigan, Virginia and Purdue. "Coach (Steve) Szabo from Michigan and Coach (Peter) Vaas from Notre Dame are going to come see me this season along with coaches from Boston College and Temple."

Cameron reports a 1720/2400 SAT, 3.9 GPA and plans to major in finance at his school of choice. He is being recruited as a defensive end, defensive tackle and outside linebacker.
