RECRUITING BRIEF: Wayne Campbell
While you can find out just so much about watching film on an athlete or talking to him on the phone, there is a major advantage to seeing the athlete live. I have been fortunate to see more high school football players in person in the state of Florida than any other source.
What I will do is use my 30 plus years of evaluating talent on the football field to give up a complete opinion on the top football players in the Class of 2005.
I hope you enjoy this rare look into the football players in the state from a firsthand:
PLAYER: Wayne Campbell.
SCHOOL: Punta Gorda Charlotte
www.floridakids.us PRE-SPRING RATING: Not Rated.
THE SCOOP ON THIS FLORIDA KID: One of the toughest things to do in high school is come in right after one of the top players in school history, Justin Midgett, graduates and maintain the success. Wayne did that a year ago.
EVALUATION: "While the names Carlton Hill, Harrison Beck, Mike Greco, Alex Thompson, Paul McCall and others have echoed throughout the state, I will give you another one to keep an eye on.
A very gifted football player who has arm strength (short, intermediate and long) and the ability to run the ball. He shines at all the camps and combines he has been invited to. This is a true "sleeper" who is just starting to wake up for the Tarpons!"
THE INSIDE STORY: Last September 19, Campbell's father, Wayne Sr., tragically passed away. Campbell, a role model for many, especially his son, was a standout lineman at Florida A&M University and a coach at Tuskegee University. He was on staff at Charlotte High, so this senior season means a lot to Wayne Jr. as the memory of his father lives on!
