Northeast Guard Working Hard For D-1 Looks

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a detailed free look at the individual game of Northeast senior guard prospect Kyle Callahan, who spent several tournaments playing for the Albany City Rocks last summer ...

Kyle Callanan, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound guard prospect, has had a highlight filled season, prompting his AAU coach, Jim Hart of the Albany City Rocks, to praise his progress.

Earlier this season, Kyle became Mt. Anthony's all-time leading scorer. He followed up this tremendous honor by ripping off 28 points, including seven three-pointers, and handing out eight assists in a high school game.

Kyle, who was a McDonald's All American nominee for his state, has always been praised by Hart, one of the best program directors/head coaches in the AAU business.

WHAT JIM HART SAYS ABOUT KYLE CALLAHAN'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:

"Kyle redefines the combo guard in that he can be a pure point OR a pure two at the next level.

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.

"Kyle has excelled against the best competition in the country during the summers, but is still a relative unknown.

"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. 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."
