My good friend is his OL coach at DP. Says the guy is a beast and 100% to Miami. In fact, he is a big advocate for Richt and Miami and I would expect a few more guys to come from DP in the future.

I like how he finishes. You can't see that in a camp.

Big upside once he gets stronger.

I take kids like this all day. Not nearly a finished product or a kid ready to play right away..but when he puts it together ,adds some strength by year 2 your cooking. Same level player as Herbert. Keep stacking those types on the ol

100% agreed! Neither guy is likely done growing either. Campbell is gonna be massive, I believe he said on Twitter he is already in a size 16 cleat. Could be 315 and lean! As of now it looks like he could play either OT position as well

Reminds me of Morgan Moses. Massive frame, just enormous, but the way he carries it is really lean and solid.

Long arms, waist bender, huge feet, tree trunk legs. He needs a lot of coaching, really all the way from the ground up, but the tools are there to be a premium level player once he gets stronger and learns to use his legs and not completely rely on his massive size to dominate smaller players.

The thing that sets him apart from similar prospects is the way he finishes. I'm not a fan of the athletic marvels who mirror and shield in high school but never knock anyone on their ass. If you don't finish well and play nasty and mean, I'm not interested in you for the OL. It's why I loved Corey Gaynor for two years, and it's why I have some pause with Herbert.

Can't teach the size and mindset he plays with. Off a two minute highlight tape I believe this is a really good take.
