Drew Campbell Discusses Iowa Football Offer, Visit
Jack Campbell's Younger Brother Picks Up Hawkeye Opportunity
Drew Campbell is proud of his older brother, Iowa senior linebacker Jack Campbell. That said, the younger sibling wants people to know he’s his own person.
The Hawkeyes offered Drew a scholarship during his campus visit on Sunday. The Class of 2024 defensive end from Cedar Falls cautioned anyone thinking Jack being a Hawkeye will influence his college choice.
“Jack has no part in my decision, but his success certainly shows what Iowa can do for a player,” Drew told HF.
Drew Campbell (6-4, 225) watched Jack lead the nation in tackles last season after being a three-star recruit in the 2019 Class. It was nice knowing the Iowa coaches saw the ability in him as well.
“I felt pretty good knowing all the hard work is paying off. They said they’re really impressed with my toughness and abilities on the field,” Drew said.
Campbell camped with the Hawkeyes in June. Sunday’s visit provided a more detailed look at the program along with the scholarship.
“We got to tour everything. The thing that stood out to me was how much they are able to develop kids into great players,” he said.
Iowa State offered Drew Campbell a scholarship when he camped there in June. Northern Iowa also extended an opportunity to the hometown standout.
As of now, the Hawkeyes don’t hold an edge on the competition.
“They’re like any other team right now. I still have not made a choice,” Campbell said.
He’s looking forward to experience the Iowa Football game day from a recruit’s perspective this fall.
“I’ll be down a few times. I just want to get a chance to learn more about them,” he said.
As a sophomore, Campbell recorded 5.5 sacks and 8.5 tackles for loss. He posted 22.5 tackles (15.0 solo).
