Ohio State recruiting: 2016 DB Roderick Campbell talks Buckeyes, camp

Student Sports

See what the Missouri native had to say about his experience at Sunday's OSU camp, and more.

Over the weekend, Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes started their camp season off with a bang. One of the many talented prospects in attendance on Sunday was class of 2016 defensive back Roderick Campbell, of Chaminade College Preparatory School in St. Louis, Missouri.

"The Ohio State camp was nice. I got a chance to see how intense the University is, and the emphasis put on winning," the 5"11, 170-pound junior told Land-Grant Holy Land.

"I think I performed great. All of my defensive back drills and one of ones, were good as well. I talked to a couple of coaches, too. They said that I have good technique, and like the way I react to the ball," he added on his time at the OSU camp.

Campbell hopes he showed Ohio State enough on Sunday to receive some more interest in the coming weeks, and maybe even add a scholarship offer from the Buckeye coaching staff to his list that currently consists of Indiana, and Kentucky.

"It would mean a lot to receive an offer from OSU because I've always wanted to play there," Roderick, who will attend Notre Dame's Irish Invasion on the 20th, stated. "When I think of the program and Urban Meyer, especially after hearing him speak the other day, I think of excellence. I think of winning. I think of everything it takes to succeed and be the best."

A very solid athlete at the high school level, Roderick, displays decent ball skills and vision. His 48 tackles, team leading eight interceptions, and five pass breakups were a key reason why he was selected first team All-Metro Catholic, and also second team Missouri Class 5A all-state as a sophomore.

Take a few moments to watch these highlights of Roderick Campbell from last season:
