Campbell planning Washington visit

He played his first three years of high school football at Golden High in Golden, Colorado, but this year he switched to Overland High in Aurora, Colorado. It's no coincidence that DB Jared Campbell is a player that is on Washington's radar. He's friends with two Husky commits and another prospect they're also after.

"Me and Alvin (Logan) are pretty close friends," Campbell told recently. "I'm also friends with Drew Davis and Devin Aguilar so we all know each other."

Campbell played running back, cornerback and safety for the Trailblazers. He posted over 1,000 yards on the ground with 13 rushing touchdowns and had 60 tackles and two interceptions on defense.

"Alvin's team and my team scrimmaged against each other and it was fun because it was like little league days," Campbell said with a laugh. "He's fast so I had to prepare hard to play against him, but we went out there and had fun with it. It was cool."

On the recruiting front, Campbell has offers from Colorado, Washington, Wyoming, Colorado State and Utah and recently, Nebraska entered the fray for his services.

"Colorado and Washington are my favorites right now, but if Nebraska offered they would be right in it too," Campbell said. "I visited Colorado on November 4th when they played Kansas State and it was a lot of fun even though they lost.

"I'm taking a visit to Washington on December 8th and I'm really looking forward to getting up there to see what it's like. I really respect coach (Tyrone) Willingham and how he does things. He's trying to build a team the right way and he wants playmakers to get it done. He said that's why they like me."

Campbell will also visit Wyoming on December 1st.

The Huskies are recruiting Campbell as a corner in order to use his 4.45 speed, but he said he's willing to play safety if the need arises.

"I feel I could be successful anywhere I end up in the secondary," Campbell said. "If they like me at safety great, but I like being matched up on wideouts one-on-one and shutting them down."

We'll have more with Campbell after his visit to Washington in three weeks.
