Lincolnshire (Ill.) Stevenson class of 2015 wide receiver Cameron Green has been active on the summer camp circuit. His most recent trip took him to Vanderbilt, a school he already held in high regards.
"I have a lot of interest in them. They are one of my top three schools," Green said. "Also, I have a lot of family down there and my sister wanted to visit the campus too.
"I loved the campus, it was very nice. The coaches were unbelievable. Not only did I like them but my family liked them too. It was a good visit."

While Green was impressed with his experience in Nashville, his performance at Vanderbilt's camp received a strong, positive response from the coaching staff.
"It was good feedback from them," he said. "They mostly said to stick around, keep talking to them and stay in contact because they would like me to play for them."
At this early stage of his recruitment, Green said Notre Dame and Wisconsin join Vanderbilt in his top three.
Green also took part in Notre Dame's camp this summer, and received positive feedback from their coaching staff. It was the latest of many visits he has made to South Bend, where his father captained the Irish in the 1980's. That connection has helped Notre Dame earn a spot in his early top three.
"It is a little bit of a factor, but I know my dad doesn't really care too much," Green said. He'll be happy with whatever I choose when I get a chance to do that."
Green has yet to visit Wisconsin, but his father and sister were on the Madison campus within the last week. Green's sister is a year older, and the two are enjoying evaluating schools together.
Other camps Green attended this summer were at Northwestern and Illinois. He received a similar response from the Wildcats as he got at Vanderbilt and Notre Dame.
"At the Northwestern camp I got a chance to talk with [head coach] Pat Fitzgerald," Green said. "He said to stay focused on what I am doing, work hard this summer, make sure I get faster, stronger and better and he said to stay focused in the classroom also."
While schools across the country are showing interest in Green, the 6-foot-1, 189-pound wideout is still waiting on his first offer.
"Teams are interested, they just want to see more in the first couple games," Green said. "Being 2015 and only 15 years old, they like what they see, they just want to see more."
