Chance Campbell is now officially a member of Maryland football after signing his letter of intent on Wednesday.
Campbell attended Calvert Hall College High School in Towson, Maryland, and is the No. 22 player in Maryland and No. 77 linebacker in the country, according to the 247 Sports Composite. He verbally committed to Maryland on May 26, picking the Terps over Michigan State, Pittsburgh, Navy and others.
In his senior season, Campbell recorded 128 tackles, 12 sacks, five interceptions, two fumbles and scored three touchdowns while being named First Team All-Metro by the Baltimore Sun.
Maryland has to replace Jermaine Carter, Shane Cockerille and Jalen Brooks heading into 2018, so Campbell has a chance to compete for playing time right away. Campbell is one of five linebacker commits in the Class of 2018, joining Durell Nchami, Nihym Anderson, Jordan Mosley and Fa’Najae Gotay.
He’s also one of eight Maryland natives in the Terps’ 2018 recruiting class, and is one of two Baltimore-area players to commit to Maryland along with four-star offensive tackle Jaelyn Duncan. Maryland also had two players from the area in its 2017 class: offensive lineman Jordan McNair and defensive lineman B’Ahmad Miller.
