DEANDRE Campbell has received some interest from a few low to mid-major Division I programs as well as some Division II schools, but his sights are set for free college.
WHEN asked about what he is looking for in a program, Campbell’s reply was instant and quite simple. “Honestly, I just want to go to school for free. Anywhere I can fit the program and receive a scholarship I’ll show interest.”
AT the Ramey-Jets United tournament in Belleville, Illinois, Campbell displayed the tools that have gotten him interest from a list of schools. He showed that his big, strong body does not lack for finesse and athleticism. He can move through traffic by weaving in and out of bodies in the paint, and can also over power another player when under the basket. In his own opinion, he believes the best asset of his game is his ability to get to the rim. His strength and size makes it difficult for other guards to stop him once they get in front of him, and his speed allows him to explode through the paint. His short passing can be strong at times but that is just matter of power correction. His outlet and half-court passes are where his passing game really excels. He plays on a fast paced, high flying team so he often times has the opportunity to find the open man streaking down the court for an easy, fast break bucket.
GOING into his senior season at Parkway Central, his goals for the season are easy, “I want to gain a few more offers, and commit somewhere to play at the collegiate level."
