High School Recruit

Liam McNeeley- Montverde Academy (Montverde, Fla.)

Most likely, Calipari will bring most of his high school prospects from Kentucky to Arkansas. However, the No. 15 per 247Sports composite, Liam McNeeley, decommitted from Indiana shortly after Calipari moved to Arkansas, and Coach Calipari has reportedly already reached out to him.

247Sports' director of scouting, Adam Finkelstein, wrote this about McNeeley,

"Liam McNeeley has one of the best combinations of skill and basketball acumen in the national class. He came up the ranks known as a shooter – and for good reason as he has clean mechanics, a compact release, and shot over 40% from behind the three-point line in both the NIBC and EYBL seasons – but he’s far more versatile than just a specialist...

Overall, McNeeley may not have the ideal physical measurables of a prototypical five-star prospect, but he is one of the most consistently productive and reliable basketball players in the class."
