Malveaux Makes the Call

The Houston Cougars continued to piece together their 2012 recruiting class over the weekend as they added the 13th verbal commitment of the class in Hamshire Fannett defensive end Cameron Malveaux.

Malveaux's recruitment fell into place over the last few weeks for the Cougars, but he admits that the Cougars were always at the top of his list.

"I went to their summer camp and I hooked up with coach (Carlton) Hall," the 6-foof-6, 215-pound defensive end said. "The next week they sent me an offer and I've always wanted to go to Houston, so I took it."

Malveaux was actually on hand for Houston's first scrimmage this past Saturday and took a tour of the campus after the game and came away impressed.

"I came there for the scrimmage and also took a tour after the game," He said. "I've never actually seen college football like that, I mean I saw it at Lamar, but not a D1 school, it was pretty explosive in my opinion, and I really liked it."

While Malveaux likes the Cougar defense, he was just as impressed with what they can offer in the classroom.

"I heard that Houston's business school was one of the best in the country," the athletic defensive end said. "That was a big factor for me and I've always liked Houston, growing up I used to go to a lot of games with my Uncle and he lives down in Houston."

Malveaux is the second defensive end in the class so far joining Eisenhower's Gregory Jackson and he is the sixth defensive player in the group.
