Syracuse Basketball Recruiting: Catching Up With Chris McCullough & Kaleb Joseph

What are Syracuse's 2014 recruits up to as they finish up their high school careers?


We're still neck-deep in the 2013-2014 Syracuse Orange basketball season, but it never hurts to take a peak into the future to see what the future Oranges are up to.

6'9" forward Chris McCullough spent the year leading IMG Academy (Bradenton, FL) to a 24-2 record. The team was invited to the exclusive National Prep Championship where they made it to the semis.


Meanwhile, 6'2" guard Kaleb Joseph led Cushing Academy to a 21-6 record during the season. In the New England Prep School Athletic Conference Tournament, he led Cushing to the championship for the second-consecutive season.


You'll be glad to hear that both were named high school All-Americans by HoopScoop, which hopefully is a good thing. McCullough made HoopScoop's third-team while Joseph made HoopScoop's sixth team. The point is, HoopScoop has a lot of All-American teams.

The next big thing for McCullough will be the Jordan Brand Classic high school all-star game on April 18. The game will be played in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and feature some of the top high school talent in the nation.

Joseph and 2015 Syracuse verbal commitment Tyler Lydon will get a chance to play together this weekend when they participate in the first annual 2eZ Charity All-Star Game in Rhode Island.

Finally, though this has nothing to do with their playing ability, McCullough recently went on record as saying he thinks Tyler Ennis will return to Syracuse next season. At least, that he hasn't made up his mind yet. Whether he does or doesn't, it looks like the future is in very capable hands.
