Checking in with Campbell
Notre Dame has already offered a quarterback in the 2015 class, Jayru Campbell. Campbell, of Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech, went four years without losing in middle school. He most recently guided Cass Tech to back-to-back state championships as an underclassman. And, he'll still continue to mature physically as he fills out his 6-foot-3 , 175-pound frame. "He's still raw right now," Curtis Blackwell, Campbell's coach said. "He's still polishing his skills, but he can make every throw. In the pocket, out of the pocket – his arm strength is there. His growth will skyrocket this year." Campbell stays in touch with Notre Dame's offensive coordinator, Chuck Martin, and he believes a trip to Notre Dame could occur this spring. "I talk to Coach Martin about once or twice a month," Campbell said. "He's just telling me to keep working hard and keep elevating my game. Coach Martin is real cool. I'll probably take a spring visit to Notre Dame, but I'm not sure of any dates yet." The young signal caller says he kept up with the Irish's stellar 2012 season, and that Notre Dame is a place he could see himself considering as he continues with the recruiting process. "I really like Notre Dame's style of offense," Campbell said. "I watched a bunch of their games last season. Notre Dame's campus is so nice. It's definitely a place that I see being in the running." In addition to Campbell's four offers that include Alabama, Eastern Michigan, Michigan State, and Notre Dame, Campbell is hearing from a few other high profile programs. "I'm receiving heavy interest from Michigan and Ohio State," he said. "I'm also hearing from UCLA, Miami and Florida. I don't have any top schools right now, I'm just trying to enjoy the process." This spring, Campbell will compete in track, where he was all-city last year in the 300 hurdles. Campbell is visiting Michigan this weekend.
