Former Spruce Creek LB Jeremy Campbell is now set to begin his college career. Speaking with CUTigers.com earlier this week, Campbell said that he planned on arriving in Tigertown on July 4th.

"My plans for the 4th just include driving up to Clemson. I will have orientation on the 5th and 6th," he said. "My dad, step mom and two brothers will be coming. My dad came up with me for a visit, but it will be new for the other three. It will be exciting for them."

Like most of the incoming freshmen, Campbell has been following the workout program given to him by the Clemson coaching staff.

"The workouts have been going good," he said. "I am about 210. I didn't want to get too big before I came up. They have been telling me to keep up the hard work.

"Everyone is excited about me and this whole recruiting class. Hopefully the guys come all come in and we get some good chemistry going together."

Campbell also already knows his roommate situation.

"I will be rooming with Crezdon (Butler) and Byron (Maxwell). Byron will be coming in August but I have talked some with Crezdon. He seems like a really good person," Campbell said.

What is he looking forward to the most about getting to Clemson? "I am just excited about being around a different group of guys," Campbell responded. "I'll miss being around my teammates and being out there playing. I am just ready to put the pads on and get back on the field."

"I want to play. I don't want to sit the bench. If I can come in and help in any way possible I plan on doing that. I have done everything in my power to be prepared to play. If the opportunity presents itself I want to be ready to take it."

What else was Campbell up to before leaving Spruce Creek? "Just been hanging out with my friends," he said. "Most of my friends are athletes and also going away to school. We have been saying our goodbyes."

As a senior, Campbell recorded 90 tackles including 14 tackles for loss and seven sacks on defense. He also had over 500 yards of total offense and five touchdowns.

He signed with Clemson this past February over offers from Georgia Tech, Illinois, Purdue, Kansas, Louisville and Indiana.
