Previous Visitor To Auburn Says The Tigers Lead

A report is featured on a football prospect who visited the Tigers earlier in January.

Hialeah, Fla.--Three visits are in the books and there is one to go before speedy Anthony Campbell is ready to make his decision on where he wants to play college football.

On Sunday the two-way threat from Hialeah High returned from his visit to Rutgers and says that it went well. "It was straight," he says.

However, with trips to Ole Miss and Auburn already completed, he notes that he has a favorite going into his final visit, a road trip to Memphis on Friday. "Auburn is my leader, but I am going to take all of my visits before I make a decision," he says.

Campbell was in Auburn the previous week and says that he enjoyed the trip where his host was Patrick Lee, another Miami area football standout that he had played against in high school.

Anthony Campbell

A speedy running back, defensive back and kick returner for Hialeah, Campbell rushed for 1,092 yards as a senior and returned four kickoffs for touchdowns. He totaled 17 touchdowns as a senior and finished his high school senior season with nearly 4,000 career total rushing yards as a three-year starter at tailback, who saw his first varsity action as a freshman.

He ran a 40-yard dash time of 4.38 at an Auburn football camp and had a 30 1/2-inch vertical jump. His coach, Glenn Maoiolini, says that Campbell ran a 4.32 at a combine held last year at the home base for the NFL's Miami Dolphins.

"Anthony has turned down a lot of offers from Big Ten schools because he isn't interested in going up there," says. Maoilini adds, "He is being recruited by colleges as a defensive back and a running back."
