Campbell, a 3-star safety from Alabama, is the sixth player in the 2014 class that could play in the defensive backfield. Five recruits are listed as defensive backs and Koa Farmer is listed as a linebacker/safety. At six-foot-one, 181 pounds, Campbell already has decent size for a defensive back. Until his decision to go to Penn State, Minnesota and Missouri were the favorites to land the defensive back.
Campbell makes the 25th player to commit to the Nittany Lions for the 2014 class. Under the NCAA sanctions, Penn State is allowed to have 20 scholarships this season. Five recruits do not count for this class as they are now enrolled at the school.
With a day left before National Signing Day, the recruiting class is now full. However, former Vanderbilt commit Lloyd Tubman, who was the first to follow Franklin to Penn State, has decided to reopen his recruiting. If that happens, there will be one available scholarship that could be used on Wednesday.
