Jupiter quarterback Tyler Cameron commits to USF Bulls

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.

    ST. PETERSBURG — It was still a game in the fifth inning when LHP Blake Snell walked the leadoff batter, then allowed a single. One swing by Cubs LF Ian Happ (22 home runs) could put a dent in the Rays' three-run lead.

    Blake Snell allows just two hits in going seven scoreless innings.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The first foray back to the Trop by the best manager the Rays have had obscured the second return visit by arguably the second-best player in franchise history.

    Figures.

    Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Blake Snell (4) takes the field to start the game between the Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017.

    One success story of this lost season is the emergence of LHP Blake Snell as the frontline starter the Rays projected. After a rough start and two demotions, he has been rolling, Wednesday's solid seven innings making him 4-0, 2.57 in his past eight starts.
