The 6-1 runner from Plant City, Fla., finished with 66 carries for 263 yards and a score in his debut season while adding 12 receptions. "[Cameron] has unbelievable skills," Brown said. "The kid is as physically gifted as any running back we've had here. I'm excited about what he brings to the table. He has an opportunity to be a feature back and really run with it." Redshirt sophomore Marshun Douglas, who rushed for 125 yards and a pair of touchdowns last fall, and freshmen backs Darius Hale and Kylin James will also factor into the Bears' running game. In the passing game, Smith has a pair of weapons in wide receivers Tyler Hudson and Lujuan Winningham. Hudson, a junior, was the Southland Offensive Player of the Year last season after catching 50 passes for 845 yards and 7 touchdowns. Winningham, a senior, led the Bears with 12 touchdowns on 37 receptions a year ago. "I haven't been around two guys like that in my coaching career," Brown said, "Both of those guys could play for any school in this country. They're both really special with what they have." Those two are bolstered by seniors Mitchell Perkinson, Jarrod Barnes and Tobias Enlow. On defense, UCA expects to create a foundation up front. "You have to build inside out to be a great defense, and I think our defensive line is very good," Brown said. "That will be our strength." That strength starts with pass rushers senior J .W. Jones and junior Logan Jessup, and in the interior with Caden and A'Javius Brown, who combined for 10 tackles in the shortened 2020 season. Adding depth inside is junior Jeremiah Gray — who moves to the interior from the edge — senior Jalen Bedell and Tulane transfer Davon Wright. In the secondary, the Bears will cope with the departure of fourth-round draft pick Robert Rochell with a group led by preseason first-team defensive backs Cameron Godfrey — who led UCA with 11 tackles last fall — and DeAndre Lamont. Sophomore Tamuarion Wilson and redshirt sophomore Nick Nakwaasah each appeared in seven games last fall, and added security comes from Tulane transfer Willie Langham and Austin Peay transfer Nathan Page. "We feel like we have as much depth in the defensive backfield as we've had," Brown said. "When you lose a guy like Robert Rochell, but the next season you still have two first-team preseason all- conference defensive backs, it says a lot about the way you've recruited."
