Tales From the Road: Midwest QB's 

April, 17, 2013
Tales From the Road spotlights players who stand out to RecruitingNation writers at camps, combines and various events. Here is a look at a few Midwest prospects who recently performed at a high level:

QB Jayru Campbell
Vital Stats: 2015 / Detroit Cass Tech / 6-foot-3, 175 pounds

Considering: Offers from Alabama, Notre Dame, Michigan State and Eastern Michigan

Where we saw him: Over the past two seasons, I’ve seen Campbell take the field several times. In the first game of his freshman season, Campbell stepped in for the team's injured senior QB. What has followed is two consecutive state championships and one heck of a resume for this sophomore.

What impressed: He consistently gets better. Even though his first few starts on varsity were more of a baptism by fire, he got his sea legs and has made the most of his opportunity. From game to game and between his freshman and sophomore year, his accuracy and arm strength has gotten markedly better.

Why you should keep an eye out for him: His recruitment (though already impressive) will continue to gain traction as he plays across the country this summer with Detroit’s Maximum Exposure 7-on-7 team. On top of that, he’ll be able to chat with several recruiters and coaches as Detroit Cass Tech is a top destination for programs visiting the state of Michigan, as it continues to turn out Division I talent year after year.
