No. 72 Jr Tyger Campbell Decommits From DePaul

ESPN No. 72 ranked high school junior Tyger Campbell has decommitted from DePaul.

 

“First off, I would like to thank DePaul University and the city of Chicago for their show of love and belief in me,” Campbell said via Twitter. “After great consideration and with the full support of my family, I have decided to open my college recruitment. I am thankful to all the coaches, colleges, friends, and family that have stood by me during this journey. I am ready to embark fully into this process and make a well-informed decision on where I will attend college.”

 

The 5-11 point guard averaged 11.3 points and 7.8 assists on 44 percent shooting from three this season for La Lumiere (La Porte, IN).

 

Campbell led La Lumiere (27-1) past Montverde Academy (FL) 70-52 in March to win the DICK’s title and earn the designation as the nation’s No. 1 high school team.

 

He had originally signed with DePaul in May after his high school coach Shane Heirman had taken an assistant job with the school.

 

But now he is headed elsewhere.

 

Losing the talented Campbell is a big loss for the Blue Demons.

 

“[Campbell] shocked the basketball world in May when he verbally committed to become a Blue Demon on Twitter, despite fielding offers from several more prestigious basketball schools around the country,” wrote the DePaulia’s Paul Steeno. “This is a blow to a DePaul program that had put together a nice body of work in the recruiting department this offseason.”

 

“Campbell would have been DePaul’s first five-star recruit since Quentin Richardson in 1998, filling a huge hole at point-guard left by Billy Garrett Jr.,” Steeno added.

 

Michigan State, Purdue, Alabama, UNLV, and Illinois are some of the schools that had offered Campbell before he committed to DePaul.

 

Stay tuned.
