The UCLA basketball team has a big target in their sights and it seems as if 4-star point guard Tyger Campbell has the Bruins in his sights as he announces his top 4.

The UCLA basketball team has been doing well in the current recruiting cycle and they look to improve off their already top 5 class. Last week, the Bruins got a huge commitment from 5-star center Moses Brown which rocketed the Bruins up to #4 in the 247Sports 2018 recruiting class rankings.

So far, the Bruins have a solid class with two shooting guards (4-star Jules Bernard and David Singleton III) and two centers (Brown and 3-star Kenny Nwuba). What would put this class over the top is a point guard, which the Bruins are in desperate need of.

One candidate, 4-star PG Tyger Campbell, would fit perfectly in the Bruins’ class.

UCLA could be without starting point guard Aaron Holiday next season as he is expected to jump into the NBA Draft. That would leave the Bruins with Jaylen Hands who was projected to be a possible one-and-done before the season, though he would benefit from another season in Westwood.

Either way, the Bruins are in need of another floor general and Campbell could be the answer. Good news for UCLA is that Campbell just released his top 4 and the Bruins made the cut along with DePaul, Maryland and Purdue.

Campbell has the skills that would fit nicely with UCLA’s uptempo style. He is a fearless scorer that is not afraid to drive to the basket and can switch from his right to left hand at any given opportunity. He is also gritty ball player, similar to that of former Bruin Russell Westbrook.

As a distributor, he has great vision which allows him to see plays develop. He is also a great passer and can find the open man with ease. Campbell is also known for his hustle, which gives him an advantage on the defensive end, something the Bruins need.

Campbell just came off his official visit to UCLA, which is good news for the Bruins as they got the last chance to impress the energetic point guard as he is expected to make his decision on Thursday, February 1. Hopefully we hear a “BOOM” from his camp on that day.
