COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina has landed some needed help at point guard with the addition of graduate transfer Tre Campbell of Georgetown.

Campbell announced his addition Tuesday on Twitter, posing in a South Carolina uniform while visiting campus.

The 6-foot-2 Campbell left the team before last season but remained on scholarship. He was injured his knee in a bus accident in February 2017 when the Hoyas were traveling to Villanova. Campbell said in his post the opportunity for a final season with the Gamecocks gave him a chance to “prove everybody wrong.”

Campbell should get an immediate long at point guard since the dismissal of expected starter Rakym Felder last month.

Campbell averaged 3.6 points in 20 games in 2016-17, his last with the Hoyas.
