2014 linebacker Cameron Queiro of Oradell (N.J.) Bergen Catholic picked up his first offer from Northwestern about a month ago and yesterday added his second offer from an SEC school. Queiro is getting serious interest from a number of other schools and is beginning to think about which ones he would like to visit.
Queiro's second offer came from Vanderbilt yesterday.
"Well the coaches at Vanderbilt said they loved my tape and wanted to get in touch with me when they got the chance," he said. "I have called the coaches a few times and got a chance to talk to them on a weekly basis. It was great to know them and they said Coach Shoop was coming to school soon. I was glad to meet him and I got the offer. I was ecstatic."

Since he has been talking to the coaches for a few weeks, he has gathered some information on the program.
"It's a great program," said Queiro, who is 6-foot-0 and 195-pounds. "It's in the toughest conference in the country and is one of the top academic schools in the country. I always root for them when I see them on TV. I like the school a lot and hopefully I can visit soon."
Besides his two offers, Queiro is also claiming serious interest from Pittsburgh, N.C. State, Syracuse, Rutgers, Boston College, Penn State and Temple.
With all of this interest coming his way, Queiro would like to take a few visits.
"I haven't planned any yet, but I'm definitely going to visit Northwestern after this season and I'll try to visit Pitt, Syracuse, Rutgers and Vanderbilt sometime on winter break," said Queiro, whose brother, Kyle Queiro, is currently committed to Northwestern.
While he has yet to take any visits, he does know what he will be looking for when he finally hits the road.
"I am hoping to talk to the coaches, get a feel for the facilities and see the lifestyle of each school," said Queiro.
This fall, Queiro is happy with how his junior season is progressing.
"It's great, even though it is going pretty fast," he said. "It's exciting, especially with our schedule. I feel that I have gotten quicker in movement and I'm playing the ball better now."
