Calliste Takes Himself off The Board

The MVP of the adidas Super 64 is Horizon League bound. Over the weekend, guard Jason Calliste found his future college destination.

When you know, you know. Jason Calliste, after looking at a handful of mid-major options that included Detroit and Chattanooga, picked Ray McCallum's program.

The 6-foot-2 combo guard, a native of Canada, was the MVP for Grassroots Canada when it won the adidas Super 64 last summer.

He liked (Detroit) and the fact that it's close to home," Quality Education coach Isaac Pitts said. "His mom hasn't seen him play in a long time. Detroit was there from the start and they called and came to see him a lot."

Calliste, a shooting guard who has worked on his point man skills as a senior, wanted to wait until the spring period to decide. Detroit offered the correct fit and feel. "We talked about playing right away and being a big fish in a little pond. He said he thought it fit him and had everything that he was looking for."
