The 6-7, 215 lb. junior college transfer, who is a native of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, played for Indian Hills junior college this season. As a sophomore at Indian Hills, McCallum averaged 11.8 points and 6.3 rebounds per game.
“We are thrilled to announce the addition of Tre’Darius McCallum to our basketball program,” said DePaul coach Dave Leitao. “Tre is a versatile forward who can impact the game in many different ways whether that be scoring, rebounding or defending. We love that he has the skill to play multiple positions on the offensive end, but also possesses the size and athleticism to defend both post and perimeter players. He shot 40-plus percent from three this season so he gives us another guy that can stretch the defense with his ability to shoot the ball.”
McCallum helped Indian Hills achieve a ranking of sixth in the nation and advance to the NJCAA tournament in Hutchinson, Kansas this season.
“He comes to us from an outstanding junior college program where he has been very well coached by Hank Plona and Josh Sash,” said Leitao. “The more we watched him and got to know him in the recruiting process, we really felt his game and personality fit what we were looking for. We welcome Tre and his family to DePaul and look forward to working with him the next two years.”
