Report: Syracuse Recruit Chris McCullough Dismissed From Brewster Academy

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

One of Syracuse's biggest recruiting gets in recent memory has found himself in a bind, as he has been dismissed from his prep school days before he can sign his National Letter of Intent.

One of Syracuse basketball's biggest recruiting gets since possibly Carmelo Anthony -- Class of 2014, five-star forward Chris McCullough -- has been dismissed from his prep school, Brewster Academy, for a violation of school rules.

There are no reports on what exactly McCullough did, but his actions have put him in a tough spot as he will need to find a new prep school to take him in and allow him to finish out his academics, which need to be up to par if he wants to play for the Orange next year.

The news, first reported by ESPN's Jeff Goodman, comes just days before the 6-foot-9 recruit was expected to sign his National Letter of Intent to play at SU. The early signing period for '14 commits is Nov. 13.

McCullough has already claimed responsibility for his mistake on Twitter and called the incident a minor setback.

SNY.TV's Adam Zagoria reached McCullough's former head coach, Jason Smith, who confirmed McCullough's dismissal and said via text: "I hope Chris will be successful in the future."

McCullough, who is projected to be a possible one-and-done candidate, is expected to head a recruiting class that also features a verbal commitment from four-star point guard Kaleb Joseph.
