RECRUITING: Distance a factor for Connecticutt OL?

Hamden, Conn. offensive lineman Bruce Campbell update.


Bruce Campbell is one of the most athletic offensive tackles that you will find in the high school ranks. His athletic ability makes him an outstanding pass blocker, and he is not bad exploding off the blocks either.

Campbell will be a three-year starter this year at right offensive tackle and defensive end, and he loves the fact that right now he gets to go both ways.

"I enjoying hitting on every play. That is why I love going both ways" said Campbell. "I know in college I need to get bigger, faster and stronger and concentrate on one position, but right now going both ways is fun for me."

Campbell can bench 335 pounds, squats 400 and he starts in hoops averaging 16 points and 12 rebounds a game.

Campbell attended the Elite Combine in New Jersey and he wasn't happy with his performance. Campbell recently took an unofficial visit to Maryland and he hopes to do the same at Virginia and North Carolina.

Campbell is a very unassuming guy in that he does not worry about his stats and he doesn't keep track of how many schools have offered him, but he knows there are a lot.

"It is too early in recruiting to have favorites unless you just like one school, and I don't at this point," said Campbell. "I am looking at a lot of schools like Florida, Virginia, and I have been offered by Oklahoma.

"Oklahoma is kind of far, but they are a great program. Right now I am looking to play close to home, but Oklahoma is a school that I still might consider."

Campbell has his GPA, but has yet to take his ACT.
