Rochester Wideout a Polished Product

Though not physically imposing, Rochester receiver Cameron Nabors is one of Michigan's more productive receivers because of his attention to the little details.

A true test of a player is often what opposing coaches and players say about competing against them. When it comes to Cameron Nabors, some of the quotes are, "best hands in the state," and "incredible route runner," which immediately lets you know about his game.

At 5'11, 165-lbs, the Rochester High product doesn't have super size and his 4.6 forty is good, not great, but pop in the tape and his game speed as well as his receiver skills stand out. His route running and hands have him projecting as a great slot receiver at the college level.

I'm hearing from Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan, Northern Michigan, Toledo, Indiana and Malone (NAIA)," he reported, "and Western Michigan, this is my main interest at the moment."

Though the Broncos lead for Nabors, none of those schools have offered, so rather than bind himself to playing just for a MAC or Big Ten school, he is exploring all of his options.

"I am open to playing D2 as well," he said, "I have been contacted by Wayne State. I have visited Ferris State and attended a Grand Valley State Camp two summers ago. I also attended the Midwest Elite Combine and was invited to the Nike Football camp at Penn State, but was unable to attend due to a track and field committment."

Also a state finalist in the long jump, Nabors is a fine athlete who boasts times of 4.15 seconds in the shuttle and 7.0 seconds in the three-cone drill. That quickness allowed him to grab 40 passes as a junior for 729 yards and 4 scores, good enough to earn him All-League and All-County honors. All this after a strong sophomore campaign. Now, he'll spend his summer working hard to try and top those accomplishments during his senior year as well as earning that all important offer.

"With my high school football schedule this summer, it looks like I'll only be able to attend a few camps. Western Michigan for sure and maybe Central or Eastern."

Michigan Varsity will have junior video highlights on Nabors in the coming weeks.
