Once again this week, Pittsburgh Sports Now will get you ready for Pitt’s second Junior Day, which takes place this Saturday (February 25).

Over the last few weeks, the Pitt football coaches have offered a number of both inside and outside junior linebackers.

Players such as Nihym Anderson, Xavier Peters, Nick DeNucci and Vinny DePalma have received offers from Pitt. So has Calvert Hill (Baltimore, Maryland) outside linebacker Chance Campbell, who will be in town this weekend for Pitt Junior Day.

Campbell (6-foot-2-inches, 225 pounds) is making this visit after just receiving an offer on February 15 from linebacker coach Rob Harley.

“I’ve been talking with Coach Harley and he told me to call him when I could so I did. He was asking me about trying to make it down to Junior Day, then he told me I had an offer from Pitt,” said Campbell.

“I was just so excited. My mom was with me and saw me smiling and wanted to know what was going on. It was real cool. It caught me off guard definitely. I had talked with Coach Harley a couple of times in the past so we’ve had consistent conversation. I was hoping it would come but I didn’t expect it then.”

As far as his conversations with Coach Harley, Campbell definitely thinks he’s a guy he would enjoy as his possible future position coach.

“He just seems like a great guy. He’s a coach that cares about what he does and has a lot of passion. He’s someone that I can tell relates well to his players.”

Campbell is someone that isn’t being heavily recruited yet but you get the feeling that it’s  only a matter of time before that starts picking up. Right now, he holds offers from Pitt, Maryland and Army and is getting interest from Rutgers, Wake Forest and Duke. Over the weekend, Campbell attended Rutger’s Junior Day.

“I’m an instinctive player, I play fast, fly to the football and am physical at the point of attack,” said Campbell.

So this Saturday, Campbell will travel to Pittsburgh for the first time and will begin the process of really getting to know the Pitt football program and the coaches.

“I’ve never been to Pittsburgh. I really want to meet the coaches in person and start building that relationship on a personal level. It’s kind of tough to do it on the phone. There’s only so much you can do on the phone. I’m really excited to get down there and meet them and learn about the program.”
