Michigan Guard Ray McCallum Gets Interest
The two teams have had a big rivalry the past two years with Detroit Country Day winning in the regular season, only to be upset in the playoffs the past two years.
Flint Powers Catholic upset the then No. 1-ranked Yellowjackets 48-35 in the Michigan High School Athletic Association boys basketball Class B quarterfinals last year after having beat them 45-42 in the regular season.
McCallum is expected to carry more of the offensive load this upcoming season with the graduation losses of Jordan Dumars, whose father Joe was a NBA standout and is at Central Florida, DaShonte Riley, who had gotten some Minnesota interest and is headed to Syracuse, Donnavan Kirk, who will play at Miami of Florida and Bennie Fowler, who will play football at Michigan State.
McCallum and junior big man Amir Williams will led the Yellowjackets, who are coached by legendary head man Kurt Keener, who coached former standouts such as Chris Webber. He averaged 16.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game.
McCallum is hearing from many of the country's top programs such as Detroit, Duke, Kansas, Louisville, Memphis, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Texas and UCLA.
McCallum helped lead Team Detroit to the Reebok Summer nationals titles last month as he scored eleven points and dished seven assists in their 56-48 win over D-One.
Minnesota watched McCallum in Las Vegas and Phoenix are hoping to get into the mix for the talented point guard. Minnesota assistant coach Vince Taylor is hoping that a relationship with the family will help the Gophers' cause.
Taylor's brother-in-law, Stu Jackson, was the head coach oat Wisconsin from 1992-94 and Ray McCallum was an assistant.
Titan fans are hoping that the talented point guard will play for his father and join sister Brittany Rae, who will be a sophomore this season.
