HALLANDALE, Fla. - Amongst the quarterbacks participating in the South Florida Express 7-on-7 tryout was Jupiter (Fla.) dual-threat Tyler Cameron. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound signal-caller enjoyed the experience.
"It has been fun," Cameron said. "Competition is always good for everybody. It helps you get better. It has been a good time."
"There was a lot of competition out here," Cameron added. "The defensive backs were really strong."

It also marked the first time that Cameron has had that many throwing reps in a while, as he is returning from a recent injury.
"I have an incomplete tear in my labrum in my throwing shoulder right now," Cameron said. "It is slowing me down a little bit. I just released a week or two ago to start working out so I am slowly but surely getting back to normal."
While Cameron rehabs, he already has numerous offers to sort through and research.
"I have seven right now," Cameron said. "Boston College, Marshall, Florida Atlantic, Louisville, Rutgers, South Florida, and Illinois."
He is planning to take some Junior Day visits in order to learn more about some of the schools that are interested in him.
"I was supposed to go to Georgia last week and LSU this week, if I didn't have this, I would have gone to LSU. Georgia I couldn't make," Cameron said. "I am supposed to go to Florida and Miami next weekend, so we will see how that goes."
Prior to and during his junior season, he took a number of trips.
"I went to Florida, Florida State, Miami, and USF for games this past year," Cameron said. "Last summer I traveled to Auburn, Alabama, and then Florida and Florida State and back down to USF."
At this point, Cameron doesn't claim a leader, but he does know what he wants in whichever college he ends up selecting.
"I just want to find a place where I feel comfortable and like the coaching staff a lot," Cameron said. "I also have to see who is in front of me and when I can get in. Playing time is a big deal for me. You don't want to sit behind someone the whole time you are in college."
Cameron's father played for the University of Florida in 1982, and while he admits to growing up watching the Gators, he said that he will go wherever is best for him.
As a junior, Cameron completed 52-of-99 passes for 821 yards, seven touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also rushed for 478 yards and six touchdowns on 100 carries.
