Western Carolina was able to beat out Charleston Southern for Campbell’s services. He visited Cullowhee, NC back on April 2nd and was offered by the Catamounts on April 12, making them his first division one offer.
The pulling offensive guard talked about how it feels to be finally committed to a college. “Feels great to be committed to Western Carolina. Loved WCU from the first time I visited. Feels good to focus on my senior season too.”
As we mentioned earlier, Campbell is no stranger to the Western Carolina campus. There were a lot of factors going into his decision and Campbell emphatically explained why the Catamounts received his commitment.
“I visited WCU several times in the last year and a half, have a good relationship with their coaches, and it’s a great fit for me. They have the Environmental Sciences program I want to study, a special North Carolina mountain campus/environment, and are continuing to build a SoCon level championship football program…and I want to be a part of it!”
The Western Carolina staff likes his versatility to play either offensive guard or center at the next level. When asked if he had a preference, the Mill Creek student-athlete replied, “I plan on competing for both guard and center but I’ll play wherever I’m asked.”
Campbell was winner of our 2/28 Play of the Day earlier this year on a crushing block from last season. Watch his film and you will quickly become impressed with his intensity. He has a terrific motor, often times after completing one block, he goes after another defender without any hesitation.
Mill Creek is returning a lot of key starters from last year’s state semifinalist team who lost to eventual state champions Colquitt Co. Campbell was an integral part of that team last year on the offensive line, which we have considered to be one of the best offensive lines in Georgia.
With another important season looming, Campbell spoke about his excitement. “I’m very excited about Mill Creek this season. Many of us seniors have played together since little league football. We have a lot of talent returning and want to finish what we started last year.”
