recruit757 Fab 30: Cam’Ron Kelly – Oscar Smith High School #2
by Andy Hilton, recruit757
Who knew that we would see our #2 athlete make his college commitment on the day he was to be named as a member of our Fab 30? We put this one off for a few hours so that there wasn’t a glut of news on the same guy. No matter what, he’s certainly deserving of all the attention he’s getting.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in the 757. We’ve scoured the region for talent for almost ten years now, keeping an eye on the best of the best, but also looking for opportunities to connect athlete and high school programs with college coaches. Coming in as the #2 senior prospect region-wide is Oscar Smith multi-purpose athlete Cam’Ron Kelly.
#2 Cam’Ron Kelly (2019 ATH 6-1 190) – Oscar Smith High School
Cam’Ron Kelly committed to Virginia Tech earlier in the summer, decommitted in late July, then confirmed a commitment to Auburn on Wednesday. That commitment was a huge coup for the Tigers.
War Eagle! came the shouts from Auburn fans. Many of them probably aren’t even sure of the athlete that they’re getting.
Kelly got his start at Oscar Smith as a corner back and sometimes wide receiver. As a sophomore, he shined. As a junior, he was thrust into the role of quarterback with the departure of graduating senior Shon Mitchell, who is now at William and Mary and set to win the starter’s job there.
This year, Cam is in position to play quarterback and cornerback, rarely taking a play off. In his time at Oscar Smith, the Tigers have done almost nothing but win. They’ve made the Class 6 State Title game three years in a row, only to have their aspirations dashed by Westfield. It’s go time. In his senior season, the only thing Cam’Ron Kelly has left to achieve is a state championship. We’re hoping to see him bring it home to the 757.
