Maryland CB Chism is blowing up

Forestville (Md.) Bishop McNamara cornerback Cameron Chism is up to four offers. Rivals.com caught up with the 6-foot-1, 175-pounder's head coach Bryce Bevill to find out more on his star recruit.
"He has official offers from Syracuse, Connecticut and Maryland. I believe Pittsburgh has just offered too," he said. "Other schools are looking like Nebraska, Michigan, Rutgers, Penn State and Virginia Tech too.
"He doesn't really have any favorites. Cameron's just taking it all in."
Chism had a big year last season on both sides of the ball registering 41 receptions for 803 yards and seven touchdowns. He added 98 tackles and seven interceptions on defense on his way to first team all-conference and honorable mention all-state. What do colleges like about his ability?
"He's just a very physical player that has great hips," he said. "That's his biggest asset. He's a long rangy player that has big hands and knows how to make plays. He's the total package at cornerback and still might be growing some more.
"Off the field, he's a coach's dream. Cameron's a great kid that is just humble and down-to-earth. He's also an extremely hard worker and a gym rat that is also a solid student."
Chism isn't the only defensive back to watch at Bishop McNamara in 2008. Bevill believes he's got another player in 6-foot-2, 180-pound safety Rafael McCrae.
"He's a very physical and smart kid too," he said. "Again, he's another real humble hardworking kid that works out six days a week with Cameron. He's a solid student too.
"I know he's excited about playing this year after being forced to sit out as a junior due to transferring. He did play on our JV team and was the leading receiver and tackler. As a player, his range is very good. He can go sideline to sideline."
Due to last season, McCrae is under the radar. He however will be attending the Maryland combine this spring.
