West Virginia has jumped to the top and defensive backs coach Doug Belk offered 6’1″ 175-lb corner Cameron Smith from Westwood High in Columbia, South Carolina.
He was shocked when he got the phone call getting the WVU offer, saying “They are one of my favorite schools and very honored to have been blessed with the offer. I have really now re-evaluated my list of schools because WVU is now my top school.”
Smith is a good hitter and has decent hands. He has great speed and can finish the tackle. His vision is good and can run north and south along with east and west. Cameron can be in the backfield and stop the runner or the quarter back.
He thinks WVU has a real solid program,and has had a power offense for the past several years. They have also sent plenty of defensive backs to the National Football League.
Cameron molds his game around Deshon Elliot, and when Smith hears WVU, Karl Joseph comes to mind.
For this up coming season Smith wants to get his first pick six, increase his tackles by 30, and his interceptions by two. Cameron thinks the Big XII is the best of the best when it comes down to competition. Smith also wants to work on his breaking speed and power out of his burst on breaks. He loves the 3-3-5, saying, “It shows how much speed and depth they have in the secondary.”
Cameron plans to visit in the spring or the summer and there is no decision date in the works, as of yet.
