MANHATTAN, Kan. - It's always a good idea to bring in a bulk of defensive lineman in any recruiting…
JUCO Nose Tackle Targeted
"I talked to Coach Morrison briefly on Wednesday, and he said he wanted to come watch me play in person because he really likes my film," Campbell said. "He I could come in and play immediately at nose tackle. He's talking to my head coach soon because he was nervous about extending an offer because of all the offers I have, but I am interested."
The three-star prospect holds 15 offers but is still weighing his options and looking for a perfect fit. Campbell does not have a set top-5 but says a few schools are standing out at the moment.
"Baylor, Washington, TCU, Michigan State, and Mississippi St. are recruiting me the hardest. I'm kind of exploring my options right now," Campbell said. "UTSA was my very first off so I'm still interested in them. I'm not just a BCS guy. I want to go to place that's the best fit for me."
As far as SMU, Campbell admits that he's not extremely familiar with the Dallas-based program but hopes to maintain a strong relationship with Morrison and do more research on SMU and what it has to offer.
"I don't know too much about SMU, but I would love to learn more about them. I saw the Pony Excess documentary on ESPN, and I think the tradition they have is great," he said. "Really, I'm interested in hearing from any school that's interested in me. Texas is a football state so obviously my interest is high."
On Saturday, Campbell's season came to an end with a 45-42 loss to San Diego Mesa. But the 6-foot-2, 290-pounder said it was a season to remember after notching 47 tackles including 20 for loss and 4.5 sacks.
"My season just ended last night. Playing here was a really good learning experience," he said. "It really makes a man out of you and made me stronger. I was questioning myself in January but I worked hard and my recruitment blew up this summer."
Originally from Kathleen (FL), Campbell decided to go the JUCO route in order to improve his stock, which has skyrocketed. After an impressive campaign, he now is just focused on graduating in December and picking his future home for the next two years.
"I'm just hitting the weight room hard and the books hard so I can graduate," Campbell said. "I'm excited to have the opportunity to play at the Division I level. I feel like I bring a nastiness and aggressiveness to the defensive line. I'm a playmaker and can't wait to show that."
