Shallowater (Tex.) tight end Cameron Knight has been receiving college attention throughout the spring and on Wednesday, the athlete picked up his first offer from UTEP.

"[Receivers coach] Todd Whitten came by the school a couple of weeks ago and he was really excited to talk to me and our running back, Jarek Black, who got offered as well. He called me on Wednesday and said they have a scholarship for me and that they would love to have me there," he said.

While the 6-foot-3, 250-pound prospect had the chance to attend LSU Junior Day and visit Rice earlier this spring, he has yet to make a visit to El Paso.

However, he looks forward to learning more about the Miners' program.

"I haven't been to their campus yet, but I'm definitely going to go this summer, whether it's to their camp or just for a visit," he said.

It was a busy spring for Knight, as a variety of college programs stopped by the school to check out the tight end.

"Air Force, Texas State, New Mexico, TCU, Rice, and UTEP all came by for spring practices this year," he said.

Knight is also hearing from Minnesota, Nebraska, LSU, Houston, Utah, Oklahoma, Michigan State, Iowa State, Cincinnati, South Florida, and Rutgers, and plans to visit a few campuses, starting with an in-state program this weekend.

"I've been in contact with Coach Johnson from Texas State. I'm going to the National Underclassmen Combine in Austin so I'm going to go by San Marcos and check out their campus this weekend," he said.

Knight also plans to hit the camp circuit hard over the next few months.

"This summer, I'll be going to a lot of camps, like SMU, Baylor, Texas Tech, Colorado State, and Air Force, and I'll probably go out to the West Coast and see Stanford and San Diego State, too," he said.
