"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.

Ohio's Cameron Mobley could be a Midwest "Hot 100" selection in August.
