NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- The final day of the National Prep Showcase turned into a prospect party. Top 20 junior and rising forward Chris McCullough (New York, N.Y./Brewster) looks like an impact recruit for Syracuse. In addition to McCullough, we watched the maturation of center Goodluck Okonoboh (Boston, Mass./Wilbraham & Monson) and the introduction of wing Marial Shayok (Ottawa, Can./Blair Academy).
Brewster was an upset victim on Saturday but their interior duo of McCullough and Kyle Washington (Champlain, Minn./Brewster) asserted themselves Sunday morning. Washington was honest about his performance on Saturday. “I stunk,” he said during warm-ups. Once the game tipped on Sunday, Washington patrolled the paint, challenged a bunch of shots and handled his business when given the chance to finish. His length and tenacity on the glass was also outstanding.
Dave Telep/ESPN.comSyracuse commit Chris McCullough is a talented and athletic 6-9 forward.
