GOLD Coast has tapped into its zone recruiting allowances to snare a key position talent capable of performing at both ends of the ground.

The Suns today signed Clay Cameron, a highly-rated athlete which the baby club has already invested considerable time into developing.

Cameron, who won a rising star nomination playing for NEAFL club Mt Gravatt in 2011, battled osteitis pubis in 2010 - delaying his start in the big time.

"Clay looks a real player, we have been thrilled with the way he has developed, and his football has continued to impress us," Suns list manager Scott Clayton said.

"He is quick and agile and can play at both ends of the ground. Clay is strong overhead, with and outstanding natural leap and clean hands."

The 191cm product was a prominent track and field athlete as a teenager but athletics and rugby union, which his father played, to pursue a career in footy.

"I can't wait to join start my AFL career, and what makes it even sweeter is being able to do it in Queensland," Cameron said.

The Suns have also signed 17-year-old Jack Martin, the hottest bottom-age draft prospect in the country, this off-season, but have lost Josh Caddy to Geelong.

Gold Coast could also offload ruckman Tom Hickey and powerful defender Josh Toy this trade period.

Hickey wants to move to St Kilda to be closer to his girlfriend, while Essendon-raised Toy has a one-year offer on the table from the Suns but has met with three Melbourne clubs.
