Caring is Creepy 2012: Have A Seat, Cameron Wilson


After a fairly lengthy drought in the creepstakes, the Iowa football program is back on the board, landing their second verbal commitment of the 2012 recruiting class, Ohio WR Cameron Wilson.  Wilson is a consensus 3* recruit and both Rivals and 247Sports put him on the cusp of being a 4*.  On ratings alone, he's Iowa's most talented receiver prospect since Keenan Davis signed on three years ago.  And he should get bonus points for having a mildly disconcerting name, what with having two first names and two last names.

Wilson has solid size (the video above says 6'0", 185 lbs, but Rivals and Scout both say he's 6'2", 195 lbs, so for now we'll go with that) and a fake 40 time of 4.49; he doesn't look like a burner in that video, but he does look pretty elusive.  He also does a nice job of using his blockers and fighting for extra yards.  He had an exceptionally productive junior year (77 catches, 1075 yards, 8 TD), which earned him all-state honors and plenty of attention: Wilson didn't have offers from any blue-blood programs (including the big dog down the street, Ohio State), but he had an armful of offers from solid-to-good programs, including West Virginia, Pitt, South Florida, Illinois, Cincinnati, and OMHR.  Receiver figures to be a fairly big need position for Iowa again this year and Wilson looks like both a nice fit with last year's receiver recruits (Marcus Grant and Jacob Hillyer) and a good start for this year's crop of receivers.
