North Carolina running back becomes WVU’s third pledge for 2015

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — William Cameron, expected to be among of the top running back prospects in North Carolina next season, became the third commitment for West Virginia’s 2015 recruiting class on Monday.

The 5-foot-10, 175-pound junior at Southern Durham (N.C.) High School has been recruited by WVU running backs coach JaJuan Seider and wide receivers coach Lonnie Galloway. Teams such as Florida State, Missouri, Tennessee and Arizona have expressed interest in Cameron.

“Cameron is an explosive athlete who has plenty of speed and wiggle,” said Rivals writer Keenan Cummings of “He’s a guy that could play a number of positions but you will most likely see him at either running back or inside wide receiver when he arrives on campus.”

West Virginia previously received commitments from Miami-Jackson receiver Jovon Durante and Morgantown tight end Stone Wolfley for the 2015 class.

“This is a great start for the Mountaineers, with three players who all figure to be highly recruited,” Cummings said. “It’s always difficult to ensure that any school can hold onto pledges more than a year away from signing day, but having them on the commitment list is much better than the alternative.

“I don’t think it’s an issue of West Virginia pushing for (early) commitments, but more just the situations have fallen in favor of the Mountaineers, who will have more scholarships to play with in the class of 2015.”
