Like Smith, McCallum was a 2010 McDonald's All-American. Unlike Smith, he logs a ton of minutes. McCallum has stepped effortlessly into the scoring point guard role for the Titans, sporting a high assist rate for a team that doesn't often do assists.

McCallum poses little threat from the perimeter but he's getting the most out of what he brings to the table for his father, coach Ray McCallum, Sr.
