Campbell proved to be an immediate standout after signing with the Rebels, emerging not only as the starter as a true freshman but ranking second in the SEC and 12th in the NCAA with a sparkling 43.95 yards per attempt in 2009. He was significantly better a year later, leading all NCAA punters with a 46.37 yard average. His numbers slipped a bit this past season (43.6) but in reviewing his tape it is clear that some of this drop-off was due to his doing a better job of deadening punts inside the 20 (placed a career-high 28 here after just 13 in 2010) and the Rebels simply playing poorly in coverage.
