Late May thru June has been busy for Scotland (Laurinburg, NC) quarterback Cameron Sexton. So far, he has traveled to summer camps at the University of Texas, Clemson, NC State, and plans to go to Florida State next month. He says his first three camp experiences have been positive ones, leaving him with a good impression of all three programs.
“I’ve been to Texas, a couple of days ago I went to Clemson, and this week I went to NC State for a one day camp,” Sexton said. “I’m going to Florida State from July 10th to the 12th, and that’s going to be my last camp.
“Texas was a good experience. I had a chance to talk to Coach Mack Brown and Greg Davis, the Quarterbacks Coach [and Offensive Coordinator]. Major Applewhite showed me around the campus and it was good to talk to a former quarterback. I could ask him some things I couldn’t ask the coaches.
“Clemson went well. I like Coach [Mike] O’Cain. I like the offense. We actually got our offense from their scheme, so actually a lot of the terminology is the same.
“NC State was good. It’s close to home and a program that’s going in the right direction. They obviously had Philip Rivers, so they know how to coach great quarterbacks.”
The camps have not only helped Sexton get a feel for these programs, they have helped his playing ability as well.
“It’s definitely helped,” Sexton said of his camp experiences. “I get to see what the coaches are looking at. At Texas I threw with the #1 quarterback in Texas. It’s good to see what’s out there. Now I’m ready to get this summer stuff overwith and focus on playing football.”
As a junior, Sexton threw for close to 1,900 yards with 16 touchdown passes to only six interceptions. He completed close to 60 percent of his passes. A phenomenal athlete with a rocket arm, the 6-2, 180 pound signal-caller has earned eight scholarship offers. Though he could likely play other skill positions with his 4.42 speed in the 40 (timed during last summer’s Shrine Bowl combine) and athleticism, quarterback is where all of the schools involved are recruiting him to play.
“I have eight scholarship offers – Virginia Tech, Florida State, Clemson, Wake Forest, Duke, ECU, Syracuse, and UTEP,” Sexton said. “West Virginia, NC State, Miami, and Texas are interested. Everybody’s recruiting me to play quarterback. No one has questioned that.”
Sexton named a top five among his list of suitors.
“My top five are Virginia Tech, Texas, NC State, Clemson, and Florida State,” Sexton said.
