Jackson (La.) East Feliciana three-star athlete Kameron McKnight has made a name for himself as a multi-purpose prospect capable of playing on both sides of the ball.
At 6-foot-2, 215-pounds McKnight has been a standout at receiver, running back, linebacker, and defensive end, and his size combined with 4.6 speed has made him a prospect of interest for college coaches across the country.
Offers have already come through from Houston, Louisiana-Lafayette, McNeese State, Memphis, Mississippi State, Notre Dame, Southeastern Louisiana, Southern, and Tulane, and interest has come from Alabama, LSU, Louisiana Tech, and Southern Miss.
This summer he has only attended the LSU camp, which was productive. The Tigers continue to show interest, McKnight learned a lot, he had a good time, and he felt like he left an impression on the Tiger coaching staff.
"It was good. I liked when we did route combinations and the 7-on-7 too," McKnight said. "They said I looked good. Les Miles said I looked like Demetrius Byrd."
At the camp, McKnight worked at a few positions on the field and he has noticed two positions keep coming up when talking to college coaches.
"Outside linebacker and wide receiver," McKnight said. "I think it's going to end up being outside linebacker or wide receiver one of those two."
He admits running back is his favorite position, but he is also clear about being open to anything.
On the recruiting front, McKnight is also keeping an open mind. He does not currently claim a favorite, and he is in no hurry to narrow his list at this point. He also does not have many visit plans, but he will attend a couple of camps in July.
"I think I'm supposed to go back to LSU and then I'm supposed to go to Alabama," McKnight said.
