Brian Brecht and the Rutgers Scarlet Knights have added yet picked up another transfer for the 2022 season as former North Carolina attackman Brian Cameron plans to join the Scarlet Knights next season. Kyle Devitte of New England Lacrosse Journal was the first to report the news on Thursday night. Cameron will have two years of eligibility left after graduating from Carolina.
Cameron is the sixth transfer the Scarlet Knights have grabbed this offseason, joining former Penn midfielder Mitch Bartolo, Salisbury defenseman Brad Apgar, Providence goalie Toby Bugdorf, Mount St. Mary’s faceoff man Sam Stephan, and Wesleyan attackman Ronan Jacoby.
A native of Bedford, N.H., Cameron has appeared in 38 contests with 15 starts, which includes all seven games in 2020 and seven contests in 2021, during his time in Chapel Hill. He has put up a career total of 49 points (38G/11A). Cameron was the Tar Heels’ seventh-leading scorer this past season with 17 points off 16 goals and one assist while helping lead them to a Championship Weekend appearance.
The former Tar Heel joins a Rutgers program that is coming off an NCAA Quarterfinal appearance where they fell to North Carolina in and is losing their top three scorers in Adam Charalambides, Connor Kirst and, Kieran Mullins. The trio accounted for 57% of the Scarlet Knights’ offensive production this past season with a combined for 165 of Rutgers’ 289 points coming from those three alone.
Adding Cameron along with Bartolo and Jacoby should soften the blow due to losses on the offensive end and give the Scarlet Knights some very good options and weapons to work with during the 2022 season.
