For quarterback Brandon Harris (Bossier City, La./Parkway), the schedule book is starting to fill.

The first day to mark off the calendar is Thursday, when his Parkway team scrimmages Alexandria (La.) Senior High to conclude spring drills. He'll play in front of coaches from several major colleges. At the end of the scrimmage, sometime around 7 p.m, he'll announce which six schools he plans on visiting this summer.

"It's going to be a big day," he said. "I can't wait."

Quentin GibsonDavid Helman/ESPN.comLouisiana quarterback Quentin Gibson recently spent time chatting with LSU's Frank Wilson about the Tigers' offense and new offensive coordinator Cam Cameron.

On a warm spring day at Parkway High School in Bossier City, La., a quarterback named Brandon Harris brought back memories of the good old days gone by.

ATHENS, Ga. -- For most high school players, the end of practice means they get a break from the incessant nagging and ceaseless instruction of their coaches. They go home, eat dinner, study and enjoy the respite until the whistles start blowing next time. For ESPN Watch List safety Quincy Wilson (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./University School), that is not the case.

Wilson’s father is the defensive coordinator and the defensive backs coach at the University School, so Wilson jokes that he gets no respite.

“Oh no, there’s no break, there’s no break,” Wilson said. “Monday through Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Yeah, I get it at practice, before practice, after practice, in the car, at the dinner table ...”

The talented junior laughed about the nonstop instruction but he also credited his father with making him the player he is today -- one of the most coveted safeties in Florida.

2014 Florida ATH's stock rising fast

Two-way athlete Brandon Powell (Deerfield Beach, Fla./Deerfield Beach) is one of the fastest-rising prospects in the state of Florida in the last four weeks or so.

Offers from Cincinnati, Indiana, Marshall, Massachusetts, Northwestern, Purdue, USF and West Virginia had all come in for the 2014 prospect. But two big ones on the same day were the highlight.

"It was exciting, especially when I got Tennessee and LSU in the same day," Powell said. "That was a big day for me. It is just that they are in the SEC. That is the big-time conference in college football. That's why it was so big for me."

Cameron brings diverse past to LSU

BATON ROUGE, La. -- When we last saw Cam Cameron, he was being fired as offensive coordinator of the NFL's Baltimore Ravens, taking the fall after an overtime loss to Beltway rival Washington with three games left in the season.

At the time, the buzz was that Baltimore’s offense was vanilla, had gotten away from what gave it early success and perhaps did not feature running back Ray Rice enough.

When we last saw Cameron in college football, he was coaching an Indiana Hoosiers team that put up big offensive numbers with Antwaan Randle El at quarterback, but lost twice as many games as it won because of a porous defense. That was 12 years ago.

The question now as Cameron prepares to begin his new job as LSU’s offensive coordinator is this: What Cam Cameron is LSU getting? The one that won with a dual-threat quarterback at Indiana? The one that mentored the Ravens offense for the first three-quarters of a Super Bowl-winning season?

Or how about the one who knew LSU coach Les Miles when they both were understudies of Bo Schembechler at Michigan? Or the one who helped mold Drew Brees and Philip Rivers with the San Diego Chargers?

Those who covered Cameron in previous jobs say you shouldn’t expect any of it.

2014 QB Cornwell with plenty of options

Quarterback David Cornwell (Jones, Okla./Jones) came out of nowhere to have an exceptional junior season and is now unquestionably one of the top in-state prospects for the Class of 2014.

Problem is, though, neither Oklahoma nor in-state power Oklahoma State have shown much interest. Cornwell camped at OU and had good contact with former OSU quarterbacks coach Todd Monken.

With Monken’s departure to become the Southern Mississippi head coach combined with little interest from OU quarterbacks coach Josh Heupel thus far, right now it looks like one of the state’s best prospects will have to look elsewhere.

2014 TE Jacory Washington ready to work

BATON ROUGE, La. -- Like most high school football players in Louisiana, 2014 tight end prospect Jacory Washington (Westlake, La./Westlake) has had to wait an extra week for his high school season to start.

Washington's Westlake team is based near Lake Charles, La., mostly out of the way of Hurricane Isaac's path through Louisiana. But Westlake's Week 1 opponent, Eleanor McMain, is based in New Orleans. The Warriors, like so many other teams in the state, had their opener canceled.

Washington is one of the top juniors in the state, with interest coming from the likes of Alabama, Texas A&M and obviously the home state school, LSU. He took the opportunity from the cancellation to drive to Baton Rouge for LSU's home opener against North Texas. The trip to Tiger Stadium is just a two-hour drive from Lake Charles -- one Washington said he'd have likely made even with a game Friday. But the bye week made for an eventful trip to campus.
