Three Whitehouse senior football players will continue their careers at the next level.

Safety Colby Campbell, who was one of Whitehouse’s best defensive players in 2012, has committed to Lamar, he confirmed with ETSN.fm on Monday evening. Defensive lineman Will Thomas has committed to Hardin-Simmons, and offensive lineman McKenlee Smith has committed to Texas A&M-Commerce.

The 6-foot, 190-pound Campbell told ETSN.fm he has been quietly committed to the Cardinals for a couple of weeks, but after attending an official visit this past weekend, his commitment was reaffirmed and he wanted to make his decision public. Campbell had 77 tackles, one interception, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, and five pass breakups as a senior, when he helped the Wildcats to a 10-2 season that included a second-round playoff appearance.

Lamar is a Division I FCS program that competes in the Southland Conference. Longview running back Tory White will join Campbell at the Beaumont-based school after recently committing to the Cardinals.

Smith is a 6-foot-3, 320-pounder who chose Texas A&M-Commerce over West Texas A&M and SFA. He’s the second Whitehouse offensive lineman to commit, joining 6-foot-1, 315-pound Keagan Smith, who has committed to Kilgore College. Texas A&M-Commerce is a Division II school competing in the Lone Star Conference. The Lions have received recent commitments from a few other East Texans: Longview’s Corey Bartley (safety), Longview’s Justinn Spady (receiver), and John Tyler’s Traven Johnson (cornerback).

Thomas, who confirmed his commitment Monday evening, had 36 tackles, three sacks, and one forced fumble for the Wildcats. The 6-foot-2, 230-pounder played end and tackle in 2012. Hardin-Simmons is a Division III program playing in the American Southwest Conference.
