"Any conversation about Mike begins with what a great family he has," Majerus said. "His sister, Angel, graduated from Northern Illinois University, so obviously there is a great academic influence in the home. Mike comes to Saint Louis University as an outstanding student. The conversation then turns to perhaps one of the finest coaches in the state of Illinois, Terry Head. Mike is fundamentally sound and a great competitor, and he understands how to play the game because of Coach Head."
McCall is the No. 6 senior in the state of Illinois according to ChicagoHoops.com, and he is ranked by Hoops Report as a "Top 10 Prospect." As a junior, he averaged 14.3 points, five assists, 2.9 rebounds and 2.3 steals per game. McCall helped lead Foreman to a 20-7 record. He hit at least one 3-pointer in all but one game last season and converted 44 percent from beyond the arc. Against North Grand, McCall drained seven 3-pointers en route to a season-high 25 points.
"Both young men (Dwayne Evans and Mike McCall) whom we have signed will make significant contributions to our program," Majerus said. "We feel that they will be an upgrade in talent, and we are confident they will do extremely well as students and become SLU favorites due to their personality and academic acumen as well as for the skill set and hustle they bring to the court. They are already good friends and it is easy to see why, given their love for the game and competitive spirit."
