LSU leads for Campbell

With two offensive linemen already in the books for the 2008 recruiting class, LSU is at the top of the list to get a third one in offensive lineman Daniel Campbell out of Adline, Texas.

The 6-6, 320-pound Campbell was voted to the first team all-district last season and said he credits his quick feet for his ability to prevent on- coming defenders from flattening his quarterback.


"My pass blocking is really my strong suit," said Campbell. "I'd say I'm a good pass blocker because of my quick feet and ability to read defenses."


So far, Campbell has received offers from LSU, Texas A&M, Texas, BYU, Baylor, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and a few other schools.


"Right now LSU stands out and I'd say they are my first choice right now," said Campbell. "The offensive line program they have there and coaches are real good. I also like the type of offense they run."


Campbell was able to experience LSU first hand this past weekend when he attended Junior Day.


"It was a real nice experience," said Campbell. "I liked the campus and everything about it was just real nice. I found out more about the education I would be getting if I went there. I found out more about academics than anything and what the school was really about."


Campbell was also able to chat with coach Les Miles and linebackers coach Bradley Dale Peveto, who is in charge of recruiting the big Texan.


"Coach Peveto was a real nice guy and I got a chance to know him better at Junior Day," said Campbell. "Coach Les Miles wanted me to come into his office and talk with him, and that was pretty special. He just told me I should get used to the campus and what would be required academic wise."


Although Campbell said LSU is his No. 1 school at this point, though, he won't be making any decisions any time soon.


"I was thinking about committing while I was there, but I still have so many other visits to take," he said. "I didn't want to lead them on. It felt like they really wanted me to be there, so right now they're my number one."
