Cards extend offer to Florida linebacker

Spruce Creek (FL) High School's Jeremy Campbell has already collected three scholarship offers and the linebacker/safety prospect told Inside The Ville that Louisville is among the trio.

Jeremy Campbell is a name that many aren't familiar with at this point in the recruiting season, but the Spruce Creek linebacker/safety prospect is well known by many of the coaches throughout the region.

"I hear the most from Purdue, Illinois and Louisville, said the 6-foot-2, 210-pound Campbell. "Those three have offered me and I also hear from Indiana, Marshall, Maryland and Duke."

Playing in his team's secondary as a junior, Campbell recorded 43 tackles, including 3 sacks, helping his team reach the quarterfinals of the state playoffs.

"Most of them are recruiting me as a rover type linebacker or maybe strong safety," he said. "I don't mind playing either one...I can do both."

However, Campbell, who doesn't plan on attending any camps in June, is taking the recruiting process in stride and admits that he will need to do more research before narrowing his list of schools.

"I haven't thought about it that much yet," he explained. "I don't know that much about any of the schools yet, so I'll sit down with my dad eventually to make a shorter list."

While he has yet to begin the process of elimination, Campbell does know what qualities that he will be looking for when considering each scholarship offer.

"I want to make sure education comes first," Campbell said. "Getting my education is something that is important to me and I want to check to see how each school performs in what I want to major in. I'm thinking of going to business school."

"I also want to see what type of tradition they have both on and off the field and how the coaches treat the players."

The depth chart is also another factor that will likely play role when decision time nears.

"I want to find out how soon I'd get on the field to play," he continued. "If I could play as a true freshman that would be great, but redshirting wouldn't bother me."

Campbell was also a Class 6A honorable mention All-State selection in basketball as a junior.
