Big things are expected of incoming freshman Chris McCullough.
The nation's No. 21 recruit per 247's composite ranking, McCullough is in the running for one of the starting forward spots. He's also a potential one-and-done player for the Orange, so his impact will surely be felt early.
That is, if he's allowed to play. As you may recall, McCullough was kicked out of his original prep school back in November. He spent some time in limbo before finding a home at IMG Academy in Florida.
Per McCullough's Twitter account, he finished the school year on good terms academically (beware of some potential NSFW language in the replies). Therefore, he should be ready to go once he arrives at Syracuse.
But we all know how the NCAA is. They make a lot of decisions that don't make a lot of sense. But every now and then, they do something that shows they do have a heart after all.
For now, everything is groovy with regard to McCullough's academic standing. Syracuse fans should nonetheless be on the lookout to make sure nothing changes. Considering the overhaul the roster has already undergone, McCullough missing any time would make things that much more difficult.
