It has been over two months since Iowa landed its first commit for 2012, Mitch Keppy. On Monday, Cameron Wilson became the second. Wilson is a wide receiver from Dublin, Ohio. He is a consensus 3-star recruit (Scout, Rivals, 247Sports).

Wilson in High School

Wilson attends Jerome High School in Ohio. He played receiver and safety for the Celtics, helping them to a 6-4 (5-2) record last year.

  • 2010 - 77 receptions, 1,075 yards, 6 TDs (plus 2 rushing TDs)
  • 2009 - 51 receptions, 628 yards, 6 TDs

With one year still left in his high school career, Wilson already holds or shares all the receiving records at Jerome HS, including: receptions in a game (13), season (77), and career (135); receiving yards in a game (258), season (1079), and career (1974); and receiving touchdowns in a game (3), season (6), and career (15).

Initial Thoughts

Wilson doesn't blow me away with his speed, but he does look elusive enough to get yards after the catch. He also uses his body very well to get in position to catch the ball in tight spaces. In his videos he consistently won jump balls and made catches in traffic. Wilson is a good early addition to this class that needs receivers. There is still a void on the roster after last year's big senior class at receiver.
