Dallas (Texas) Carter 2014 linebacker Cameron Hampton saw the offers mount quickly this spring with the likes of Clemson, LSU, Notre Dame, and Ohio State each extending offers his way.
During the season, Hampton kept his focus on the field and helped the Cowboys to a 9-3 record as a standout linebacker. Since the season has come to an end, Hampton is taking everything in.
"Everything has been good so far," Hampton said. "After football season I'm in basketball now, but I'm still lifting weights and stuff. Recruiting has been going well. The recent coaches I've talked to are Coach Spencer from Oklahoma State and from Ohio State Mike Vrabel came down and talked to me, and somebody from Purdue."

Ohio State, Oklahoma State, and Purdue are not the only schools making their presence known. Texas A&M has also surged up Hampton's list. Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin made a big impression by coming through Carter to get a closer look. The Aggies interest was made clear, and as a result Hampton is high on Texas A&M.
How high are the Aggies? Well, there was talk of a decision.
"There was supposed to be," Hampton said. "I was thinking about committing to Texas A&M."
Before he got too far ahead of himself, he decided to put his decision plans on hold for now.
"I visited last Friday. I just don't think I was ready to commit yet," Hampton said. "I went to watch their bowl practice and talked to coach Sumlin and it was a nice visit."
Still, the Aggies are in prime position when it comes to his recruitment
"A&M is up there," Hampton said. "They are No. 1 right now."
Ohio State and Oklahoma State are also programs high on Hampton's list. He says he has not received any new offers at this moment, and is just having a good time with basketball season right now.
