2019 point guard Tyger Campbell, a five-star player, has committed to DePaul!

Yup, you read that right.

Campbell, who currently attends La Lumiere School in La Porte, Indiana will be reclassifying to the Class of 2018 as the aforementioned tweet by Scout.com’s Evan Daniels states. Thus, the DePaul Blue Demons will have themselves an uber-talented floor general stepping onto the floor for them next fall.

This is a bit of a big maneuver for DePaul as Tyger Campbell is their first five-star player in a decade. Power forward Mac Koshwal, a Chicago native, was the last blue-chipper for the Blue Demons back in 2007 and the only other one since 247Sports began keeping record back in the year 2000.

His Crystal Ball was 100 percent in favor of the Michigan State Spartans. His last recorded contact with them was back on January 29 according to 247Sports, as he took an unofficial visit on that day. Since then, he’d been offered by the Marquette Golden Eagles, and visited DePaul’s campus twice including this past Friday. Three days later, Tyger decided to make an early commitment.

For now, as far as his 2019 standing, he’s the second best player in his class behind Fort Wayne’s Keion Brooks. He’s the sixth-best player at his position and the 25th-best player in the nation. But, again, that will soon change after his reclassification goes through.

That’s what’cha call a power move.

Congrats to Tyger Campbell and best of luck to him with DePaul!
