Utah QB Cameron Rising reportedly invited to prestigious quarterback camp
Utah’s Cameron Rising has a chance to be one of college football’s top quarterbacks next season.
The Utah captain ended his debut campaign in 2021 as the sixth-ranked quarterback in the country by ESPN’s QBR metric. He earned first-team All-Pac-12 honors and led the Utes to their first-ever Pac-12 championship. Rising had what appears to be an incredibly productive spring as the Utah offense looked dynamic in the team’s spring game last week.
Now, it seems his summer will be even busier.
According to UteNation’s Alex Markham, Rising has been invited to both the Steve Clarkson Quarterback Retreat and the Manning Passing Academy. Rising will serve as a camp counselor alongside, according to Markham, Clemson’s DJ Uiagalelei, USC’s Caleb Willams, Alabama’s Bryce Young, Ohio State’s CJ Stroud, and Miami’s Tyler Van Dyke.
The Manning Passing Academy needs no qualifier. To be invited as a camp counselor is a wonderful honor for quarterbacks. Rising should be able to continue building and elevating his brand alongside The First Family of Football and other elite college football quarterbacks.
Prior to the 2021 season, Rising had thrown six pass attempts in his first three seasons. A redshirt year in 2018 at Texas, then a year on the bench in 2019 at Utah, and an injury in 2020 that knocked him out of the first game of the season and for the rest of the year.
He took over for since-departed quarterback Charlie Brewer in Utah’s third game of the year and led the team from 1-2 to the Rose Bowl. Rising threw for 2,493 yards and 20 touchdowns in 2021. He tossed only five interceptions while completing 64% of his pass attempts.
He’ll look to build on that success in 2022.
