Cards continue pursuit of LB Jeremy Campbell

At 6-foot-2, 210-pounds, Jeremy Campbell is the type of defensive prospect that can play a number of positions on the college level.

The coaching staffs at Louisville, Duke, Illinois and others have already extended scholarships, while a host of others throughout the region are expressing heavy interest in the Spruce Creek (FL) High School athlete.

"I don't get into all of the recruiting stuff much," Campbell told "My dad is taking care of all that right now. He is keeping everything right now, so I'm not even sure how many offers I have yet."

As a junior, Campbell totaled 43 tackles, including 3 sacks playing in his team's secondary.

"Everybody's talking about me playing inside linebacker or strong safety," he explained. "I don't mind playing either position as long as I get to play."

Also a standout on the hardwood, who averaged a double-double and established a few new school records, Campbell says he is focused on just playing football on the collegiate level.

"I'm going to play football - I'm strictly focused on playing football," he said.

With hopes of making a few unofficial visits over the course of the next few weeks, Campbell says that he'll start paying attention to what opportunities are available soon.

"I'll sit down with my Dad in late July to go over everything. I'm won't necessarily wait to take all my official visits - I could decide before my season starts."

While he adds that potential early playing time and his relationship with the coaches will play a role in his decision, he said that finding a school where he can focus on his major of choice will be important.

"My education is important," said Campbell, who currently holds a 3.6 GPA. "I'll probably major in business and I know that Louisville has a great business program."
