McCullough Taking Visits

Chris McCullough, one of the heaviest recruited prospects in the national class of 2014, took three unofficial visits last week after seeing Seton Hall unofficially earlier in the month.  

McCullough began the week with a trip to Memphis, and was on the Tiger’s campus the same day they earned a big commitment in the class of 2013 from local product Nick King.  

King and Markel Crawford, who has also committed to Memphis, joined McCullough on campus that day, along with the rest of the Tigers’ players who were attending their first day of classes.  

Following his trip to Memphis, McCullough traveled north to Syracuse later last week for the Orange Elite Camp, where he was joined by Isaiah Whitehead, another top prospect in the class of 2014 from New York.  

McCullough, Whitehead, and Jermaine Lawrence had previously made headlines by admitting they have discussed the possibility of all attending Syracuse together.  

Lawrence would join another highly rated 2013 commit, point guard Tyler Ennis, who was in attendance at Elite Camp and is doing his best to aid the coaching staff in their pursuit of McCullough according to multiple media reports.  

McCullough’s third and final visit of the week took him to West Virginia this weekend.  The Mountaineers have established a strong pipeline into New York since Bob Huggins’ arrival and are looking to solidify those ties as they move from the Big East to the Big 12 Conference next season.

McCullough, who is expected to attend Brewster Academy for the coming season, would team with Elijah Macon, a six-foot-eight big man in the class of 2013 who is already committed to Huggins and West Virginia.
