U.S. Army All-American Bowl coverage | More all-star coverageMORE:
SAN ANTONIO - Detroit Cass Tech defensive tackle William Campbell has been keeping people guessing all week when it comes to his college destination.
However, the 6-foot-5, 317-pounder finally made his choice public on national television at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Saturday. Campbell has decided to play his college football at Michigan and play for Rich Rodriguez.
"I like how they let everybody play," Campbell said of his choice to re-commit to Michigan. "They give you a chance to earn a spot like they did with (fellow defensive lineman) Mike Martin. They let him play as a true freshmen. I just like how they do things and rotate a lot of people."
Campbell re-committed to Michigan over LSU, Miami, Alabama and Florida. He had been committed to Michigan early in the process but decided to de-commit back in September in order to take official visits.
The big man took officials to all five of his favorites before choosing the Wolverines in the end.
Campbell is rated at the No. 1 prospect in Michigan and the nation's No. 4 defensive tackle prospect by Rivals.com. He checks in at No. 25 in the 2009 Rivals100.
