There’s still three years of high school and as many football seasons for Northwest Guilford (NC) running back Cameron Cloud. A member of the 2019 class, Cloud is still getting his footing in recruiting circles as well.
Late last summer, Cloud garnered an offer from then-Virginia coach Mike London and the Cavaliers. He already had one from Elon. And while others haven’t bitten yet with an offer, Cloud might not be far away from plenty of others.
Early in the process, though, Cloud hasn’t paid any mind to offers. He’s looking to continue his rise, while becoming more acquainted with schools and future options.
“I’ve gotten into some of it,” Cloud said. “But I just like to enjoy the process, playing football and going to camps and stuff. There’s not anything in particular, but I like all of them.”
This spring, Cloud and his father made one visit, to Clemson. They’ll be back for camp there Wednesday.
“I think it’s a really good school,” Cloud said. “The coaching staff is really helpful in learning routes and drills and stuff. I really do like their style of play.”
Cloud’s other summer plans include camps at Ohio State, Virginia and Virginia Tech. The Hokies have been in the conversation for some time, in part because of Cloud’s family’s friendship with sophomore safety Mook Reynolds and his family. Assistant coach Charley Wiles has also checked in.
“I think they’re also a good school,” Cloud said. “I’m going to their camp this summer and I just wanna meet the new coaching staff and get to know them better.
“I’m not really looking for anything. It’s just going there for the camp and looking to get better.”
Cloud is also looking to improve on a solid freshman season. Heading into his upcoming camp schedule, Cloud also put in plenty of work.
“I think what we’ve done in the weight room has made an impact to where I am now,” he said. “I think I’ve gotten stronger and I’ve gotten better in that category.”
And after the camp swing, there will be plenty more to do. Cloud said he hopes he and Northwest Guilford can improve on an 8-5 campaign from last season.
“I wanna improve on blocking better, getting blocks for my teammates,” he said. “Another thing is physicality and being physical in the game. Just getting stronger in the weight room and getting bigger.”
