LSU is in need of an offensive lineman to add to the roster this offseason, and now a 5-star has locked in his commitment after other colleges pressed to get him flipped away from the Tigers.
On Saturday afternoon, Louisiana five-star offensive tackle Will Campbell took to social media with a clear message to LSU fans.
“Contrary to some reports, I have not had any thoughts on de-committing from LSU,” Campbell said. “I am 100% locked in and look forward to enrolling in January
“Coach O, Coach Davis and Coach Mason have treated me and my family like one of their own throughout the process. I can’t wait to bring a National Championship back to Baton Rouge.”
Campbell is one of 15 commitments on board for LSU’s 2021 recruiting class, which currently ranks inside the Top 10 nationally and No. 3 in the SEC.
In July, the No. 1 prospect in Louisiana on 247Sports slid up even higher in the rankings, climbing to No. 41 overall in the country and to the No. 5 offensive tackle in America. He’s the No. 24 overall prospect in the nation, No. 4 offensive tackle nationally and No. 2 prospect in Louisiana, according to the industry-generated 247Sports Composite.
“It was good,” Campbell said. “Just being chill, laid back, and being able to hang out with some of the guys before everything shut down. I talked with Quency the most out of the guys who weren’t committed than all of the committed guys. I didn’t say anything in particular, he already knows everything he needs to, just really being around him, talking about stuff other than football, and building a relationship. That’s more important than asking him where he’s going. Just being able to hang out around everyone and just chill was awesome.
Here’s the evaluation on what Campbell brings to the field:
“Tall with above average length. Wears his mass well and owns terrific frame potential. Active feet set up contact and foster drive-blocking effectiveness. Flashes some nasty as a block-finisher and will take targets to the ground if possible. Displays encouraging movement ability in space that reflects in second-level efficiency. Reaches those second-level targets with relative ease. Combines functional mobility and strength as consistently effective reach-blocker. Arriving impact improved as a junior and also showed in flashes at point of attack. Owns a high ceiling as a pass-blocker thanks to frame and above-average foot quickness. Generally does not allow naturally high center of gravity negatively affect pad level and leverage. Consistency as a puncher can still improve. Also can trust his frame/reach more in initial extension, especially in pass pro. Looks to be among the top 2022 offensive tackle prospects. Projects to high-major level with long-term potential to reach the early rounds of the NFL Draft.”
