Demetrius Calip II of ‘Last Chance U’ commits to Morehouse

ATLANTA (BVM) – Former East Los Angeles College guard Demetrius Calip II rose to fame through his appearance in the second season of Netflix’s “Last Chance U: Basketball” which highlights a junior college basketball program for an entire season. Calip, who is known by his nickname DC in the show, was heavily featured in the show thanks to his large personality and even larger style of play.

After a successful career with the Huskies program, Calip revealed his next move on Monday. The 6-foot-4, 170-pound guard announced his commitment to Division II Morehouse College, an HBCU located in Atlanta.

Last season, Calip had a strong year for ELAC. As a sophomore, Calip averaged 8.8 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists over 13.4 minutes across 26 games. The guard was also an effective shooter, shooting 50.3% from the field and 40.8% from beyond the arc. His play helped the Huskies to one of their best seasons in program history, making it to the California Community College Athletic Association Final Four, and finishing the year with a 27-4 record.

The Maroon Tigers had a solid season last year, finishing the campaign with an 18-10 record and a 14-7 record in the conference, good for the top spot in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference East division. However, this did not end in a postseason appearance as Morehouse was ousted in the SIAC tournament semifinals.

Calip knows a thing or two about success at the collegiate level. His father, Demetrius Calip, helped the Michigan Wolverines win the Division I national championship in 1989. He also led Michigan in scoring during his senior year in 1990-91. Now, DC will look to find similar success with his Maroon Tigers team.

After a successful run on “Last Chance U”, DC now gets to make the most of his last chance at Morehouse. Given the program around him, DC should excel with his new team and take advantage of his newest opportunity.
