Campbell Visits Michigan
Jayru Campbell has been on a big stage early in his Cass Tech career, leading the team to a state title as a freshman last season and playing in Ford Field. Now a sophomore, Campbell is beginning to take some visits, and got to see another big stage on Saturday for the first time when he went to Michigan Stadium. "I had never been to a Michigan game," he said. "It was pretty fun watching Michigan play and getting a good view. We had some good seats. I really like the stadium. It's biggest stadium. There were a lot of people there. I got to see when Michigan had a big play, how the crowd get all hyped, the student section having chants, and it was just a fun experience, just to finally be to a game to see what it's all about." Campbell says he met and spoke with director of player personnel Chris Singletary, but did not interact with any other coaches. He did get to see plenty of familiar faces out on the field though. "I saw a lot of people from Detroit area making plays like James Ross, Royce Jenkins-Stone was playing, Devin Funchess, Devin Gardner, so it was pretty sweet, pretty cool that guys I knew were playing at a higher level in college football and making big plays." More visits are likely on tap for Campbell this season, including heading back to East Lansing and Ann Arbor, two places he's already been. "Well, I went to the Michigan State game last week and I'll definitely go back to Michigan and Michigan State, and hopefully go to Ohio State." As the process rolls along, Campbell will have to decide if he wants to stick closer to home or explore options he's likely to have outside the state and region, and he says his parents will also have to come to some sort of resolution on the distance factor. "Well, my mom, she really wants me to stay close to home, but my dad wants me to go see what else is out there, away from home. Really to me, I just want to find a school that fits me and so, some people want me to stay, some want me to go, but I'm just trying to find a school that will fit me in the program." Cass Tech and Campbell, currently 3-0, take on Detroit Cody this week.
