MALIBU, Calif. - Tyler Cameron said Tuesday at the Elite 11 that he has five favorites, he's not sure whether he'll make a commitment before he can take some official visits and that he doesn't have a clear leader.
Tennessee is rumored to be the favorite for Cameron, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound prospect from Jupiter, Fla., and while he talked highly of the Volunteers he said that all five of his schools are even.
It doesn't look as if Cameron wants to give any hints on which way his recruitment might be headed.
"I have a great relationship with coach (Darin) Hinshaw (at Tennessee)," Cameron said.
"We talk quite a bit and I enjoy being around those guys. I had a great experience working out up there and I really felt comfortable around them. When I went to the chalk room with coach (Jim) Chaney, I really felt like I could be around him for the next four or five years."
A recent offer from LSU definitely makes things interesting for Cameron, rated by Rivals.com as the sixth-best dual-threat quarterback in the 2012 class. He said that has been a school he's always watched closely.
"Just a chance to play in the SEC, to play in that environment, it would be an awesome chance," Cameron said.
"Everybody dreams of playing in Death Valley. That was big. I was always kind of looking out for them. I was hoping for an offer over there. I'm taking it day-by-day and I want to visit them for sure and see how it is."
USF, Wake Forest and Purdue are the other programs that round out the list for Cameron, who has been in the middle of the pack after two days at the Elite 11. He doesn't necessarily have a timetable for his decision but said it could happen before he has a chance to take official trips.
There is something about the remaining three teams that intrigues him as well.
"They've been in it from Day 1," Cameron said of USF. "They've been after me consistently. I talk to coach (Peter) Vaas all the time. They feel like family because they've been around for so long.
"My coach has a lot of respect for (coach Ray McCartney at Wake Forest) and I've grown to have a lot of respect for him. I went up there and really enjoyed it a lot being around their coach. It was great.
"Purdue is in the mix. Coach (Gary) Nord is a great guy. He said I'd have the opportunity to play early which is big on my list. It's important to me. (The depth chart) is really important to me, that's big for them and that's why I like them a lot."
