TN had the chance recently to catch up with Campbell and learn more about his recruitment:

You received an FSU offer in February. What’d that mean to you?

“Meant a lot.”

How did you find out about the offer?

“Coach Thomsen told me over the phone.”

How much have you spoken with Coach Thomsen, and what’s he like?

“[I] just got finished talking to him, actually—he’s great guy.”

So he’s somebody you could see yourself playing for in college?

“Yes, sir.”

FSU is light at TE. Is that a selling point for you, seeing as you could have a chance to come in and play early?

“Yes, sir it is.”

Are the Seminoles planning to take multiple tight ends this year?

“[I] haven’t been told that, but I’m sure.”

Do you have a visit planned/scheduled to Tallahassee?

“When the dead period is over, but not a specific [date].”

Have you started to narrow your list of schools?

“Yes, and FSU is one of them.”

What do you think of FSU’s uniforms?

“Amazing.”

Do you have a particular combo that stands out?

“I think the classic garnet on garnet and black on black.”

What number do you wear and why did you choose that number?

“No. 3 because I wasn’t able to get No. 2. I wanted No. 2 because my favorite player was Cam Newton, and he was 2 growing up so I chose the next thing up, and it’s been No. 3 ever since.”

How would you describe your style?

“A dynamic player who excels at every part of the position.”

Who are some players you model your game after?

David Njoku, Travis Kelce, and Zach Ertz.”

What are the key things you’re looking for when choosing a college?

“Comfortability, great relationships, great fit.”

And what do you plan to study in school?

“Business.”
