It’s a heck of a day for basketball in the city of Detroit. The Pistons are about to wrap up a season filled with complete garbage and the University of Detroit Mercy Titans just received a commitment from their highest profile recruit ever. EVER. Ray McCallum, Jr, son of Ray Sr. (duh), the current UDM coach announced this afternoon on espnu that he will sign with the Titans.
McCallum, a Detroit Country Day senior guard, chose UDM over Arizona, UCLA and Florida. There have been whispers around campus that junior forward Xavier Keeling may transfer. I hope that isn’t true, but that just means more shots for guys who can fill it up – Jr., Chase Simon and Eli Holman, should X choose to leave.
Bring on the criticism that he should have chosen a bigger, power conference school so he’d get more attention from NBA scouts. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves people, but where’d Dwyane Wade go? What about Steph Curry? Steve Nash? Your argument is out the window.
Junior made a great choice. Here’s hoping it works out well for him.
