4* JUCO DL Charles Cameron Commits to FAU's Class of 2018
CONGRATS to 4* 6-2, 290 Lbs @CoLinFootball DT Charles Cameron (@primetime199695) out of Morton, MS on his pledge to Coach @Lane_Kiffin & #thefaU Class of 2018! Welcome Charles! #OwlsUP 👌😎👌 pic.twitter.com/S21azMS3Tz— FAU Owl's Nest (@FAU_Owls_Nest) December 13, 2017
Physical lineman who chose the Owls over Louisville, Colorado, Colorado State, San Diego State, UAB, Southern Miss, and many others.
Pledged to FAU via twitter on December 13th just after his graduation, which Coach Kiffin and Trickett both attended.
Registered 48 total tackles, 4 sacks, and a fumble recovery for Copiah-Lincoln this season, which was his second at the JUCO.
Control the trenches and control the game! And with O D becoming so explosive, ya need LOTS of D line depth to rest 'em and keep 'em fresh and effective!
Local Owl saidWelcome to FAU Charles. I'm sure coach Mathias is very happy. Our D looks to have great potential next season. Again , the only area in question is the O line. Would love to see 1 or two JUCO's plus a high schooler for the future. Need the depth.Posted On: Dec 13th 2017, 5:18 PM
We do have 11 or 12 returning OL. I know between another off season of Coach Love and then what Coach Justice teaches we will be good. And I am sure a minimum of 2 or 3 additional quality OL will be here by then as well!
Regardless, this looks to be a stud and a little bit of a pipeline out of Copiah-Lincoln. Now we know why Kiffin has been so quiet - he didn't want people to know where he was.
Still can't get over these 4 star players committing to us. Wanted that forever.
Slightly frustrating thing is that once they go to JUCO, they lose that rating, so even after they commit to us it doesn't show that we're landing these (once) highly sought-after guys. Doesn't matter; we still end up with one of the best classes in CUSA anyway, but it would be nice to get that national attention.
