Offensive Lineman Commits to USC
"I already told Coach (Ken) Norton that I was giving USC my verbal commitment this week and am letting the rest of the staff know this weekend," Campbell said. "It really came down to USC and Florida in the end and I guess I just liked what USC had to offer a lot more in every area."
"One thing that was huge for me is that I wanted to be associated with a winning program and have a chance to be on top every year," Campbell stated. "USC has been winning national championships, playing in BCS bowls and pretty much dominating college football for a long time now and they also are bringing in excellent players on the offensive line this year like Matt Kalil, Matt Meyer and Tyron Smith, so I feel very comfortable with the direction of the program and feel I have the best chance to win playing there. It also came down to academics as USC is one of the top schools in the nation academically. I want to major in business with a focus in technology as a minor and feel I will receive a great education there."
While winning and academics were obviously big parts of his decision, Campbell also said the coaching staff and atmosphere at Southern Cal set the Trojans apart.
"The coaching staff at USC just gives you lots of attention and you can really tell they care about their players when you see them interact," Campbell explained. "Coach (Ken) Norton stays crunk twenty-four-seven and I really like that about him. He's just an excitable guy and really knows how to keep players fired up. I also just really love the atmosphere out there on campus because it is so laid back. The Coliseum is absolutely amazing and I just can't want for that day when I can feel the rush of what it's like to play in it when it is full."
Campbell becomes the tenth commitment for the Class of 2008 for USC and the fourth linemen to be rated at four stars or higher by Scout.com. He was named first-team All-District 19-5A as a junior and reports a 2.8 core GPA and 1050 SAT score.
