He was "one of the most highly-recruited players in school history" and passed on scholarship offers from schools such as UCLA, Arizona, Oklahoma and Florida.In 2010–11, he became the first player from the University of Detroit to make an all-Horizon League Team as a freshman, where he earned second team honors. McCallum led his team in scoring (13.5) assists (4.9 apg) and total steals (54). CollegeInsider.com named him to their Freshman All-America squad, and his 157 assists during the regular season was second in the NCAA among freshmen.
