Say it ain't so: DePaul commit Tyger Campbell reopens recruitment

It looks like it was too good to be true.

Tyger Campbell shocked the recruiting world when he committed to DePaul on May 8.

Less than four months later, Campbell has reopened his recruitment.

The Rivals.com four-star point guard out of La Lumiere High School in Indiana, who is the No. 66 prospect in the 2018 Class, took to Twitter Friday night to explain his decision.

One of Campbell's original draws to the Blue Demons was DePaul hiring Shane Heirman as an assistant coach. Heirman coached Campbell for two seasons at La Lumiere.

"I like DePaul and honestly my coach (Shane Heirman) just went there and we have a great connection and he's always had my back," Campbell told Scout.com when he committed to the Blue Demons. "I like [DePaul] coach Dave Leitao, too. I like his program and he's an intelligent guy."

Campbell currently has offers from a handful of D1 schools, including Illinois, Michigan State, Ole Miss, Purdue, SMU, Memphis and Tennessee.

Nicky Delmonico gets opportunity to showcase himself with rebuilding with White Sox

Nicky Delmonico gets opportunity to showcase himself with rebuilding with White Sox

The rebuilding White Sox have called up another one of their talented prospects.

The White Sox announced on Tuesday they have purchased the contract of infielder/outfielder Nicky Delmonico from Triple-A Charlotte.

Delmonico takes the roster spot of outfielder Willy Garcia who was placed on the seven-day DL with a concussion.

Delmonico, 25, is slashing .262/.347/.421 with 12 home runs and 45 RBI in 99 games with Charlotte this season. Delmonico was named to the International League All-Star Team earlier this season.

Delmonico, who has no major league experience, was originally selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the 6th round of the 2011 MLB Draft  out of Tennessee. In 490 games spanning across six minor-league seasons, Delmonico has a .257/.341/.432 slash line with 61 homers and 248 RBI.

Garcia was injured in Monday's victory after he collided with rookie second baseman Yoan Moncada tracking down a fly ball in short right field.

The 24-year-old Garcia is slashing .258/.317/.441 with two home runs and 11 RBI in 40 games with the White Sox in 2017.

The White Sox continue a three-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Scouting Report:

"Dobbs is hardly incompetent as a passer, but he hasn't shown as much growth with his ball placement and accuracy as scouts had hoped to see from this former four-star prospect. Dobbs has decent size and is an outstanding runner outside the pocket which could appeal to a team looking for a developmental quarterback with play-making ability." — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
