USF '12 class adds highly rated Jupiter QB
Tyler Cameron of Jupiter, thought by some to be the top quarterback in the state for 2012, committed to USF on Tuesday, choosing the Bulls over LSU, Purdue and Illinois.
"It's a program on the rise, and I feel like I can do a lot of big things there," said Cameron, 6 feet 3, 215 pounds.
Cameron, who will join the Bulls in January as an early enrollee, is a key addition to a recruiting class already ranked as high as No. 20 nationally by Rivals.com. That site rates him as a four-star recruit, USF's third (joining tight end Sean Price and receiver LaMarlin Wiggins).
Cameron is rated as the No. 6 dual-threat quarterback in the country by Rivals, and he's the state's No. 18 overall prospect according to the Orlando Sentinel. It's the second year in a row the Bulls will have an early-enrollee quarterback. Milton's Matt Floyd joined the team in January.
