Football Recruiting: Running Back Cameron Singletary Stands Out

2014 running back Cameron Singletary continues to prove that despite his size he can make a big impact on the gridiron. Although he is only 5’7” he had learned to use this to his advantage. Weighing in at 180 pounds he is a hassle to tackle using his ability to make explosive cuts late in the play with his impressive vision. It is fitting that Cameron is from Jacksonville, as his play resembles Maurice Jones-Drew. As Cameron puts it, “I’m shorter so behind the line of scrimmage I’m hard to see until I’m basically in your face already.”

Cameron is working hard on and off the field to improve his explosive tackle breaking and this should strike fear into defenses across Florida. Division 1A teams may be unsure about Cameron because of his size but they have found him impossible to ignore as he continues to prove doubters wrong. Cameron has attended Duke, NC State, and UNC camps and his radar continues to grow.

Teams are still looking for an impressive junior year before they offer but he has garnered interest from Florida Atlantic, Boston College, Duke, NC State, UNC and some others. FAU will be in attendance at some of his games this year because they are full on interest. How could you not be interested in a back as versatile as Cameron?

Cameron has been in contact with BC Tight Ends coach Sean Devine and has enjoyed talks, saying that Coach Sean Devine is a “great guy”. BC is his “number one right now but it’s early and I’d have to talk about it with my family and if they felt the same way I did I would. They have small backs just like me, their starter is only 5’7”, last year they had two running backs from Jacksonville , they have to have a great atmosphere with Bobby Wolford going there and being so happy to be there.”

Cameron has many other teammate

s who are gaining attention and he says that he can see himself playing with them at the next level but at the end of the day “we all would have to go where we feel we fit best.” Academics are extremely important to Cameron and they will be a key part in his college decision but location will not be a factor.

Look for a big junior year out of Cameron as he proves to colleges that he has what it takes to play at the next level. Teams are going to want to be offering him soon before they get lost in pile.
