Reports: Syracuse freshman Chris McCullough to enter the NBA Draft

2 Comments

Chris McCullough will forgo the remainder of his collegiate eligibility to enter his name in the 2015 NBA Draft, according to multiple reports on Thursday.

RealGM.com was the first to report the news.

McCullough is a 6-foot-9 with terrific length and athleticism, and after a terrific start to his freshman season, McCullough was considered by most to be a likely first round pick. But in mid-January, McCullough tore his ACL after an awkward landing, an injury that ended his season and will likely keep him out until the beginning of next year.

He ended the season averaging 9.3 points, 6.9 boards, 2.1 blocks and 1.7 steals.

Draft Express currently projects McCullough as the No. 21 pick in the 2016 draft.
