Wanger HS (TX) shooting guard Kevin McCullar had a breakout Spring/Summer, picking up nearly 10 offers. Hit the jump to get Kevin’s thoughts on his play with YIIS and where he stands with his recruitment.
The versatile guard made a splash on the Adidas circuit showing tremendous ability as a three level scorer that can break a defender down off the dribble before finishing at the rim or knocking down perimeter shots.
“My biggest strengths are finishing around the rim and being able to knock down outside shots. I can create my own shots off the dribble and create opportunities for others, guard multiple positions, also post smaller guards and a lot of college coaches say my IQ is high.”

A relatively unknown prospect prior to this Spring, McCullar used the big stage to establish himself as one of the very best perimeter players in the country.
“It was my first time on the circuit and I enjoyed competing on that level and I was able to start showing college coaches what I could do.”
On the recruiting trail, Kevin quickly transitioned from under the radar to a hot commodity for a plethora of college programs. In the past 6 months alone, Kevin has picked up offers from Texas Tech, Houston, Oklahoma, Kansas State, Tulsa, LA Tech, UTSA, North Texas, and Northern Colorado.
It appears to only be a matter of time before McCullar’s recruitment goes national, as high-major colleges from the Midwest and West Coast are also keeping tabs.
“I’m receiving interest from Michigan, Texas, Baylor, Stanford, Texas A&M, Minnesota, Colorado, SMU and TCU.”
Michigan in particular seems to be a program that fits Kevin’s style of play as a lengthy guard with a good looking stroke from the perimeter. The Wolverines are hoping to land a visit some time in the near future.
“They really want me to come take an unofficial visit and check out everything and I’m really just starting to build a relationship with the coaches there.”
McCullar had an active Summer on the visit trail, where he took visits to Oklahoma, Tulsa, North Texas and UTSA. He also completed trips to Texas Tech and Houston very recently. Kevin will be taking visits to SEC and Big 12 programs in the very near future as well.
“I will be taking a visit to Texas A&M this weekend and Kansas State in a couple of weekends.”
While a commitment is far down the road, the ability to get into the rotation as an underclassmen looms large in his decision making process.”
“Somewhere where I can make an impact early and the coach has a good vision for me.”
On the court, McCullar continues to work on all facets of his game and takes pride in being a multi-dimensional player.
“I’m really just trying to improve as an all around player and work on every part of my game to continue and be more versatile.”
Although the 2019 Endless Motor Top 200 has not been released, Kevin appears to a strong candidate to enter the top 100. His ability to score from multiple spots on the court, either off the dribble or the catch, makes him one of the most potent offensive prospects in the country.
