Career and Professional Life

At College

He had gotten invitations to study at major universities such as Yale, Harvard, and the University of Southern California (USC).

However, after high school, Cameron decided to play basketball instead of American Football and hence joined Brigham Young University.

After redshirting his freshman year in 2006–07, he decided to give football another try. He transferred to USC to play football as a wide receiver in 2007.

When he was at Brigham Young University, Utah’s football coach – Kyle Wittingham – came in touch with the family and asked him to play football.

Because Kyle Wittingham believed that he had a great future in this particular sport.

However, when the university refused to accept some of Cameron’s credits from Brigham Young, he was forced to withdraw and attend Ventura College.

He missed the football season but was given the option to rejoin the team in 2008. Even if he had stayed at USC, due to NCAA transfer rules he would have been ineligible to play in 2007.

Then he ended up enrolling at USC a year later and saw brief action for the Trojans at wide receiver in both the 2008 and 2009 seasons, but did not make any catches.

Before his senior year, the team moved him from receiver to tight end, and embraced the move. In his final season at USC, he caught 16 passes for 126 yards and a touchdown.


After his senior season at USC, he was invited to play in the East-West Shrine Game. There, he made a big impression on the coaches during the week of practice.

He also helped his draft stock significantly during his workouts at the NFL Combine.

Then he was in the top three of every drill he participated in and fifth in bench press reps. He was projected to be a mid to late-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
