|Chris McCullough: Rocket-Rise has already begun|
C-Mac & Salisbury ready to ride- Up in the Northwestern corner of Connecticut, Salisbury School Head Coach Jeff Ruskin has an NYC/Maryland flavored ball-club that heads into the deep-freeze as a NEPSAC Class A favorite. Leading the way for the Crimson Knights will be super prospect Chris McCullough, a long, athletic, 6'9 sophomore from NYC who is ranked #10 in the Class of 2014 by ESPN. The second forward spot will be occupied by another high-profile athlete in junior Samuel Dingba, a 6'6 wing forward who, according to Ruskin, is drawing interest from the ACC, Ivy, Big East, and A-10. Joining C-Mac and Dingba on the Salisbury front-line will be senior Myles Jones, a 6'5 power forward from Maryland who is committed to play lacrosse at Duke...Running the show from the point for the Crimson Knights will be another Maryland-native in senior Ryan Frazier, a 6'0 floor general who is committed to Bucknell. Joining Frazier in Salisbury's deep back-court stable will be Brandon Hedley, Glen Baral, and Mike Geanellis. Hedley is a talented 5'11 senior lead-guard who last year led Blake HS to the Maryland State Championship game. Baral is a 6'4 junior shooting guard who was an all-league player at St. Mary’s HS in Oakland, CA last year. He is ranked #12 in Northern California by NorCal Preps.com, and according to Ruskin, is being recruited by Patriot and Ivy League teams, plus UC-Irvine and Davis. And lastly, 6’4 junior shooting guard Mike Geanellis was the leading scorer at Proctor Academy last year and he's also a talented baseball prospect who is seeing D1 recruitment. Salisbury gets their season tomorrow when they visit Avon Old Farms, and then on Sunday, the Crimson Knights will square off against Cushing Academy in a showdown at the Hoop Mountain Prep Classic.
