"I had a chance to travel to North Dakota State for their spring game this past weekend," Hopkins (Minn.) running back Deyon Campbell explained to the BisonReport. "The campus there was beautiful. I love the facilities too, plus I'm eager to get back down there to see their brand new facility that they are putting in. The current facilities were nice. They were filled with Bison gear and material and the new facility they are putting in is huge. The Fargodome is big too. When I arrived fans were tailgating, and playing games and things. The Fargodome is beautiful stadium. Watching their spring game was fun as the fans were fired up. The players look good and have a lot of talent this year."
Campbell also had a lot to talk about with the North Dakota State coaches.
"I talked with coach Polasek, coach Entz and the head coach, coach Klieman," Campbell said to the BisonReport. "Polasek was telling me how much of a impact I would be at running back or a slot player, and that I am a versatile player who can make plays. Entz and I were just having a genuine conversation. Like small talk, but he is excited to come see me workout today. Klieman and I had long a conversation about me and just to build a relationship. At the end of the conversation, he offered me a full scholarship. We are hoping to meet each other again soon. He said they wanted to offer me because of the things I can do with the ball in my hands are amazing. They offer is at running back, but they would also utilize me as a slot receiver as well."
North Dakota State is an important offer for the Hopkins playmaker.
"The Bison are my biggest offer yet," Campbell told the BisonReport. "I am truly blessed to be offered by the FCS champs. Hopefully this gets other schools attention, but I love their staff and the system. So this is huge offer for me and I am thankful. They on very high on my interest level and out of all my offers, they are at the top. They're at the top because of the amount of NFL players they produce, their coaching staff, the campus and the community itself. Even though I haven't had a chance to visit Wyoming, NDSU is at the top until then."
More visits and camps are on the horizon for Campbell this spring and summer.
"I plan on getting to UNI sometime soon, but other than that, no other schools I'm plan on visiting at this time. I am going to the Opening Regional in Chicago and then to Minnesota's camp in the summer. I don't know about any others, but I plan on going to two more. Malik Lofton and I have talked about being a package deal for a long time, and I know we both have NDSU offer. I'm looking at making a decision in mid-November."
