Rivals250 offensive tackle Bruce Campbell out of New Haven (Conn.) Hyde Leadership took his third official visit of the season last weekend to Michigan State. What did the 6-foot-7, 272-pounder think of the Spartans?
"I liked my visit there a lot," he said. "The campus was a lot bigger than I thought and it was really nice. I got there on Friday and really didn't do that much. I just checked out the campus, saw the academics and chilled with some of the players. I was hosted by Ross Weaver. He's a cool and funny guy. I also got to spend some time with John L. Smith and that was good, he mostly told me how they'd use me which is as a defensive end. That's fine with me, it doesn't matter.
"The problem with the visit was that there really wasn't anyone there because they were on Christmas break, so I didn't get really get a feel for the campus, environment and population. I'd say that kind of hurt them."
Despite going there during break, the four-star prospect rated his trip to Michigan State an eight.
"I still had a good time. It's really hard to compare this visit with my ones to Virginia and Nebraska because they are all different, but I can say I do like all the coaches."
Campbell is scheduled to take his final official visit on January 13th to Maryland.
"I don't really know what to expect, I just hope to have a good time," he said. "I like their coaches including my recruiter, coach Sollazzo. He's a pretty good guy."
