The Iowa football team picked up its second recruit in the class of 2012 on Monday.

Wide receiver Cameron Wilson, from Dublin, Ohio, committed to the Hawkeyes on Monday morning, according to Hawkeyeinsider.com’s Rob Howe. The three-star recruit caught 77 passes for 1,075 yards and six touchdowns as a junior for Jerome High in the 2010-11 season.

Wilson was interested in a wide variety of schools, and he received offers from Boston College, Illinois, West Virginia, and 11 others. The 6-2, 195-pound wideout runs a 4.49 40-yard dash, benches 285 pounds, and squats 315 pounds.

A YouTube highlight video showcased Wilson’s ability to make catches in traffic, accelerate after catches, and break away from cover when running routes. He said he still has plenty to work on, though.

“I want to be more explosive and get faster, [and] I also want to work on catching the ball when I’m going against someone one-on-one,” Wilson said in his profile on Scout.com. “I think I can run well after the catch. I run good routes, and I know how to use my body … I have good technique and run routes the right way.”
