Virginia Tech has shown steady interest in 2021 three-sar TE Miles Campbell since extending him a scholarship offer in early December. The 6-3, 225 prospect out of Georgia currently holds 11 Power offers.
According to Campbell, he enjoyed a successful junior season in 2019. He caught 53 passes for 630 yards and eight touchdowns on the season.
Campbell says that the Hokies' coaching staff has shown "good interest" so far in his recruiting process. As of right now, he does not have one school standing out above the others.
Multiple scouts have spoken highly of Campbell already. Barry Every of SouthernPigskin.com and XOS Digital had some early praise for the young tight end.
"Campbell is a hybrid TE/WR that will cause matchup problems, and he helped to lead South Paulding (Ga.) to their best record in school history," Every said. "Great hands and good route runner."
For Campbell, the school he chooses will have to be more than just a contender on the field. He says that "family atmosphere and comfortability" will be two of the most important factors in his decision.
Taking things one step at a time has also been Campbell's philosophy. He currently has just one visit planned for the near future, but he's comfortable with where he is.
"I'll be at Tennessee this weekend, and then we will take it from there," Campbell said.
While he has not yet visited Virginia Tech, he says Blacksburg is certainly on his list of places to go. When he does get on campus, he'll be looking for that family atmosphere that he mentioned was so important to him.
What's clear is that Campbell fits the hybrid tight end/receiver mold that the Hokies have had plenty of success with in their offense. James Mitchell showed that this past season with 361 yards and 2 touchdowns on 21 receptions plus 4 rushing touchdowns on 5 carries.
The question that remains is will Miles Campbell potentially be the next hybrid TE/WR to have success in Blacksburg or will he end up elsewhere? Right now, Tech clearly is showing lots of interested in the versatile tight end from Georgia.
