Oakland Tech WR DiAndre Campbell is a Husky

According to the Contra Costa Times and Scout Oakland Tech WR DiAndre Campbell is going to be a Husky. He has good size at 6'2 175 and a reported 4.5 40 time. He obviously takes the place of Tevin Carter who de-committed a few weeks ago to verbal to Cal. He had interest from BYU, Utah, and Arizona State. 

Defining under the Radar

Sark recruits a lot like his boss at USC did. He has his own list and set of evaluations. Just because a kid isn't listed at Rivals or Scout doesn't mean he isn't a great prospect. Take Tevin Carter for example. He was lightly recruited until UW offered him and he accepted. Other coaches in the Pac 10 took notice and went after him. He decided to go to Cal rather than UW.

The top kids on the Scout and Rivals lists are always the kids the top schools go after. Ever notice how a three star at Washington ends up being a four star if he goes to USC? There is a lot of sense in using that type of logic because Pete Carroll just might know a thing or two more than Chris Fetters or some other Web based evaluator.

The point of all this is we don't know a lot about Campbell yet, but if Pete Carroll, or Jeff Tedford gives him a call next week our collective panties are all going to be in a bunch over it.

Campbell jumped 20" 6 3/4" to win the long jump in a meet this spring. Those kind of numbers get coaches attention because they indicate explosiveness. Add 4.5 speed and good size and you have a pretty decent prospect.
