2011 Commit: Torrey Campbell

on
Somewhat overshadowed by second day of the Big Ten Media Days was the news of a new recruit committing. Torrey Campbell, a running back/defensive back, from Florida became the 12th member of Iowa's 2011 recruiting class. He is rated 3-stars by both Scout and Rivals.

Campbell in High School

Campbell attends Barron Collier High School in Naples, FL. The Cougars were 9-2 last year and won their division. Campbell plays both sides of the ball for the Cougars. On offense he's a running back and on defense a defensive back. Though, most of his time thus far has been on offense. Barron Collier runs a spread attack and uses multiple running backs, but Campbell still finished the season with 552 rushing yards.

Stats:
  • 2008 Rushing - 159 rushes for 999 yards, 9 TDs
  • 2009 Rushing - 73 rushes for 552 yards, 6 TDs
  • 2009 Defense - 10 tackles, 2 passes defended

This kid's biggest asset looks to be his speed. He runs track and actually participated in an event at Drake when he was in Iowa on a visit. He finished 12th in the 110-meter hurdles. He reportedly runs around a 4.4 40. Though he played offense and defense in high school, Iowa has him pegged as a cornerback, a position in greater need of help than running back at this point. He seems the right size for an Iowa corner, 5-11 and 180 lbs. He may just need to add a little weight to get up around 200. He is definitely a good looking athlete and an exciting pick up for Iowa.
