Terps make cut for 4-star PG Campbell

Four-star point guard Tyger Campbell, who on Monday cut his list to Maryland, UCLA, Purdue and DePaul, reportedly is set to announce his college decision Thursday. The La Lumiere School (Ind.) standout, rated the No. 72 overall recruit in the Class of the 2018, is the Terps' highest-rated senior target remaining. The undersized Campbell initially committed to DePaul in May but reopened his recruitment in September. The Terps' interest intensified in the fall, and he took an official visit to College Park on Jan. 7. He previously had visited DePaul and Purdue, and he took his most recent official visit, to UCLA, this weekend. With Campbell's pledge, the Terps would have the nation's fourth-ranked incoming class, according to the 247Sports.com team rankings. Five-star forward Jalen Smith (Mount Saint Joseph), four-star wing Aaron Wiggins and four-star combo guard Eric Ayala already have signed.
