Five-star freshman Liam McNeeley commits to UConn

liam mcneeley

Five-star wing Liam McNeeley, one of the best available high school prospects in the Class of 2024, announced Friday he will join two-time defending champion UConn.

“I’m dialed in from Storrs,” McNeeley said on social media, confirming multiple reports that he had committed to Dan Hurley and the Huskies.

McNeeley is ranked the No. 18 overall prospect in his class by the 247Sports composite. He decommitted from Indiana last month.

The native of Texas also considered Alabama, Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan and other schools.

“It felt like a perfect fit,” McNeeley told ESPN. “Coach Hurley is a hard-nosed coach. That’s the kind of coach I thrive under. The offensive system they run is perfect for my game. The culture of the team. The sets they run. They are going to help me get better on both sides of the ball. The whole coaching staff are good people.”

The McDonald’s All-American is a sharpshooter who reportedly made 45 percent of his 3-pointers as a high school senior.

He will help fill the vacancy left by Tristen Newton and Cam Spencer, two of UConn’s starters last year who have each run out of college eligibility. Spencer shot 44 percent from deep and Newton scored a team-high 15.1 points per game.
