Syracuse Orange basketball secures commitment from 5-star forward

Jim Boeheim and the Orange is on a roll.

I'm not talking about the back to back exhibition wins of at least 36 points, but rather on the recruiting trail.

The Orange received its fourth verbal commitment in the past month on Monday, and the latest might just be the most impressive.

It comes from Class of 2014 forward Chris McCullough, he's a 5-star center according to our friends at Cuse Confidential and his commitment follows that of his teammate at Brewster Academy (NH) Ron Patterson.

McCullough is originally from the Bronx, and is a force to be reckon with. He's just a junior in high school, but he already stands 6'10" tall and checks in at 225 lbs.

He's the first commit for the Orange in the Class of 2014, meaning, he won't be on the SU hill until 2 years from now.
