The six foot, four inch redshirt sophomore is 5-6 with a 4.12 ERA with 73 strikeouts in 67 2/3 innings this season.
He was a big subject of discussion in the postgame presser last night with Arkansas catcher Grant Koch. Here’s what Koch had to say about Campbell’s big upcoming start.
“Yeah, we’re expecting the same stuff he’s had for a little while now. And we have all the confidence in the world in him. He’s got four pitches that, you know, at times will command all of them. And that’s what we expect tomorrow.”
“He’s going to battle out there for us. He’s been really, really good of late. And he’s been really good in big-time situations, when we need him. And that’s exactly what’s going to happen.”
“Yeah, and, you know, I think that’s what we all expect, and that’s what we’re going to get. So we have all the confidence in the world, like Carson said, and our defense is going to be there to back him up.”
For more on Campbell, NCAA.com ran a preview of him earlier today that’s worth a quick read.
