Dayton (Ohio) Trotwood-Madison running back Cameron Mobley has emerged as a Midwest “Hot 100” candidate. Mobley is built low to the ground, he has excellent instincts, vision, and he can make defenders miss. Several schools have already offered Cameron a scholarship.

“I have offers from Ohio, Kent State, Colorado State, New Mexico, Miami (Ohio) and Illinois State.

“My favorites in no order are Michigan State, Colorado State, Connecticut, Boston College, Indiana, Miami (Ohio) and Kent State.

“I don’t have a leader right now. I’m still hoping for more offers during the season. I have things to take care of and hopefully everything will fall into place.”

Those “things” that Cameron needs to address are in the classroom, not the football field. Check out highlights of Mobley and you’ll see that his lack of big-time scholarship offers have nothing to do with his ability to perform on a football field.

“I have a 3.0 GPA but I do need to re-take the ACT test,” Mobley explained. “Once I get a qualifying score, I’m sure other schools will take a look at me.”

The 5-foot-8, 185-pound, Mobley, is quite a talent. He says his running style is that of Barry Sanders. He’s strong enough to run inside and he can make people miss. As a junior, Mobley carried the ball for 1,401 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was named all-conference.

“I’m going to probably play both ways this year,” said Mobley. “There are a lot of coaches who want to look at me as a cornerback, so I’m going to work hard this year and we’ll see what happens.”

Mobley camped this summer at Ohio State, Ball State and Miami (Ohio). He’ll be a three-year varsity starter for Coach Maurice Douglass and the Rams. Cameron started as a wide receiver during his sophomore season, he was moved to running back in 2004.
