Cam Cameron got his first head-coaching gig at Indiana.

Now his son will start his career there, too.

Danny Cameron, a pro-style quarterback, committed to play for the Hoosiers, it was reported on Wednesday.

The incoming freshman wasn't ranked by Rivals but carries with him a name that'll rapidly spark memories in Hoosiers fans.

The elder Cameron wasn't very successful in his five seasons as the Hoosier head coach from 1997 to 2001, posting a record of 18-37. But since he's gone on to win a Super Bowl in 2012 as the offensive coordinator with the Baltimore Ravens and run one of college football's most high-profile offenses at LSU, where he started last season. He had a one-year stint as the head coach of the Miami Dolphins, which ended in a historically bad 1-15 record.

Danny, meanwhile, will be eligible to play right away for the Hoosiers. While Indiana has had some summer turmoil with its QB depth chart — Tre Roberson transferred to Illinois State last month (and quoted Jay-Z in the process) — there's no telling if or how much Danny Cameron would play. Nate Sudfeld figures to have the starting job sewn up with Roberson's departure. Other quarterbacks on the roster are inexperienced and include junior Max Matthews, sophomore Nate Boudreau and freshmen Bryce Smith, Zander Diamont and Matt Marencik.
