Northeast Guard Has Some D-1 Interest

Reporter Mike Sullivan has a free look at the individual game of Kyle Callahan, a Northeast prospect who competes in the backcourt for his high school team ...

Kyle Callanan, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound guard prospect, had a solid senior season, according to his AAU coach, Jim Hart of the Albany City Rocks.

Earlier this season, Kyle vaulted to to the top of the Mt. Anthony's all-time leading scorer list. Callanan continued his mid season momentum with a game of 28 points, including seven three-pointers, and handing out eight assists.

Kyle, who was a McDonald's All American nominee from the state of Vermont, has always been a player that Hart loved to coach, due to Kyle's ability to take care of the basketball.

WHAT ALBANY CITY ROCKS PROGRAM DIRECTOR/HEAD COACH 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."
