Rivals250 offensive tackle Bruce Campbell out of New Haven (Conn.) Hyde Leadership took his first official of the season to Nebraska. The 6-foot-7, 272-pounder with 4.75-second speed was hosted by Bryan Benzel.
"He showed me around and showed me what it was like there on Friday and then Saturday I went to the game and after that we ate and went around town," he said. "I liked the atmosphere a lot with the red everywhere. I've always seen it on TV and it's really nice. It was loud and I knew it would be and that was nice too."
What stood out about Nebraska to Campbell?
"Everything was so shocking to me, it wasn't what I expected it to be," he said. "I think about Nebraska and I think cornfields, cows and country and it was the complete opposite. That was much better too, it was a lot different. I really liked how the people down there were so friendly and welcomed you."
The four-star prospect got to talk with players and coaches.
"I talked to coach Blake and he was funny and really outgoing about stuff, I got along with him really well," he said. "I also hung out with J.B. Phillips and Marlon Lucky and other guys. They all act like we act up here. We just have fun and chilld out, they were really cool."
The big question is, did the visit sway Campbell closer to committing to Nebraska?
"It did because I liked everything and it is so different down there, I never really expected it to be like that," he said. "I'd give it an 8.5 or 9, it wasn't a 10 because there's a lot to do around there, but not as much if I were to live there all year and not come home."
The No. 1 player in New England hasn't announced another official visit yet, but plans to take at least two more to his other favorites.
"I'm going to take officials to Maryland and Virginia," he said. "I'm still not sure if I'll take the last two, but if I do I'll go to Michigan State and Boston College."
This week the No. 10 offensive tackle in the country kicks off the season.
"I don't have any goals for myself this year, I'm just looking to go undefeated and repeat as conference and state champions."
