Stevenson’sCameron Green has given an oral commitment to Northwestern.

The wide receiver is a three-star prospect according toScout.com,ranked61st nationally for receivers, a deep position in the rising senior class.

Green stands 6-foot-2, 190 pounds and has impressed,picking up offers from Virginia Tech, Purdue, Iowa, Iowa State, Illinois and others.

“Cameron is a good-sized receiver who catches just about anything thrown his way,” said Scout.com national recruiting analyst Allen Trieu. “He adjusts to passes well, has very sure hands and makes catches in traffic and while absorbing contact. He’s not a speed demon, but he’s very smooth and understands how to run routes and get open.”

Northwestern beat writer Nick Medline of PurpleWildcats.com agrees about the potential Green brings to the field for the Wildcats.

“Last September, Northwestern watched Cameron Green and loved him,” said Medline.”They needed to replace top receivers, and he was their number one priority. When Erie (Pa.) receiver Charlie Fessler committed earlier in the day, they told Green it was now or never. And just like that, they got him.”

In the end, there was a reason why Green was made such a priority by Northwestern.

“Northwestern has done well with bigger bodied receivers like him. Christian Jones and Cameron Dickerson are two receivers with size and similar styles to him that he’s going to be able to learn from,” said Trieu.

Trieu also believes that Green will have a shot at early playing time for the Wildcats, something which he could capitalize on once he arrives in Evanston.

“The way the Wildcats spread the ball around, there will be plenty of chances for Cameron to come in and make plays and help them win ball games,” Trieu said. “They’ve picked up a couple receivers in this class with ability and I see him as a kid who you could put into any offense and he’ll make plays because he’s smart and reliable.”
