One-time top prospect who battled years of injuries to make it back to the North Carolina lineup in 2012.

What Scouts Say: "Dealt with a lot of injuries… Had some special plays for them… left-footed, clever, confident on the ball… Did he lose a step after injury? Pre-injury was very good coming out of Solar in Texas ... One of the most decorated players coming out of high school ... Dangerous when he was on the ball. Running at people and quick combinations are his strength ... As far as attitude, he lacked maturity and was prone to receive cards ....The injury has probably humbed him ... Plays underneath as an attacking midfielder and can play wide left ... Does he have the pace to play wide left? Before the injury I'd say yes, after injury I'm not sure... Question with Cam is not his soccer ability, it's his intangibles outside of soccer in terms of his temper, leadership and those things -- whether he can mentally keep it together ... Don't think this season was fully reflective of where he'll end up ... Last couple of years he's been in Carolina Railhawks summer program."
