Cameron Cantrell, younger brother to current Red Raider footballer Dylan Cantrell, is making the decision prior to his junior year, to commit to Texas Tech.

You can take your pick of articles to read (or read all three of them!) as RedRaiderSports’ Brandon Soliz, Inside the Red Raiders’ Zach Tanner and A-J Media’s Don Williams all have articles where they talked with Cantrell. This is from Tanner’s article:

“I called coach Jones when I committed, because he was the one that offered me initially. We talked for a little bit before I committed. When I committed, he immediately said that he wanted to get me on the phone with coach Kingsbury. He forwarded me to coach Kingsbury and we talked for a little bit, he said he was very excited and loved that he made the decision. He talked about how much he loved Dylan and how he knew I had the same work ethic Dylan does. He was pretty busy, so we didn’t get to talk for too long, but it was good talking to him.”

Cantrell is a work in progress, but he’s just finishing his sophomore season and starting his junior year. That’s the thing about all of this, which is that we don’t know what type of player that Cantrell will grow into as he could still grow physically and the thought process that he’s one thing now, but another thing in 2 or 4 years is what’s interesting. The Cantrell kids have always been great at going up and getting the ball and they all have terrific hands. I’d guess that Cameron is no exception. He’s got good speed and the fact that he talks about needing to improve his game, particularly blocking makes me think that Cantrell gets it. He’s probably not big enough just yet to do what they want on the outside and maybe lacks some quickness for the inside. Bottom line for me is that I think that Texas Tech knows they want Cantrell here and they’ll figure out the position a bit later.

Cameron, welcome to Texas Tech and Git Your Guns Up!
