4-star PG Tyger Campbell has Maryland in top 4, sets commitment date

The Terps could add their fourth blue-chip prospect of the class this week.

Four-star point guard Tyger Campbell announced his top four college choices Thursday, with Maryland basketball still on the list alongside Purdue, UCLA and DePaul.

Campbell told MadeHoops.com’s Pat Lawless that he will announce his commitment on Thursday, Feb. 1.

The La Lumiere, Indiana, native is the No. 72 overall player and No. 13 point guard in the Class of 2018, per the 247Sports Composite. He committed to DePaul in May 2017 but decommitted in September. Since then, he visited Purdue in October, Maryland over the weekend of Jan. 7 and UCLA this past weekend.

Campbell would become the fourth member of Maryland’s 2018 class, joining five-star forward Jalen Smith and four-star wing Aaron Wiggins and combo guard Eric Ayala. With the Terps lacking a true backup point guard behind Anthony Cowan this season, landing Campbell to fill that role would be a significant improvement. He’d also be Maryland’s first pledge in over three months, as the Terps have missed on Moses Brown, Jairus Hamilton and several other blue-chip targets since.
