Cameron Smith (6-1, 180), from Norcoss (GA) Meadowcreek, is one of the most highly recruited players in the state of Georgia and he just continues to rake in the offers. How many schools have extended him a scholarship so far and who's made his favorites list?

"I like Georgia, UCLA, USC, Virginia and Miami. One of my coaches has told me I have 38 offers but I don't really know which schools just yet. We're getting a new coach so it's kind of in that transition period," Cameron Smith said.

Cameron holds a west coast leader at this time. He said, "UCLA is my leader. I've always wanted to go back to California. I was born there and it's just something about UCLA that I like."

Why did the other four schools make his list?

Georgia: "All my friends are here and that's my hometown. They have a great coach and I know they will make me better."

USC: "It's a winning school so I know it can build me into an athlete and get me to where I want to be. It will make me better and give me a place to progress my skills."

Virginia: "I like the offensive coordinator and the whole offense they run. I talked to their coaches and I could see myself playing there."

Miami: "I always just liked Miami. I know I can get better and it's a place with great academics too."

What is he looking for most in a school? "I'm just looking for a coach that I can trust and a man who's going to lead me to something good and help me get better."

Where will he camp this summer? "I'm thinking about the UCLA, Virginia and Alabama camps but I haven't decided yet."
