Chris McCullough, a 6'10" top-25 forward in the Class of 2014, is reportedly transferring to Brewster Academy (a bit of news retweeted by McCullough himself), per Hoop Dreams Magazine.
Brewster Academy is where both incoming recruit JaKarr Sampson and transfer Max Hooper played their last high school years. Coach Jason Smith's program has received a lot of high profile attention, regularly attracting top-100 talents to the Wolfeboro, New Hampshire school; the program plays against the top prep teams in the nation.
The Rumble will keep an eye out for official confirmation; but since McCullough retweeted the information himself, we'll assume it's legit.
McCullough, originally from the Bronx (and friends with Dwight Hardy) previously played at Connecticut's Salisbury School. In the summers, the talented forward runs (and dunks) with the AAU's Team Scan, who enjoyed a strong AAU season. McCullough has drawn recruiting attention from a who's who of national schools, including St. John's, Syracuse, Memphis, West Virginia, Florida, Seton Hall, Connecticut, and Kansas. More, below the fold.
Chris McCullough is a coveted top-25 forward in the Class of 2014 - the kind of high-priority recruit for the Red Storm that can anchor a national emergence in 2014.
He's expressed interest in playing at Madison Square Garden to Adam Zagoria, saying that "the Garden is one of the big stadiums to play at. St. John's, I always like them' I always watched them." McCullough, however, also told Zagoria that he wants to convince fellow New Yorkers Isaiah Whitehead and Jermaine Lawrence to join up at Syracuse.
He's known to be an excellent big man with range and a handle, a potential one-and-done who could slot into a forward position after players like Orlando Sanchez leave the program. See the current and future scholarship chart.
