Only Cameron Campbell Days Until USF Football Season

#69 hasn't been too #nice to the players who have worn it. Can today's player buck the trend?

#69 OL Cameron Campbell
Redshirt Freshman, 6'3", 288 lbs.

2015 Stats: Campbell redshirted last year.

Position on Depth Chart: Cameron is not listed on the post-spring depth chart.

How He Came To USF: Campbell played for Flanagan High School in Pembroke Pines, Florida. During his last two years on the offensive line, the Falcons lost only one regular-season game and reached the Class 8A state semifinals in 2014. That was after he had already committed to USF, even though he took a late official visit to Temple.

There are three years' worth of highlight reels on Cameron's Hudl page. Here's the one from his senior year:

Recruiting Rankings: Campbell was given three stars by ESPN, and two stars by Rivals, 247, and Scout.

Projected Playing Time: It doesn't look like Cameron will get much playing time at center, his listed position. There are two fellow underclassmen in front of him on the depth chart. But he played left tackle in high school, so his versatility may help him get on the field. He could also find himself on the punting and kicking teams.

Follow Him On... Cameron's on Twitter at his old high school number, @CAMERON64_. He might be on Instagram too, but you wouldn't believe how many Cameron Campbells there are on there. We just didn't have time to go through them all.

Did You Know: OK, for all you 12-year-olds out there, let's study the history of #69 at USF. It has not been good. There have been eight players who wore #69 for the Bulls. But only one of them has ever started a game, to our knowledge.

  • 1997 - Brian McNulty (lettered, but we don't know how many games he played in)
  • 1998 - Ben Pultorak (didn't play, switched to #64 for 1999, according to the media guide)
  • 2000 - Austin Davenport (no record of him playing in a game)
  • 2001-03 - Chris McBee (played a handful of games as a reserve)
  • 2005-07 - Nick Capogna (by far the most recognizable and productive player on the list)
  • 2008-10 - Josh Garvin (only played in one game)
  • 2011-13 - Jake Smith (only played in one game)

This is Cameron's second year wearing #69. We'll see what kind of name he can make for himself in that number.
