More Orange in Brewster

On Saturday it was Brewster Academy guard Ron Patterson who became the fourth player to commit to Syracuse in the class of 2013.  

On Monday, Bobcats forward Chris McCullough got the Orange class of 2014 off to a big start with a verbal commitment from the 17th ranked prospect in the ESPN 60.  

McCullough is a New York native who has spent his entire high school career in New England.  He spent three years at the Salisbury school, leading them to consecutive NEPSAC title games and scoring MVP honors as they took the 2012 Class A championship, before transferring to Brewster for the 2012-2013 school year.   

On the AAU circuit he has starred for Team Scan and emerged as one of the hottest prospects in the country in the summer of 2011.  Since then he’s been recruited by a variety of some of college basketball’s most prestigious programs.  

With still two years left to play in his high school career and such wide-ranging recruitment, McCullough’s commitment doesn’t come as a total surprise, especially after he told that Syracuse was his favorite just two weeks ago.  

With as much natural talent as virtually any prospect in the national class of 2014, McCullough is very capable of shooting back up the rankings before his high school career comes to an end.
