"The workout went good," McCullough recalled. "We did a few drills and shooting drills. Nothing too serious. But it feels good knowing your future head coach is in the gym watching you workout."
After the workout, the two were able to spend some time talking. They discussed many things, including the retirement rumors. Boeheim put those to rest, assuring McCullough he would be his coach when he arrives on campus.
"We talked about who's leaving this year and how many years he's got left to coach," McCullough explained. "He said I only need one year there and I'm going to hopefully do the hard work that will take me there. Then he told me Ron is going to come in and play quality minutes.
"He said he has two years left and that he wants to coach me."
The two also discussed the possibility of winning a national championship while McCullough is Orange. In the past, Boeheim has told McCullough he's the best player Syracuse has recruited since Carmelo Anthony.
"Yeah we talked about it," McCullough admitted. "He said that we have a good group. Good enough to win a national championship. He said Ennis will still be there."
Syracuse will have the talent to compete for a national championship in each of the next two years. The combination of Ennis and McCullough in 2014 has the potential to be one of the best in the country.
