SEBRING, Fla. - Mike Campbell was a starting offensive tackle for the victorious North squad in the FACA North-South All-Star Game on Wednesday evening. For the Pace (Fla.) product, he enjoyed having the chance to compete with and against some of the best in the state during the event.
"It is real challenging but I love it," Campbell said. "I like competing with all of these guys. Everyone was a real good sport about everything. It was a real fun time getting around all these guys from around Florida."
The 6-foot-6, 252-pound offensive lineman updated his recruitment after the game.
"It is still about the same," Campbell said. "It is mainly UCF."
Campbell has yet to make it to Orlando, Fla. for his official visit to see the Knights, but that will change in early January.
"I am going to get down there on an official I think on January 13th," Campbell said.
When he is on campus at Central Florida, he will spend a great deal of time with his primary recruiter while learning more about the Knights.
"I have been talking with Coach Brent Key," Campbell said. "He is a real cool guy. We have been talking a lot."
In addition to Central Florida, South Alabama has offered while Vanderbilt and Troy continue to show interest. Campbell though says that if everything goes well during his mid-January official visit to Central Florida that he will likely immediately pledge his services to George O'Leary and his staff.
"I think it is pretty likely," Campbell said of committing on the visit.
