The William Campbell recruitment is the reason the letters W, T, and F were invented. A couple days ago, Campbell publicly eliminates (or near-eliminates) Michigan after months of foregone conclusion-hood. WTF?!?!?
Numerous sources have confirmed that Michigan is still in the picture for Campbell and will be one of the candidates for his pledge on Saturday. One source went as far as saying that he felt Campbell would certainly re-commit to Michigan, noting the big defensive tackle's sense of humor and tendency to joke around.
Meanwhile, the inbox says this:
Friend at Miami says his sources tell him they think Will is all theirs.
Source at USC says TJ McDonald reported to the USC staff (who have been absolutely confused by Will during their recruitment of him) that Will Campbell was making up all the dropping Michigan stuff. After I relayed this to my friend at Miami he was very unconfident about the Will to Miami report, so that probably isn’t a strong rumor.
He [Campbell] told TJ [McDonald] he was just f---ing around.
Who is this? Read on. –ed.]
Worldofx is a legitimate contact for recruiting and has consistent dialogue with USC staff and works at the USC and Rivals SoCal combines. I recommend you join the message board for his recruiting information (www.fvsports.com)
What is known is this: Will Campbell was an unofficial visitor to every Michigan home game, even though he de-committed after the Utah game. Cissoko, Gordon, and Jones are all Cass Tech team mates and there was talk during the season of Will “joining his team mates.” And that there is a Will Campbell on the winter enrollment list.
And on yesterday's WTKA recruiting roundup, Andre Barthwell of GBW said he's still going to Michigan. WTF, and hurray.
But wait. What if the failure of Campbell's hypothetically attempted ruse drives him mad with anger and he actually does pick somewhere else just to prove you can't predict what William Campbell is going to do? Arrrrgh!
Here's a picture of an otter with a beer.
Under no circumstances should Will Campbell be informed he is mentioned in this post, which is about otters.
