‘WHOLE BIG EAST’ & MORE ON ’14 NYC F CHRIS MCCULLOUGH
Chris McCullough burst onto the national recruiting radar last summer with a series of strong performances during the month of July, first at the Hoop Group Elite Session 1 Camp and the Hoop Group team camp playing with the Salisbury (CT) School. McCullough built up a strong following and next thing you knew college coaches were making sure they knew where his team SCAN AAU squad would be playing throughout the open evaluation periods of July last year.
Fast-forward to a year later and McCullough is regarded as one of the elite prospects in the Class of 2014. The NYC native is once again making the rounds with Team SCAN on the AAU circuit and beginning this weekend his camp tour is also picking up as he headed west for the Pangos All-American camp in California.
This past high school season the 6-foot-9, 207 pound forward scored 26 points in the New England Class A Basketball Championship game and led the Salisbury School to it’s first ever title. Considered a hybrid forward, McCullough filled NBE in on that he is working to fine tune everything in his game.
“Going to the rim [is my strength],” he said. “I need to improve my overall game.”
Last summer McCullough told us he made unofficial visits to UConn, Providence, Rutgers and St. John’s. He also at the time told us that schools that offered were St. John’s, Providence, Rutgers, Florida, Iowa State, Syracuse, Temple and Hofstra in addition to interest from Arizona, UMass, North Carolina, Seton Hall, Pittsburgh and Kansas State. As we head into this summer period McCullough is just taking the recruiting aspect as it comes, not really looking at things very seriously on that front yet.
“I’m wide open in my recruitment,” he recently told NBE. “The whole Big East, Temple, Iowa State, Hofstra, Arizona [and] Kansas [have offered].”
With the June 15th date of when college coaches can begin unlimited texting and calls of Class of 2014 players, you can be certain Chris McCullough will be a hot target of some of the biggest names in college basketball. Additional scholarship offers are certain to pour in for this elite prospect who cites “coaches and style of play” as the factors that will be most important in his eventual college decision. NBE will certainly make our way to see Team SCAN in action and follow up in July with how the recruiting process is going for Chris McCullough. Stay tuned…
