Former Georgetown point guard Tre Campbell will finish his college career elsewhere.
Tre Campbell spent three years as a role player for the Georgetown Hoyas. Ahead of this season, he left the basketball program but remained on scholarship at the school.
It doesn’t look like his basketball career is over just yet, however.
The former Hoyas will head elsewhere as a graduate transfer, according to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman. He will be able to play right away after graduating from Georgetown.
Georgetown's Tre Campbell told ESPN he will transfer and has received his release. Will be a grad transfer and be able to play immediately.

Last February, Campbell was injured in a bus accident that occurred as the Hoyas were on their way to face Villanova. NBC Sports’ Rob Dauster was the first to report the injury.

He missed that Villanova game, and played just six total minutes over Georgetown’s final eight games of the year. He played three minutes each in losses to St. John’s and a March home game against Villanova, hitting two free throws in the game against the Red Storm but recording no other stats.
When it was announced that Campbell would not play this year, Casual Hoya, Georgetown’s SB Nation blog, wrote that it was rumored that the injury could keep him out this year as well. It is unclear if that was part of the decision for Campbell to leave the Hoyas this year.
Campbell, a Washington, D.C. native, averaged 3.4 points, 1.3 assists, and 1.2 rebounds per game for the Hoyas last season. His best year with the team was his sophomore campaign in 2015-16. That year he posted career highs in scoring (4.1 points per game), rebounds (1.8), and assists (1.7), and played 20.9 minutes per game, over six more than in 2016-17.
He was a pretty heralded high school recruit. As a member of the class of 2014, Campbell was the No. 107 player in the country, and a four-star recruit per 247Sports‘ composite rankings.
The site ranked him No. 25 among point guards, and second in the city of Washington in his class. He chose the Hoyas over offers from Maryland, Penn State, Pitt, Xavier, and others.
Head coach John Thompson III was fired after the disappointing finish to the 2017 season. Georgetown lost its final six games of the regular season, and eight of the last nine. Thompson was replaced with Hoya legend and former NBA great Patrick Ewing.
