FinestPreps has promised to deliver top-notch coverage of the high school football recruiting scene all across America!
It doesn’t matter what state you’re in–if you’re a big time baller and you can play–we want to profile you on FinestPreps.com!
Today our very own Mike Curtis checks in with another report on a gifted class of 2012 prospect!
Who’s he taking a look at?
Check out his report below!
The state of Ohio is oozing with top notch Division I-A talent.
The next big-time prospect out of the Buckeye state that we are going to profile is Dublin Jerome (Columbus, Ohio) wide receiver Cameron Wilson.
The 6’2″, 195 pound receiver’s offer list reads like a who’s who of BCS conferences (ACC, Big East, Big 10 and SEC) and when you turn on his highlight video it is easy to see why he is so highly coveted.
A skilled, versatile wideout, Wilson runs crisp, polished routes, and uses a bevy of moves to get open.
Cameron has great hands as well, he looks very natural extending to make catches with his hands.
He displays great technique, which is rare to see from a high school junior.
Wilson is dynamic with the ball in his hands.
He runs like a running back and combines his toughness with ankle breaking moves.
Extremely difficult to tackle in the open field–Wilson will rack up the YAC(yards after catch) by the bundle.
The bubble screen is tailor made for Wilson–get him the ball in space and let his athletic ability do the rest.
Jet sweeps and reverses will also give Wilson the opportunities to make big plays on the ground.
Wilson could easily play some running back at the collegiate level.
He sets up his blocks very well, has tremendous quickness and does a great job of breaking tackles.
However, his future is likely at receiver because he is simply that good.
Cameron does a great job of locating the ball and catching it at its peak.
He will also fight for the ball, making sure he is the one who comes down with it.
Excellent body control and leaping ability allows him to make the difficult catch look routine and makes him dominant on fade patterns.
He’s not a blazer so Wilson would benefit from a year in the weight room in order to gain explosiveness and to fill out his frame.
A three-star prospect according to Scout.com, Wilson also can return kicks.
He may not have the speed to pull away from defenders, but he definitely has the playmaking ability to rip off some big gains.
Production isn’t an issue for Cameron either. In the past two seasons alone, he’s accumulated 128 grabs, over 1,700 yards, and 12 trips to the endzone.
Wilson is one to keep your eye on in the class of 2012.
With the type of talent he has, whoever gets a commitment from this rising star will be grinning from ear to ear.
