McCullough to Brewster Official; Kentucky Showing Interest
After a summer full of rumors and speculation about his future, Chris McCullough’s plans are now set.
The 6-foot-10 New York junior forward will spend his next two seasons at prep powerhouse Brewster (N.H.) Academy.
“I just felt like Brewster is a good program for me and I think [head coach] Jason [Smith] does a good job coaching,” McCullough, who leaves for school on Friday, told SNY.tv.
McCullough joins another loaded group under Smith.
“I look forward to playing with Kevin Zabo and Jared Terrell,” he said.
McCullough recently visited Memphis and Syracuse and he said there was a “possibility” he could pick the Orange after St. Benedict’s Prep point guard Tyler Ennis tried to persuade him to join him.
Recently, McCullough has also received texts from Kentucky coach John Calipari, although Kentucky has yet to offer.
“It [feels] good,” McCullough said. “He’s a good coach and he knows potential when he sees it.”
