Arlington Bowie's Devon Campbell has emerged as one of the nation's top offensive line prospects for the Class of 2022.
"I really didn't like football until the seventh grade," he said. "My parents wanted me to play, so I did. Because I was so big, everyone just kept telling me to stay with it -- that football could be my future."
The 6-foot-4, 270-pound tackle's film is impressive. What kept jumping out was his athleticism.
Growing up in the basketball-crazed state of Indiana, Jack Tucker had dreams of being a big-time college basketball star.
Moving to Texas changed all of that.
The 6-foot-6, 275-pound offensive lineman out of Argyle High School lived out his dream, committing to Texas Tech today.
"I loved basketball for the longest time," he said. "My mom played in college and I was always the biggest guy on the court. During my freshman year, my coaches told me I had a future in football. I found out really quick that it was easier to gain weight, get to 300-pounds and play football than to grow to 6-foot-11 and play basketball. Being 6-foot-7 means two drastically different things in football than in basketball."
His "ah-ha" moment really hit during his sophomore year when college coaches were coming to campus to recruit teammate Preston Wilson, who now plays at Oklahoma State.
