Four-star tight end Devonte Campbell made the trip to Syracuse this weekend for his third official visit. The 6-foot-1, 234-pounder out of Forestville, Md. enjoyed the trip, but was it enough to keep the Orangemen in his top four?
"My official was pretty good. I'd say it was better than I thought it was going to be," he said. "This official was the same deal as the others. I chilled with the players, ate more than I should have and just got a feel for day to day life at the university."
Campbell was hosted on the trip by Nico Scott.
"He was pretty cool, he showed me around the school," he said. "He even talked about how I'd have a good chance of playing early, that's definitely a positive."
As far as the coaches, the No. 16 tight end in the country met with many of them.
"I was able to talk to Brian White, Chris White and Greg Robinson," he said. "They were very nice and explained to me the whole West Coast offense which is basically what the Broncos use. They also showed how they utilize two and three tight ends. I was very impressed with the whole offensive scheme and how well they use their tight ends.
"I also got to talk with coach Robinson for a little while. He was pretty cool. He talked about his experiences in the league and at Texas."
Though Campbell was impressed with the coaches and offense, he only rated the trip a seven.
"For the most part it is freezing up there," he said. "The campus also wasn't as live as other ones I've been to, but the offense fits me. I wouldn't say they are further down my list at all, all four schools are still even for me."
Next up is the No. 3 Maryland prospect's final official to Tennessee.
"I just want to go there and see the SEC," he said. "I want to find out how they run things there and stuff like that."
Campbell expects to make a decision soon after his trip next week to Knoxville.
