Mailk Campbell played two seasons as a reserve guard for the Syracuse basketball team. He was a three year letterman in Syracuse football as a wide receiver. He was a talented athlete who was thought could excel at either sport in Division 1.

At Turner Carroll High School, Campbell had earned all-state honors his senior year in football and in basketball. He originally went to the University of Maryland to play quarterback, but had to sit out his freshman season because he was academically ineligible due to an NCAA ruling that he did not have enough credits to graduate high school; so instead he went to back to high school to finish his degree. He then came to Syracuse to play quarterback, but did not play his freshman year because of the talented Donovan McNabb at that same position. When he came back for his sophomore season, he realized how rusty his skills had become and he switched to wide receiver.

Following graduation from Syracuse where he earned a degree in social work, Campbell started coaching AAU basketball. In the fall of 2005, he became an assistant basketball coach at Buffalo State.
