Campbell Gets Some Attention From Cowboys

Quarterbacks are always going to make headlines. Another quarterback name has come up in connection with the 2013 class. Will Campbell of Frisco (Lone Star), Texas helped his team start the season 3-2 last season by completing 60 percent of his passes for 935 yards with seven touchdowns and six interceptions. But in the sixth game he broke his ankle and Lone Star finished by going just 1-4.

Campbell is 6-3 1/2 and 197 pounds and shows up well in his tape. He is a good size quarterback that can fire the ball around. Oklahoma State has recently come in contact with him.

"I spoke with Coach (Johnny) Barr (recruiting coordinator) on Friday morning, and we were talking about a good time for me to come to spring practice and meet with the coaches," said Campbell. "We decided on March 30, that's a Friday."

Campbell has heard thus far from four other schools.

"I was at Mississippi's junior day a couple of weekends ago," he said. "I have heard from Arkansas, Louisiana-Monroe, and North Texas too. I've heard from Coach Petrino (Arkansas).

Campbell started out at another Frisco high school as a freshman and then moved to Lone Star when it opened, and he had his baptism into varsity football in Class 3A with the Rangers.

He said he has always been a fan of schools in the Big 12 and the SEC.

"I'm looking for a school that throws the ball around and is aggressive about throwing," said Campbell. "I'm looking for a good campus and a team that every week is competing to win. I'm not sure about what I want to study, but I know when I am through playing football that I want to coach."

Campbell said he has also heard from Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Todd Monken, who told him he liked what he saw of Campbell on tape.
