Elite high school forward Liam McNeeley blogs about new interest from Duke, Baylor, Indiana, Disney’s Obi-Wan Kenobi

Liam McNeeley is one of the top players in the 2024 class and recently led John Paul II (Plano, Texas) to a state title. Now, McNeeley, who has already won a gold medal with USA Basketball, is dominating the competition in the Nike EYBL. That consistency has everyone from Stanford, Duke, Kansas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Baylor, among many others, all giving chase. Now he’s has agreed to give Sports Illustrated exclusive access into his world by chronicling his hoops and personal life in a blog.

What’s up world, it’s Liam and I’m back here with my blog!

Well, we finished up our second session in the Nike EYBL this past weekend and, even though we didn’t do as well as we had hoped, this is my favorite time of year.

So far in EYBL, I have averaged 22 points and eight rebounds. One of the main areas I’m really focusing on is my on-ball defense. I want to pressure those smaller guards and force more turnovers.

I’m also working on gaining weight and getting stronger too. Right now, I’m up to 200 pounds, but I want to get up to 215 or 220.

It’s been fun seeing the coaches out at the events! I always love to see them on the sidelines, but I try and remember to stay focused and not let that affect me.
