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.

Bears sign veteran offensive lineman Bradley Sowell

The Bears bolstered their offensive line on Tuesday with the signing of Bradley Sowell to a one-year contract.

Sowell, 27, was the Week 1 starter at right tackle for the Seattle Seahawks last season. He appeared in 10 games and made nine starts for the Seahawks in 2016.

Sowell spent 2013-15 with the Arizona Cardinals and appeared in all 48 games during his tenure with the team, making 12 starts at left tackle in 2013.

Sowell was originally signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Mississippi in 2012. He was waived after not making the final 53-man roster and was later signed by the Indianapolis Colts.

Sowell is the second offensive lineman the Bears have signed since the NFL Draft concluded. On Monday the Bears agreed to terms with veteran interior lineman Taylor Boggs to a one-year deal.

As part of our coverage leading up to the 2017 NFL Draft we will provide profiles of more than 100 prospects, including a scouting report and video interviews with each player.

Evan Engram, TE, Ole Miss

6'3" | 234 lbs.

2016 stats:

65 receptions, 926 yards, 8 touchdowns

Projection:

First-to-second round

Scouting Report:

"Makes up for his lack of size with athletic ability and plus speed for the position. Engram has experience as a safety blanket for Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly and can work all three levels of the field. He will appeal strictly to teams looking for a move tight end who can be deployed as a chess piece in a matchup-based passing attack. Engram's ability to stress defenses could land him on Day 2 (Rounds 2-3) of the draft and a potential starting role early in his career." - Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
