Campbell has Gators on Short List

Four-star offensive linemen Daniel Campbell stands 6-6 and weighs 325-pounds. He is one of the most highly recruited offensive linemen in the state of Texas. Campbell, from Houston (Texas) Aldine High School has over 24 offers at this time but has a top three of Southern Cal, Florida and LSU.

"I am still talking to the Gators, but lately Coach Norton from Southern Cal has been coming on real strong," Daniel Campbell said.

He took time to talk a little about each of his top three favorites.

Southern Cal:
"Southern Cal is a great team and I think I would fit in real well with their offense and I like the offensive coach and I want to go somewhere I can win."

"Florida just won the national championship. Coach Mullen asked me what it would take to get me to Gainesville and I said not much, just win another BCS Title. Coach was laughing and then said, is that it. If they keep winning that might be my new home. I like the run/pass ratio that Florida has and the overall balance in which they run the offense. I am a good pass and run blocker. My strength right now is pass blocking. I am set either way. After my second game of the season I am heading down to the Swamp to watch Florida play Tennessee."

"LSU is in the Southeastern Conference and I don't know what it is about that league but it's a great conference. Florida just totally dogged Ohio State last year, I was watching the game and all I could say was wow. I was wondering how the game would have turned out if Florida would of played Southern Cal. I just like that league it's strong. I know that now with what Florida did to Ohio State."

My Take:
Daniel Campbell is one of the top players from the entire southwest and one of the top overall offensive linemen from the state of Texas. At this time, he has the Gators very high on his list. When asked what he likes about LSU he went back to the Gators. He will be one to keep a very close eye on. The Swamp is one of the most electric places in the entire country to be for a game, especially when Tennessee comes to town. This one could get very interesting.
