Nike camp profile - Cameron Filkins

Cameron Filkins is a 6-4, 297-pound lineman from Los Alamitos, California, and Cameron was at the SoCal Nike camp competing against the best Southern California has to offer in the way of prep football talent. Los Al is a top program down south and there's no question Filkins will be a visible player on that team. How did he enjoy his day at USC?

"It was good," he told "We went from normal benching and other things to warming up. I got the most fun out of that. My 40 time is a little slower than I put down on record, but I'm pretty happy with how I did today. I wanted to come to learn things, mainly technique, especially for running."

Filkins plays both ways for Los Al, but prefers to do the hitting as opposed to being hit. "I enjoy defense," he said. "I've been told that my body is more built for offense, but I like defense."

On the recruiting front, Cameron is start starting that process. He doesn't have any offers and is still very much open. He did, however, mention 5 schools that have been regularly sending him mail. "Utah, Washington and places like that," Filkins said. "If I had to take trips now, I would go to Utah, Wisconsin, Washington, Washington State and Colorado."
