Cameron highlights Wake's class

Jupiter (Fla.) dual-threat quarterback Tyler Cameron graduated from high school in December, and enrolled earlier this month at Wake Forest.

Rivals.com rates the 6-foot-3, 210-pound Cameron as a three-star recruit, the No. 10 dual-threat quarterback and the No. 51 overall prospect in Florida.

He switched his commitment from South Florida to Wake Forest Dec. 3, and enrolled earlier this month. Cameron is eligible to participate in Spring Practice with the Demon Deacons.

"When I was up there [Wake Forest] I got a real college atmosphere and a college vibe," Cameron said to Deacons Illustrated in a prior interview. "I went to the game and it's just totally a different feel than [South Florida]. USF is a great program and it's a great place, but I was in love with Wake Forest when I was up there. I was blown away by it."

Fellow Wake signee Dominique Gibson along with Ray McCartney and Tom Elrod played a key role in Cameron's switch to Wake Forest.

"They're [McCartney and Elrod] good guys," Cameron said. "They don't just care about football. They care about other things, like what's going on with my life."
Cameron completed 86 of his 189 passes for 1,453 yards and 12 touchdowns, and was intercepted six times. He also rushed 102 times for 379 yards and six touchdowns.
