Syracuse freshman forward Chris McCullough will enter the NBA draft.
McCullough, 20, tore the ACL in his right knee in January and missed the rest of the season. In 16 games last season, the 6'10" forward averaged 9.3 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.1 blocks.
He was the No. 19 ranked player in the country coming out of high school, according to Rivals.
In his most recent NBA draft Big Board, Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix did not have McCullough in his top 20.
Last month, the NCAA announced a nine-game suspension for Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim and took away 12 scholarships over the next four years.
Syracuse finished 18-13 and served a self-imposed ban on all postseason play.
