Campbell had surgery last summer to repair a torn labrum in his right (throwing) shoulder. He returned to lead Simi Valley (Calif.) HS to the CIF-Southen Section playoffs this season, striking out 11 and hitting a three-run home run in the Pioneers’ playoff opener. Campbell is physically huge at 6-foot-7, 210 pounds. His fastball sits in the upper 80’s and touches 91 mph with downhill plane from his towering release point. He complements his fastball with a mid-70s curveball and shows feel for a changeup. Campbell is a good athlete who is also a power-hitting first baseman, and he previously played basketball in high school. He is a mature, mentally tough individual who performed while his mom battled breast cancer the last two years. He is committed to Tulane.
