Arizona National Signing Day 2014: Cameron Denson brings versatility to both sides of ball

The top HS prospect in Arizona has officially signed with the Wildcats

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Cameron Denson led Salpointe to an undefeated season and state title, wrapped up with a blowout win in the State Championship Game, which was held at Arizona Stadium.

Recruiting coordinator Matt Dudek has always been high on Denson, and of course it helped that he was the first commit of this class.

Denson played all kinds of positions this year, including quarterback, wide receiver, defensive back and kick returner.  I saw him play a couple of times this season, one game against Ironwood Ridge where he absolutely dominated the defending state champs.  He was a man amongst boys in that game, and it was that way for almost every single Salpointe game this season.

RichRod has talked to Denson about playing both ways, and with the overall lack of depth at cornerback compared to next year's WR situation, look for him to be spending more time on defense his freshman year, especially after UA parted ways with Naijiel Hale.

Basically, Denson is the biggest weapon in this recruiting class, and his impact could be felt right away on both sides of the ball, and on special teams.

Big get, and apparently a character guy.  Seems perfect for this team.
