Northeast Guard Having Wonderful Season

Reporter Mike Sullivan has a player update on Northeast prospect Kyle Callahan, a guard prospect from the 2010 class ...

Kyle Callanan, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound guard prospect, is having another terrific season for his high school basketball team.

Callanan became Mt. Anthony's all-time leading scorer earlier this week. He followed up the achievement by scoring 28 points, seven three-pointers, and handing out eight assists.

Kyle, who was a McDonald's All American nominee, is highly considered by his AAU coach, Jim Hart of the Albany City Rocks. "Kyle redefines the combo guard in that he can be a pure point OR a pure two at the next level," said Hart.

Hart continued: "What he lacks in athleticism, he more than makes up for with an ultra tight handle, great court vision and the ability to hit NBA range three's with great consistency."

Callahan was a big part of the success the Albany City Rocks had over the spring and summer, competing with the likes of Will Regan, Tobias Harris, Taran Buie and Kameron Ritter.

"Kyle has excelled against the best competition in the country during the summers, but is still a relative unknown," said Hart. "Kyle is a leader for Mr. Basketball honors in his state and is the consummate team player. He will no doubt succeed at the low-mid division one level with his vast skill set." "He does whatever he can to help our team win," said Hart. "He is a smart player, a hard worker who knows the importance of taking care of the basketball and making good decisions with each possession."

Callanan, who handled some of the lead guard minutes for the Albany City Rocks boy's basketball AAU team over the past year at some of the most important tournaments and events, has put off any decision, according to Hart.

The hard nosed guard competes at Mount Anthony in the state of Vermont. He had previously generated college interest from some of the Ivy League programs, due to his skill level in the classroom too.

Hart previously mentioned interest in Holy Cross, Fairfield, and Maine.
