It was time.
On Sunday, 5-star forward Liam McNeeley, from Montverde Academy, announced his commitment to the Indiana Hoosiers. McNeeley chose Indiana over Kansas, and he held offers from a multitude of high-major schools, including Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, LSU, and Michigan.
McNeeley becomes the first member of Mike Woodson’s 2024 recruiting class, and the third five-star high school player to join Indiana in the Woodson era, after Mackenzie Mgbako and Jalen Hood-Schifino. Five-star high school recruit Kel’el Ware joined Indiana in the offseason from the transfer portal.
McNeeley hails from Richardson, Texas, and played high school ball at John Paul II HS in Plano, before moving to Montverde. He joins Hood-Schifino and Malik Reneau in the Montverde pipeline from Florida to Bloomington, Indiana.
247Sports’ analyst Adam Finkelstein, in addition to the above, also said McNeeley “has one of the best combinations of skill and basketball acumen in the national class.”
During his commitment on ESPN and ESPN+, McNeeley mentioned his pride in his family’s basketball lineage, citing that his grandfather played at TCU, his mother played at Rice, and his uncle played at SMU and Baylor.
He followed up by mentioning that he will reach out to Montverde teammate Derik Queen and NY guard Boogie Fland.
Some of McNeeley’s highlights are included below.
