Offensive lineman Cameron Mayo has toured a host of southern campuses this summer. He has performed very well on the camp circuit and impressed many coaches during the process. Cameron currently sits with 8 offers, and he's hoping for a few more.
"Auburn, Clemson, Duke, South Carolina, Ole Miss, Middle
Tennessee, Cinicinatti, Louisville, East Carolina, and UT-Chattanooga have
extended me a scholarship. Right now, my final six are Ole Miss, Auburn,
Florida, Clemson, South Carolina, and Tennessee."
His latest camp was just last weekend, and landed him on the
plains of Auburn, Alabama.
"I did pretty well. I got an offer from Auburn last
Mayo is pretty wide open right now, but he has a few things on
his mind that will factor into his final decision. His hometown of Dalton, is
known as the "Carpet capital of the World." However, it's not a
buzzing metropolis or a large place by any stretch of the imagination. Mayo
looking for something similar in his college choice.
"I like a small campus. Clemson really stands out to me
because of that. I liked the town and the school a lot. I also don't want to be
really far from home either."
The North Georgia prospect's high school team lost almost 30
seniors off of their 2002 squad. That has caused a serious shakeup in the
Catamount's starting lineup, and double duty for Cameron Mayo.
"I'm going to play defensive end and offensive tackle
this season. That's fine because Clemson, and South Carolina like me at both
positions. The others like me at Center or Guard. I'll play anywhere though, it
doesn't matter to me."
The standout prospect told us that he's now 6'4 265lb's with a
280lb bench, and 400lb squat. While he's working extremely hard now, Mayo
understands that he may need an extra year to keep growing.
"I want to redshirt. I need to add more weight, and just
get better at everything I do."
The Dalton Catamounts may be rebuilding this year, but Cameron
Mayo will make sure his position is not a question mark whatsoever. He will be
an interesting player to watch this fall.
