Demps Enjoys Visit To Winston-Salem

DULUTH, GA - One prospect who increased his stock dramatically at the CES/Kennedy Combine in Duluth, Georgia this past week was Cameron Demps, a 5'9 ½, 165-pound speedster from Peachtree Ridge High School in Suwanee, Georgia.

At the combine, Cameron Demps ran the second fastest 40-time, a 4.35 second forty and impressed onlookers with his other drills as well. His shuttle time of 4.16 and 7.09 second 3-cone drill were also amongst the best of the day at the combine in Duluth, Georgia, an event that hosted most of the top players in the state of Georgia.

This performance, coupled with his impressive junior season, will help Demps in his quest to pick up scholarship offers from his favorites. "This past season I ended up with 7 interceptions, 2nd in the county," Demps noted. "My team went 11-2 and made it to the semifinals. We had a good season with a good group of players and teammates. We just worked hard to get there."

Demps knows he has to work hard this offseason to prepare himself for his senior season as well as college, however. "I thought I did well, but I can do better," said the defensive back prospect who could also play at wide receiver at the collegiate level. "This year, I'm going to do better than last year. I'm working on my speed, coverage, and trying to get my weight up."

While Demps continues to work to improve his game, schools are picking up their interest in the Peachtree Ridge athlete. Florida, Wake Forest, Mississippi, Boston College, and Georgia Tech are among the teams recruiting Demps to date. This past weekend, Demps visited Wake Forest and saw what the Demon Deacons had to offer.

"It was good, a good environment," he noted. "The coaches are nice. They have a strong education and I really liked the campus. We toured the weightroom, they showed us the equipment and highlight film and everything with education. It was a real nice visit."

Demps has also visited Florida and has plans to make return visit to both schools this summer. "For camps, I'm going to Florida in March, then Mississippi and then Wake Forest," he noted.
