More on this story

Leinart, 23, one of PEOPLE's 2006 Most Beautiful People, graduated from USC in December 2005 and lives in Los Angeles and Arizona.

Cameron, a 20-year-old USC junior, will sit out the upcoming basketball season.

"It's an exciting time in their life," says a source who knows both athletes. "They both have support from their families."

Leinart, a Heisman trophy winner and close pal of Nick Lachey, was linked romantically to Paris Hilton in the past.

He is currently raising money to start the Matt Leinart Foundation, a learning center for underprivileged and disabled children. "Kids are important to Matt," his rep tells PEOPLE. "He really wants to help kids who can't help themselves."
