Kansas Basketball Takeaway No. 2: A Wilson-like Leap for Kevin McCullar Could Propel This Team to New Heights
Jalen Wilson was the third or fourth option as a junior before launching himself to stardom (Big 12 POTY and All-American) in his senior season. McCullar has a chance to have a nearly identical trajectory this year after being the third or fourth option on last year’s team.
While I don’t project quite the same leap for McCullar due to him having an All-American teammate beside him, if he can get closer to the 15-point-per-game range while also improving his perimeter shooting, he could form an incredibly potent duo alongside Dickinson.
Kansas has had some big-time hits in the transfer portal over the past handful of years (Remy Martin, Malik Newman, Dedric Lawson), and McCullar has a real chance to be one of the best on the list if he puts together another solid season in 2023.
