  • Campbell talked about Mississippi State's Big Dawg Camp.

    "It was nice and my first time to attend it," he said. "I did very well considering that I haven't been to a camp since I went to Alabama June 1st. But I did really well."

    He was impressed with the support that the current Mississippi State players showed during the camp.

    "There was a lot of love shown tonight by their players," said Campbell. "They didn't have to be here. That showed me that they are really into trying to get us here. Everybody out there was saying come on to State."

    One MSU player showed him a lot of special attention during the camp.

    "I talked to Chris Jones during the camp," said Campbell. "He said I have really good hands and that I move them really well. He said I just need to move my hips a little bit more and I will be great."

    Campbell left the Mississippi State camp very high on the Bulldogs.

    "I feel the same about them as I always have, I love them," he said. "They are people like me, country people. I love them. It's a really special place."

    Mississippi State is one of nine colleges that have offered him a scholarship.

    "I have offers from Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Alabama, Oklahoma, Cal, Louisiana Lafayette, Alcorn State, Missouri and Kentucky," said Campbell.

    Campbell is surprise by all the offers that he has received.

    "I didn't think any of this would happen," said Campbell. "My plan was to turn 17-years-old, get out of high school and become a Navy Seal. I still may become a Navy Seal after football is over."

    Keep it on and as we continue to follow the recruitment of this very talented member of the class of 2015.
