LSU OC Cam Cameron reportedly bought plane tickets to sit with recruits to UCLA

How desperate are things getting for college football coaches entering National Signing Day for high school recruits? As desperate as it gets.

According to one report, LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron even went so far as to buy plane tickets to sit on a flight with three recruits from the state of Louisiana to and from their recruiting visit to UCLA.

Here’s what premium UCLA recruiting website Bruin Report Online reported:

According to Bruins Nation, the recruits in question are Devon Godchaux, Kenny Young and Malachi Dupre. Godchaux is a defensive end committed to LSU, but he took official visits to Auburn and UCLA as well according to Rivals. Young is a four-star linebacker who’s visited Arkansas, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M and UCLA. Dupre is a five-star wide receiver prospect who has taken official visits to LSU, Alabama, Florida State and UCLA.

Bruin Report Online says Cameron is (was?) sitting next to Dupre on his flight. If that’s true, maybe we can say Cameron is also looking to do some last-minute recruiting not only for the guys visiting UCLA, but also some LA-based recruits who are considering LSU. Adoree Jackson would be one of those players. He’s a five-star recruit from Serra in Gardena and has finalized his list to LSU, Florida, UCLA and USC. He already took an official visit to LSU, so it would make plenty of sense for Cameron to fly in to make a last push.

In light of the recruiting story, UCLA fans had some fun with Cameron’s wikipedia page:

Don’t get too cocky there, Bruins fans. Until they sign the letters of intent, we don’t know whether Cameron’s alleged strategy pays off.
