In All American, Edwards’ character was Spencer James’ (Daniel Ezra) nemesis on the football team. However, they soon become friends in the series. Now that he’s a recent graduate of South Crenshaw High, he will be a freshman student at Bringston University on All American: Homecoming. But while Cam is the same charming yet extremely cocky football star fans loved, a shocking turn of fate early will have Cam reevaluating who he really is inside and out.
King will recur as Nathaniel, the non-binary, gender-fluid personification of fly AF. Equally masculine and feminine, Nate brings another kind of hustle to Bringston that isn’t found on a field or court — she’s a thriving stylist and loyal above all. Her friends are her world, particularly her besties Simone and Keisha.
