IU makes the final six for West Virginia transfer shooting guard Sean McNeil

Indiana’s quest for more scoring pop from the wings has seemingly resonated to some extent with West Virginia transfer Sean McNeil.

IU was one of the first schools to reach out to McNeil when he put his name in the portal a couple weeks ago, and they will be one of the six schools he gives final consideration to for his final season of college eligibility.

The 6-foot-3 shooting guard from Union, Ky. told CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein he has a final six of Indiana, Ohio State, Virginia, Louisville, Cincinnati and Texas Tech.

McNeil averaged 12.2 points per game in each of the past two seasons and shot 37 and 39-percent from three during those two years. He averaged 31.5 minutes per game over the last two seasons and started 55 times. McNeil is also a career 86.1 percent free throw shooter.

Indiana’s connections to McNeil go back to his time as a JUCO prospect in 2019 when he played for Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio.

Indiana currently has one available scholarship on its 2022-23 roster, but that is a very fluid situation as the staff awaits stay-or-go decisions by multiple players and pursues other transfer portal and class of 2022 prospects.
