Cameron began playing sports: tee ball, baseball, football and basketball, at an early age, developing a strong love to play only basketball. Over time, basketball brought Cam joy and comfort, with the understanding it was only a game, which paralleled life's ups and downs.

He went on to average 22 points and 10 rebounds at Theodore Roosevelt High School. Cam walked on the UAB basketball program earning a full scholarship, playing four seasons. In his senior season at UAB, he averaged 16.1 points and 10.5 rebounds, named to 2011-12 All Conference USA First Team, 2011-12 All Conference Defensive First Team and 2011-12 All Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year, Conference USA Player of the week (2). He ranked second in UAB history in double-doubles (28) and blocked shots (137) and fourth in total rebounds (747). He was one of three players with more than 1,000 points and 700 rebounds in his career. He was undrafted in 2012, but joined the Los Angeles Clippers for the 2012 NBA Summer League then signing with Ferro-ZNTU of Ukraine for the 2012-13 season. He joined the New Orleans Pelicans for the NBA Summer League 2013-14 signing with Juvecaserta Basket of Italy for the 2013-14 season.
