It looks like there will be an heir to Markel Starks’ throne after all.
Tre Campbell, a junior point guard from local St. John’s High School, verbally committed to the Hoyas on Wednesday night following an offer from Head Coach John Thompson III last week.
Although currently ranked just 121st overall in the Class of 2014, Campbell also received offers from a host of other quality programs — including Maryland, Pittsburgh, Virginia Commonwealth and Xavier — and fills a necessary void for a program that going into 2013-14 will feature just one pure floor general on its roster.
Campbell marks the second recruit in the 2014 class for JT III, who previously received a verbal from 6-foot-9 forward Isaac Copeland in early March.
The most recent commitment on Wednesday was made public via Campbell’s personal Twitter account, with a tweet at 9:25 p.m. reading simply, “I have officially Committed to Georgetown University.”
