After a very good senior season, Hockinson (Brush Prairie, Wa.) two-way athlete Cameron Loos has seen an uptick in the amount of interest he’s receiving from college coaches.
“It’s going really good,” Loos told Northwest Elite Index. “Wyoming talked to me after school back about a week ago and then they came and watched me wrestle at practice and then we had an in-home visit after that. They are looking at me mostly as a fullback.
“Central Washington had an in-home visit with me last Wednesday (12/2) and they offered me, but it was only for half the tuition.
“I also saw Eastern and they stopped by after Wyoming did. They haven’t offered me yet, but they said they are very interested in me and the way I play defense.
“Both New Mexico State and Wyoming are talking about me taking visits in January, so we’ll see what happens then and also Portland State is stopping by to see me and they want to talk about setting up a visit too.”
Speaking of how he plays defense, the 6’3″, 235-pounder rarely played much in the second half of any games during the season, but he still managed to haul in 34 receptions for 786 yards and 12 touchdowns and posted 68 tackles and two sacks on the defensive side of the ball.
“I love to play tight end, but I will play anywhere a team sees me fitting in,” Loos said.
Because he plays 2A football and his league isn’t very good, Loos has flown a bit under the radar, but once he gets the opportunity to show what he can do at the next level, he could wind up being a really big asset when presented the chance to shine.
NEI will continue to keep track of Loos’ progress and we will update news on him as it happens.
