Fleming finds what he is looking for

While we love bringing you a good portion of high school news and updates, we also want to feature some of the state's top athletes, while getting a quick look at what's the latest on the college recruiting front. Today, we got word on new developments from Cy Creek offensive lineman Cameron Fleming. This is a TPI Premium article.

After making the pledge earlier this year to TCU, Cy Creek offensive lineman Cameron Fleming was solid, but open-minded as far as keeping his options open.

And when an opportunity presented itself to become part of the Stanford football team, Fleming was all ears.

"One of the things we were waiting on was to see if Cameron would be admitted to the school. The coaches called and said he was in," Kem Fleming, Cameron's father said. "So we called coach (Gary) Patterson and decommitted from TCU and called coach Jim Harbaugh and committed to Stanford."

Cameron, who stands 6-foot-6, weighing 285 pounds, and Kem said this decision did not come easy and involved the entire family. 

"This was a decision made as a family. It was just an opportunity we felt we couldn't pass up," Kem said. "If it came down to TCU and Stanford and he was not playing football, it would be Stanford without blinking an eye. This was the best situation for football and life success."

Fleming and the Cy Creek football team are sitting in a good position in district play with a 5-1 (2-1) record. On the season, Fleming has 25 pancake blocks and has an average line grade of 92.
