Cameron Gamble Signs With LSU

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

After impressing at LSU's Special Teams camp, Gamble was given his dream scholarship offer and wasted little time in accepting it.

Coming out of the greatest high school in the United States...okay, maybe it's just my alma mater too, leave me alone, Cameron Gamble sought his dream offer of LSU.  After showcasing his strong leg at the LSU Special Teams camp back in July of last year, it didn't take long for him to receive that offer.  He quickly jumped on board.  While he still needs to work on become a better field goal kicker, you can't teach the leg strength that he possesses.  That strength could come in handy in getting him early playing time.

What He Brings to Baton Rouge

With James Hairston entering his senior year next season, there will be a void for a kickoff specialist following the 2014 season.  Insert Cameron Gamble.  When watching his highlights, Gamble has no problem in clearing the end zone in high school, and while they kick from the 40 as opposed to the 35 in college, there is still no issue with him getting out the back of the end zone.  With the emergence of redshirt freshman kicker Colby Delahoussaye, the staff won't be required to rush Gamble into field goal duty.  If he doesn't find that ability, he will still be a valuable special teams member with his kickoff power.  We all saw before Hairston came here the need to have a kicker who can do that consistently.

There hasn't been much to come from my high school.  James Hanna is a serviceable tight end for the Dallas Cowboys and Nick Stephens was on the Cowboys in the preseason, but there hasn't been much more.  It's cool to see someone come from my high school and attend a school I root for with a passion.  You already have one fan in me Cameron.
