Peach State comes calling for MD backer

Linebacker Devonte Campbell added two new scholarships in the last couple days from the Peach State. The 6-foot-2, 216-pounder out of Forestville, Md. was thrilled to get the offers after solid performances at the Elite College Combine and Nike Camp at Penn State.
"My coach told me today that I got the offers from Georgia and Georgia Tech," he said. "Both of those are big offers and I'm still taking the process day by day.
"From what I've seen about both of those schools they have pretty good programs and are down south where it's hot. That definitely interests me and I wouldn't say it is too far away from home. I'm cool with traveling. I got to talk to coaches from both schools already and Georgia Tech seems to have a real need at tight end, while Georgia sees me as a bubble players that could be a tight end or linebacker in college."
Pitt has also offered him recently.
"My coach told me that it's on its way," he said. "That's a program I'd like to learn more about."
Last week the Maryland native enjoyed taking in two of the countries top combines.
"They were both real good and I was pleased with how I performed at them," he said. "I felt I showed the coaches there that I should be a top player in the country because I have great hands, speed and explosiveness."
Currently Campbell is up to nine scholarship offers, but expects more to come soon.
"I think Ohio State, Virginia Tech and Notre Dame are very close to offering," he said. "I know Notre Dame wants to see a little more film of me on defense, while Virginia Tech just has to run my highlight film past Frank Beamer. Meanwhile, Ohio State should be offering real soon."
Campbell still claims he has no favorites, but expects to start narrowing down his list in anticipation of a decision real soon.
"All the schools are pretty much equal to me and I'm happy with everybody that is taking an interest," he stated. "Once I get around 15 offers I'll start narrowing my list down in hopes that I can make a decision probably sometime this summer. I'd really like to get it done in June because in July and August I begin to focus on my season and I'm looking to take our team to a state championship."
