Today is the first day of the early November signing period, and Indiana has announced 2024 5-star forward Liam McNeeley has signed his national letter of intent.
IU head coach Mike Woodson released a statement on the Montverde Academy product.
“Liam is a very smart basketball player who will bring leadership, skill, and high-level shooting to our ball club,” Woodson said. “He is a selfless player that will do everything he can to help us win games. His versatility and shooting ability really stood out to our staff throughout the recruiting process. He plays the game the right way, he is a winner, and now he is a Hoosier.”
The 6-7 small forward is the fourth-highest rated recruit in program history, according to 247Sports. He ranks behind former lottery picks Romeo Langford (14th overall by Boston in 2019) and Noah Vonleh (9th overall by Charlotte in 2014), and current Hoosier freshman forward Mackenzie Mgbako.
From Richardson, Texas, McNeeley is a consensus 5-star and top-15 nationally-ranked recruit.
He led Montverde in scoring at 12.4 points per contest during his junior season, and also contributed 4.0 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 1.0 steal per game in 18.4 minutes per contest.
Playing against elite national competition, McNeeley made 103-of-207 (49.8%) of his shots from the floor, 52-of-116 (44.8%) from the 3-point line, and 52-of-62 (83.9%) from the free throw line.
On the Nike EYBL spring and summer circuit, he totaled 16.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 2.1 assists for the Florida Rebels on 37.5% shooting from the 3-point line
Before transferring to Montverde, McNeeley averaged 17 points, nine rebounds, five assists, two steals, and two blocks per game as a sophomore at John Paul II and won the TAPPS 6A state title in his second high school season.
