Hurricanes 2026 commit Jordan Campbell working to recruit others to Miami’s class

MIAMI — Jordan Campbell is one of two players committed to Miami in the 2026 class. Although his signing day is a long way away, the Miami Carol City linebacker is working on getting more players to join him in the class.

“Every day, if I see a top five with UM in it, I’m going to text that guy,” Campbell told the South Florida Sun Sentinel. “I hit up everybody. I want us to be great. I want us to be as good as we can be.”

Campbell had a chance to talk to many other prospects who are considering the Hurricanes; he was one of more than 200 prospects who competed in Under Armour’s Miami camp on Sunday.

“It was fun competing out there with the best of the best, being able to show my skillset with the best of the best,” Campbell said. “That’s what I want to continue to keep on doing.”

The Hurricanes’ other 2026 commit, American Heritage wide receiver Malachi Toney, has known Campbell since they were children.

“Me and Malachi, we played (with the) Bunche Park Cowboys when we were like five,” Campbell said. “I’ve known him since Pee Wee.”

Campbell committed to the Hurricanes in November, choosing to commit long before he has to put pen to paper.

“The reason I decided to pull the trigger on Miami is because I’m from Miami, I love all Miami teams,” Campbell said. “They offered me, we had a great connection. We had a great bond. Me and (Mario) Cristobal talk very, very (well) whenever I see him. … Whenever I see any of the coaching staff, we have a blast. That’s why I’m thankful to be committed to the University of Miami.”

Although Campbell will play linebacker at the next level, he has also played wide receiver in high school. He has not spoken to Miami linebackers coach Derek Nicholson much, but has heard a lot from UM wide receivers coach Kevin Beard.

“My relationship mainly is with coach KB, the receivers coach; that’s who I talk to the most,” Campbell said. “We have good talks, great talks, long talks, football talks, life talks. Everything you would want to talk to a coach about.”

Campbell said he’s working on getting stronger, faster, more efficient and “more lethal” this spring. He said he plans on visiting the Hurricanes late in March.
