Jordan Campbell Profile "I was going to commit to Oregon last week, but I didn't. I had planned to wait until after the season, but my parents wanted me to commit before the season—which starts September 1—so that I can relax and focus on my senior year. But I kept thinking about it, and I still want to go to USC. The big issue is that USC is log-jammed with linebackers, so they are only recruiting me as a fullback," he said.
"Oregon wants me as a linebacker, and they will be losing a few linebackers by my freshman year, so I would have a chance to play early. It's a good Pac-10 school with a good program. I have no problem playing for Oregon," Campbell said.
"I'm going to visit USC this Wednesday (August 9) to watch a practice and talk to the coaches. I'm going to try to find out if there is any possibility at all for me to play as a linebacker there—even if it means I have to redshirt, or play fullback at first and switch to my position later. After all the camps I've been to and set my mind to goals and accomplished them, I have no doubt in my mind that I could go in and earn a spot. I wouldn't mind playing next to Chris Galippo (Scout.com's No.1 rated linebacker from Servite High School who is committed to USC). I just want to play what I've been trained. Even though USC throws the ball a lot to their fullback, I love defense because I love being a part of every play and hitting people.
"USC is my dream school, and if they will let me play my position, I will commit there. But if they don't, I'll most likely commit to Oregon. I'll know more about when and where I will commit after I've visited USC on Wednesday," he said.
Campbell reports a 2.7 core GPA and denies having yet received his June SAT, but said he intends to retake it anyway.
