Wake Forest receiver Michael Campanaro to meet with Ravens tonight at Senior Bowl

MOBILE, Ala. -- Wake Forest wide receiver Michael Campanaro is scheduled to have a formal interview with the Ravens tonight at the Senior Bowl.

He has already spoken informally with the Ravens as they meet with several draft prospects here at this all-star game. The River Hill graduate and Clarksville native is the Demon Deacons' all-time leading receiver with 229 receptions. He ranks third in school history with 2,506 yards.

Campanaro was fully cleared medically two weeks ago after he broke his collarbone during his senior year at Wake Forest, which limited him to eight games. Before the injury, he caught 67 passes for 803 yards and six touchdowns.

"I'm just happy to be out here, flying around and playing again," Campanaro said. "I've been knocking off the rust a little bit."

As a junior, Campanaro caught 79 passes for 763 yards and seven touchdowns, earning All-Atlantic Coast Conference second-team honors. He is projected to be a fourth- or fifth-round draft pick as a 5-foot-9, 193-pound slot receiver.

At River Hill, Campanaro helped his team win consecutive Class 2A state championships and was selected to the Under Armour All-America game as a senior. He rushed for 1,848 yards and 29 touchdowns as a senior and had 6,500 yards of total offense and 90 touchdowns in three seasons.

"I grew up a Redskins fan, but I'm not one of those Redskins fans who hates the Ravens," Campanaro said. "I went to a ton of Ravens games growing up. I love the Ravens, too, because they were so good, winning Super Bowls and Ed Reed and Ray Lewis and those guys.  I like watching the Ravens just as much."
