2015 Wide receivers open up about recruiting process

ST. PETERSBURG — 2015 Wide receivers George Campbell (6-3, 183, Palm Harbor, FL East Lake) and Deondre Farrier (6-3, 173, Orlando, FL Lake Nona) two central Florida prospects with Division-1 aspirations spoke with Gator Country about their recruitment during the 2014 Under Armour combine.

Campbell was a Michigan commit until December 13th, when he rescinded his pledge from the maize and blue after speaking with his family. He’s keeping his options open for now and has no specific leaders but is in the process of evaluating his choices. He hasn’t contacted any schools lately, he does have a list of things he’s looking for in a potential school.

“Pretty much academics, and if I feel like I can be at home there and how they develop a player,” Campbell said.

Campbell (who has an offer from the Gators) has been approached by fellow combine participant Jeffrey Holland. Holland is an uncommitted 2015 linebacker from Jacksonville, but Campbell would not delve into the specifics about their conversation.

“We talk about a little something, but that’s for us, that aint for everybody,” Campbell said.

Farrier is yet to receive an offer from the Gators but does plan to visit. The Gators have been in contact and have one message for him.

“Florida’s telling me, keep my head up, do it big, I mean work hard,“ Farrier said.

He’s a USF commit, but was yet to receive major attention from the three big schools in Florida until UF got in touch with him. FSU is still yet to make contact with him.

He has things he likes about Florida’s offense, but is waiting to get on campus to speak to coaches in person.

“I just like the way they move the ball around,” Farrier said. “I just want to go up there and see them, see how they’re doing.”

While UF hasn’t offered yet, Farrier did indicate what it would do for his recruiting process.

“Nothing right now,” Farrier said. But added “I would think about it.”

Richard lives in Gainesville and prides himself in being a bonafide lifelong Alachua County Resident. He attends the University of Florida and is in his third year studying Telecommunications. He isn’t sure how he started loving football being the son of two immigrants that don’t care about the sport, but he has developed a borderline unhealthy obsession with it. In his free time, Richard watches other sports and is an avid fan of the Los Angeles Lakers and Tampa Bay Rays. He doesn’t like chocolate, knows Moe’s is better than Chipotle and drinks way too many Arnold Palmers. He also took up golf in the summer of 2012. That pursuit isn’t going well.
