Toledo hosted another summer camp on Monday at La Salle High School located in Cincinnati, Ohio. A lot of prospects impressed the Toledo coaching staff during their time at the camp, but no other than 2017 Cincinnati (OH) DE/OLB Ethan Campell as he walked away with a Toledo offer.
“I was at the Toledo camp at Lasalle High School and the head coach said at the beginning of the camp that he's only offering one athlete,” Campell said. “I did very well in the pro shuttle running a 4.11 and in the 40-yard dash with back-to-back times of 4.55. They liked my height and weight of 6-foot-4, and 215-pounds. I won every single one-on-ones vs the offensive linemen. Then the defensive line coach took me down to the head coach and he said 'Ethan we're going to offer you', that really made my day. It's my first big offer, I couldn't be more excited about anything else this is the dream! Free education and more football!”
Campell has already heard a lot about the Toledo football program. His former teammate and 2016 Toledo signee, Luke Doerger, has already been recruiting Campell a little bit. In addition, showing Campell what Toledo is all about.
“Luke Doerger a very respectable person at Lasalle who just recently graduated is going to Toledo on a full scholarship as well. He is one of the brightest and wisest people I've met and with him choosing Toledo over the others I can't help but think it's nothing but the best.”
Toledo defensive line coach Brian George was very impressed with what Campell showed at the camp. As a result, George built a great relationship with Campell.
“He's a great guy. Very approachable and easy to talk to and gave me good tips. Just an all around good person. I also got to see Coach Candle, good guy as well again very approachable.”
The Toledo coaching staff is very eager to get Campell on campus, the plan is for him to visit Toledo this summer and for an official visit during the fall.
“Toledo is a school that I'd highly consider going to, but I've got time to think over what's happened and make an official visit to the school and see if it suits me. But it's a school Id like to go to. Within the next two weeks I plan to visit Toledo, I'm waiting to hear back from the head coach to when it would be best for me to do so.”
