Going into his junior season, 2022 guard RayShun McCullar is looking to further prove why he’s a top option in the state of Louisiana, but also deserving of more attention from programs nationally. The 6’1 point guard averaged 17 points and 8 assists, during his sophomore season, including a 20-point double-double against 2020 LSU commit Jalen Cook. Despite strong performances on the court, schools outside of state lines have not taken much notice of the talented player. With offers from Grabmbling State, the University of New Orleans, Northwestern State, McNeese State, Louisiana-Lafayette and Louisiana Tech, McCullar is looking to make an impression in neighboring states as well. The only program to offer from outside the state is SMU (Houston, Baylor and Texas Tech are showing interest), who have a track record of utilizing guards very well.
Outside the scope of his stats and game averages, McCullar has a lot to contribute with his skillset that programs should envy and seek to have. As a high-energy player, McCullar has to be accounted for at all times of a contest. He is lethal with the ball in his hands and can get the job done in multiple ways that keep defenses guessing how he will attack. The obvious trait that stands out on film for McCullar is his overall creativity on the offensive end. He sees the floor well and can set up his attack angles ahead of time to compliment his speed working towards his desired spots.
