Gibson and Cameron's commitment

It is no longer only the 561-area code that unites Tyler Cameron with Dominique Gibson, but the colors Black and Gold.

Gibson was integral to Wake Forest stealing Cameron away from South Florida.

"One day he wrote me on Facebook, 'You're committed to Wake Forest?' and I'm like, 'Yeah, I like that school, you should come with me,'" Gibson said. "Ever since then I've been talking to him, and me and him became real close, and I got him into committing. Coach Mac was a big part of Tyler committing too. Everybody loves Coach Mac."

Cameron (Rated as a three-star recruit, the nation's No. 9 dual-threat quarterback and the No. 50 prospect in Florida by Rivals.com) a 6-foot-3 and 210-pounder from Jupiter (Fla.) said Gibson was right about Wake.

"When I was up there I got a real college atmosphere and a college vibe," Cameron said. "I went to the game and it's just totally a different feel than [South Florida]. USF is a great program and it's a great place, but I was in love with Wake Forest when I was up there. I was blown away by it."

The dual-threat quarterback was in Winston-Salem to see the Demon Deacons entertain Notre Dame, which he referred to as an awesome experience.

Like Gibson, Cameron is also on the recruiting trail for the Deacs. He is after his friend Devonte Robinson (Rated as a three-star recruit, the nation's No. 78 wide receiver and the No. 82 prospect in Florida), who is a soft-verbal commitment to West Virginia.

"That's my big one I want," Cameron said. "It would be nice to throw to him. He's a big-time playmaker on the offensive side of the ball."

Cameron graduates from high school later this month, and plans to enroll at Wake Forest for the upcoming semester and participate in spring practice with the Deacs.

Gibson (Rated as a three-star recruit, the nation's No. 49 outside linebacker and the No. 74 prospect in Florida by Rivals.com) a 5-foot-10 and 190-pounder looks forward to playing with Cameron at the next level.

The projected strong safety may switch to running back when he gets to Winston-Salem, which he was first informed of when he visited Wake for its game against Gardner-Webb. Ray McCartney talked with him again about the possible position-change last weekend.

"At running back I might be at the fourth spot and at [strong] safety I might be at the third or second spot," Gibson said. "It really doesn't matter to me. You could put me at d-line and I'd play. I just love the sport. I just love to get out there. I love to win. I feel like I'm going to help Wake Forest win, and I know they're going to help me be a better person."

Gibson will play in the Nike All-Star game Friday, Dec. 23 for the top prospects in Florida.

Cameron said he and Gibson are boys, and Gibson said he is excited to build championship-winning chemistry at Wake Forest with Cameron
