All class of 2015 quarterback Jayru Campbell has done in his two years under center for Detroit Cass Tech is deliver two state championships. That type of production out of a sophomore has not gone unnoticed and the 6-foot-3, 187-pound passer has drawn plenty of attention from college coaches this winter.
"Michigan State brought a bunch of their coaching staff in [Wednesday]," Campbell said.
Included among the contingent of Spartans coaches was head coach Mark Dantonio, who had news for Campbell, as well as fellow Cass Tech sophomores Mike Weber and Joshua Alabi, before he left.
"He said he watched all three of our highlight tapes and he wanted to offer all three of us scholarships," Campbell said.
Two of Campbell's Cass Tech teammates - senior offensive tackle Dennis Finley and junior linebacker Deon Drake - are currently committed to Michigan State and Campbell is already being courted to join them in East Lansing.
"Me and Dennis have a real good relationship," Campbell said. "He has been blocking for me for two years, and we are real cool. We are always talking about colleges, so he was really excited when I got the offer."
Campbell said he does not need any coaxing to check out the Spartans. In fact, he has already made recruiting visits to their campus.
"I went to their first game of the season. It was under the lights and a night game and I was real impressed," he said. "I really liked the facility, the football field and the fans were really into the game. It seems like it would be fun playing up there in East Lansing, so they will always be one of the teams that will be on my list when it comes down to making my decision."
For Campbell, the offer from Michigan State was his third of the recruiting process. He picked up offers from Alabama and Notre Dame after camps at both schools this past summer.
"The last time I talked to Notre Dame was right before the National Championship Game," Campbell said. "Coach [Chuck] Martin and Coach Brian Kelly both came up to Cass and I talked to them for a minute.
"The last time I talked to Alabama I want to say was in December. We will be going down there for a 7-on-7 tournament like we did last year."
A constant stream of coaches have made their way through Cass Tech in the last couple months. Illinois and Ohio State were two schools Campbell particularly noted showing strong interest in him.
"Ohio State wants to get me to a basketball or football game. I guess they want to show me the campus, and they have showed a lot of interest. Coach [Kerry] Coombs is the coach I normally see and he has been coming up there a lot lately. Every time he sees me he always says, 'You're getting bigger every time I see you.'"
This past season Campbell through for over 2,000 yards and more than 35 touchdowns for a Cass Tech team that won the Michigan Division I state championship.
