Recruiting: Campbell Made Himself Prospect

Offensive lineman Daniel Campbell of Aldine, Texas is about as enthusiastic a prospect as you can run across. The impressive thing about the 6-4 1/2, 320-pound offensive lineman is that he is showing through his work habits how bad he wants to succeed at the college level.

Campbell has worked on getting his weight down going from an estimated 340 to 350 pounds, to weighing in at 320 last Sunday at the Scout combine at Valley Ranch, Texas.

"Yes sir, I've worked hard and I have to do that," said Campbell. "I have to show everybody how determined I am and that I do want to make it in college."

Count a number of schools as being convinced. Campbell made the All-Combine Team last Sunday, and according to the big offensive lineman the offers are pouring in. He told us that Kansas State, Kansas, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Houston, Florida, BYU, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Arizona, LSU, USC (his number one right now), Minnesota, Georgia, Missouri, and Purdue have all offered.

"I am not going to make any early decisions," said Campbell. "I am going to make my decision on the last possible day and I am going to take all my visits. I will take it to the end and right now I am considering everybody."

Campbell, who has a bench press maximum of 320 pounds and can max at 530 on the squat, said Oklahoma State would be in his top five along with USC, LSU, Oklahoma, and possibly Texas or Texas A&M. However, the door is open to everybody. He did take in junior day at LSU, but that was all he made it to and he is eager to check out other schools.

Campbell is a pile driver of a run blocker and has the athleticism to be a good pass protector. Hard work is no problem and has proven that with the work on his weight. Here is a prospect that is truly getting the attention he deserves and he gives you the indication that he likes people and will enjoy going through the recruiting process.
