I said not too long ago that the LeBroning of college basketball is manifesting itself in these "package deals" that recruits are starting to put together in an attempt to emulate the state of the NBA. While I'm not against such practices because, you know, whatever, I'm especially not against it when some of the nation's top recruits are thinking about packaging themselves up to play for the Syracuse Orange.

Per SNY's Adam Zagoria...

Chris McCullough, a 6-foot-10 2014 forward from The Bronx, told SNY.tv exclusively that he has talked with several fellow New York stars about playing together for Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim.

"We talked about it twice already, me, Jermaine [Lawrence] and Isaiah [Whitehead]. We said it would be a good fit for all three of us," McCullough said after going for 14 points, 8 rebounds, 2 blocks, 2 assists and 1 steal in team NYC’s 87-86 loss to team USA Saturday night in the Big Strick Classic at City College of New York.

For those keeping score...

Chris McCullough - No. 17 (ESPNU); No. 13 (Scout)

Jermaine Lawrence - No. 25 (ESPNU); No. 15 (Scout.com)

Isaiah Whitehead - No. 43 (ESPNU); No. 31 (Scout)

So that's a nice little triple play right there.

Both McCullough and Whitehead will visit Syracuse August 29th and take part in the Orange's elite camp. Also in attendance will be Tyler Ennis, who is high on SU's list.

If all three of those guys actually come here...and you add Ennis to the list...well, you've got something pretty special there. As always, we'll wait and see...
