Jordan Campbell transferred to Louisville last summer from USC, but never played a game for the Cards. Campbell was expected to be immediately eligible, due to former USC head coach Pete Carroll leaving the program with sanctions, however some academic issues kept Campbell out of action for the 2010 season. He left Louisville in January after his name started being mentioned with registered a registered NFL agent. Campbell was listed as a partner in 1st Round Enterprises, whose CEO, Tegue Egan, is a certified agent.
Campbell announced earlier this afternoon that he would finish his college career at New Mexico Highlands University, in Las Vegas, NM. NMHU is a member of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. The Cowboys were 1-10 last season.
I spoke with Campbell earlier this summer and despite the abrupt exit at Louisville, he had nothing but nice things to say about Charlie Strong and the Louisville program. “I always check up on the Louisville boys, Coach Strong has something special going on in the Ville . I’m predicting big east champs.”
I think the Cards will be fine at linebacker this year, but a part of me is wishing things would have worked out with Campbell in Louisville.
