Recruiting: Virginia LB Cameron Binkowski joins Army 2025 class

Cameron Binkowski wasn’t looking for the easy route during his college football recruiting.

Binkowski wanted to be tested athletically, academically and socially. The Battlefield (Va.) linebacker discovered the right fit with Army. Binkowski committed to head coach Jeff Monken, defensive coordinator Nate Woody and receivers and recruiting coach Aaron Smith Thursday, The 6-foot-1, 235-pound senior led Virginia with 22 sacks in 2023.

“Army was always at the top of my board,” Binkowski said. “The place is unreal and the energy there is something else. I wanted to go to a school that would give me the biggest challenges so I could grow the best I could.”

“The main reason (that he chose Army was ) that it’s different from the rest in many ways and would challenge me to be my best.”

Army was the first to offer Binkowski back in February. The Black Knights were already on his radar. Binkowski’s older brothers were both offered by Army. Matt played at James Madison. Brandon signed with Villanova and will be a freshman this fall.

Binkowski, who holds 20 offers, the majority from FCS (Division I-A) and Ivy League schools, has visited Army three times, including the Black and Gold spring game in April.

“Every time I go there, it never gets old,” Binkowski said. “The place is awesome and there is something about it that I love.”

Army is recruiting Binkowski to play the “Dog” position. Binkowski believes his skills are a “perfect fit” for outside linebacker spot.

“I’ll be able to play off the edge and get to the quarterback,” Binkowski said.

Binkowski wouldn’t be the first member of his family to serve in the military. His uncle was a general in Army.
