Campbell set for weekend visit to Louisville

Spruce Creek (Fla.) High School linebacker Jeremy Campbell confirmed with Inside The Ville on Wednesday that he is set for his official visit to Louisville this weekend

While there likely won't be a long list of official visitors for Louisville's game against Rutgers on Friday, there will be a couple of highly sought after prospects in Papa John's Cardinal Stadium for the nationally televised contest.

Among the group will be Spruce Creek (Fla.) High School linebacker Jeremy Campbell, who confirmed with Inside The Ville that he will be making the trip north to the River City this weekend.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Campbell said on Wednesday that he's looking forward to meeting the current members of the No. 23 Cardinals squad.

"I want to interact with the players and see how the coaches act towards the players on the field and off the field," he said of his upcoming trip.

Campbell also said that he's looking forward to seeing U of L defensive coordinator Mike Cassity's attacking defense in person.

"I love their scheme and what they do with their backers and how they disguise their blitzes."

The trip to Louisville will be his third official visit, having already made stops with Clemson and Purdue.

"I went to Clemson and I really loved the atmosphere there and they treat the players there," he said. "I went to Purdue and I love what they are doing with their program. I love the education aspect of that school too. Each school has its pro's and con's."

While he said that his final two official visits remain open, it's likely that Indiana and Kansas will claim those open dates.

With his high school football career now behind him, Campbell has already suited up for basketball, which is set to begin early next week.

"Our first game is Monday," said Campbell, who is a member of his team's starting five. "I play the power forward spot."

Inside The Ville will follow up with Campbell following his return home on Sunday, but the early indication is that Campbell will wait until later this year before making a college decision.

"I want to take my time before I make my decision, so I can be sure I make the right choice," he said.
