It’s a Red River battle for five-star OL Devon Campbell

BUENA VISTA LAKE, Florida – Texas has been a school linked to five-star offensive lineman Devon Campbell since the beginning of his recruitment.

But the Early Signing period came and went, and the amazing Bowie of Arlington, Texas was still not making the effort, let alone signing anywhere.

The Longhorns are waiting patiently – and still recruiting tremendously – Campbell, who has also announced Oklahoma among his top two.

“I’m really not sure and evaluating my options,” Campbell said Wednesday night during the opening practice of the Under Armor All-America Game.

“I’m just taking my time and trying to enjoy the process.”

All the things Campbell liked about Texas remain at stake. It is close to home. He has been hard-recruited from Texas for a long time. The level of comfort is there.

But the five-star is not yet ready to make its commitment.

“Just because it’s close to home and they show more love,” Campbell said about why the Longhorns are so high on his list.

Oklahoma lingers. The change of coach from Lincoln Riley to Brent Venables not much has actually changed in Campbell’s mind, especially since the offensive line manager Bill Bedenbaugh he should remain on the new staff.

“Nothing has really changed with the departure of the coaching staff,” said Campbell. “The new staff came to see me, so everything was fine.”

The wait will continue. Numerous prospects will announce their engagements on Sunday at the Under Armor game, but not Campbell.

The five-star will keep Texas and Oklahoma waiting until February 3 and then the Longhorns and Sooners – and everyone else – will finally close.
