Syracuse Commit Chris McCullough To Reclassify?

Seems to be all the rage these days.

Syracuse commit Chris McCullough told NBC Sports that he's trying to reclassify from the class of 2014 to 2013. “The chances are it could happen. I’d say about 70 percent,” he said this after his game on Saturday.

According to the NBC story, McCullough would have to complete quite a few classes to become eligible. “[I'll take those classes] at either Syracuse or a community college in the Bronx,” he told the NBC Sports corespondent.

It seems like his current head coach is behind his decision and would help in any way possible.

“He’s got a lot of work to do academically if he’s going to do that,” said Jason Smith. “I’d be happy to sit down with Syracuse and teach them about the sliding scale and how that works. He still has some work to do as far as initial eligibility."

McCullough is a Brewster Academy product, the same school that produced C.J. Fair and class of 2013 commit Ron Patterson, McCullough's current teammate. ESPN currently has him listed as a top 20 forward in the class of 2014 rankings. If he reclassifies, he would be a great addition at an already strong group, which includes one of the top point guards of the class, Tyler Ennis and highly touted forward Tyler Roberson.
