Lee-Campbell Enjoys TCU Visit

Spring, TX quarterback Darius Lee-Campbell has six offers on the table. What's the latest with TCU?

Spring, TX signal caller Darius Lee-Campbell has seen his recruitment increase in recent weeks and is up to six offers. Colorado, Utah, Louisiana, Rice, Texas State and TCU have verbally offered the 6-foot-2, 200-pounder. Others such as Texas A&M are showing him strong interest.

Lee-Campbell has made visits to A&M, Rice and most recently TCU. The visit to Ft. Worth was an eye-opener for him, especially considering that he wasn't very high on the Frogs prior to his visit. That of course all changed once he left the campus.

"I liked it a lot, before I went on the visit I kind of had an interest in them because they've been doing good the last couple of years but I never really showed any interest in them," he said. "But when I went on the campus I liked the campus and all of the coaches were cool. I like them a lot right now.

"I liked the coaches attitude toward practice, it wasn't just everything was business; they were making business and having fun at the same time. That's basically what I want to do when I get to college, I don't want to go somewhere that they're just having fun at practice and lose on Saturdays, but I don't want to go somewhere it's all business and no one is having fun at the end of the season."

As a dual-threat quarterback, Lee-Campbell has made it known that he'd like to play the position at the collegiate level. In TCU's case, the Frogs like his athletic ability to make plays regardless of his position.

"As of right now they're just basically waiting to come see me during the spring to determine whether they're going to evaluate me as a quarterback or as an athlete," he said.

The Frogs already have two of the top quarterbacks in the country committed in their 2014 class; Foster Sawyer who sits at No. 14 in the nation while Grayson Muehlstein comes in at No. 27. However, that hasn't deterred Lee-Campbell from considering the Frogs.

"I want to play quarterback so it's a big deal for me on deciding where I want to go play," Campbell-Lee said. "I'm still looking at other teams but TCU is still favorable, signing two other quarterbacks doesn't bother me."

At the moment Lee-Campbell says everyone program is even; simply because each has a good reputation at his desired major and each run a similar offense that he sees himself fitting in best.

"I'm pretty even with everyone, I have to talk with my family and decide exactly what my selling points are," he said. "Every school that I've talked to so far are all pretty good in engineering and that's what I want to major in so they're all even on that. They all run a similar type offense that I want to run in college so they're also even on that. It's just how I fit in on campus, that's basically what I'm going to go on."

Throughout the process Lee-Campbell has maintained that he would like to make his college choice after his senior season. However, that appears to have changed in the last couple of weeks.

"If you would've asked me a couple of weeks ago I would've told you I wouldn't commit until after the season. But, after talking to some of my coaches they said it would be wise for me to commit before the season starts that way I can just go into the season and not have to worry about it," he said. "I don't know what I'm going to do yet."
