Cameron Talks Recruiting

Tyler Cameron is Jupiter's quick-footed signal caller. He's going to be a top quarterback prospect in the state of Florida for 2012. Cameron has a strong arm and good speed, making him an elusive dual threat player. Cameron finished the season with 821 yards and seven touchdowns through the air in a limited offense, and added another six touchdowns and 478 yards on the ground.

"I think I did great this season, it ended a little short but it went well. We started off on a roll, and I think next year we'll continue that momentum," Cameron stated. "I had three or four games where I threw for 200 yards and ran for around 150 yards. I also had a few game winning drives then too. We didn't have a running back so I had to do most of the rushing."

He's focused on his recruitment now that the season is over, and so far it's been very active for the young prospect.

"I hear from everywhere right now, I get new letters every day. The last day of school I heard from USF and I've heard from Alabama recently as well. Rutgers, Georgia, Florida, all have been in contact with me lately too," he said. "I have offers from USF and Rutgers, but I have seven offers total."

Cameron started taking unofficial visits last fall and made the most of his time there by taking in the atmosphere and getting a feel for each campus.

"I've been on unofficial visits to Miami when they played Florida State, Florida with they played South Carolina, Florida State when they played Florida, and USF when they played Connecticut," Cameron explained. "I don't really have a favorite, there's too much going on right now and its still early. I want to see everything come in and then sort it all out."

Tyler feels committing early in the process will be the best decision for him. That mind set has him focused on each of the schools interested in him so far this season.

"I think I'll commit early and get the process early so I can focus on the season. I want to feel comfortable I have to live there for fours years so that's important. I want to be in the mix early for playing time as well. Distance isn't much of a factor for me because I'll go anywhere," Cameron revealed.

Since he's planning on committing early, Cameron knows that his grades need to be in order. He's been an example for his teammates in the classroom, boasting a 3.15 GPA so far. "I have a 3.15 GPA right now and I'm planning on taking the ACT and SAT soon to get that out of the way," he finished.
