DePaul basketball landed a major commitment on Monday night.
La Porte (Ind.) La Lumiere School four-star point guard Tyger Campbell announced his commitment to DePaul on Monday night. A 2019 prospect, Campbell is planning on reclassifying to 2018 according to multiple reports.
Campbell is the No. 6 point guard and No. 25 overall player in the 2019 class.
Now, besides DePaul landing a major recruit, which is rare as it is, Campbell's commitment could be big in another way.
DePaul head coach Dave Leitao recently hired Campbell's high school coach, Shane Heirman, and is firmly in the mix to land his teammate, five-star small forward Brian Bowen.
Credit Leitao for some savvy recruiting of late. If he manages to land Bowen, it could be a game-changer for a downtrodden program.
