McKneely holds offers from Marshall, Davidson, Liberty, Robert Morris, Xavier and now West Virginia.
According Poca High School’s Head Coach Allen Osborne, “He’s not a one-trick pony. He can shoot it. He can put it on the floor. His defense is improving. I think by the time he is a senior, he’s going to be very, very special.”
McKneely, who only currently weighs approximately 160 pounds, is a high school Sophomore and has plenty of room to grow and get stronger, but he has all the skills to play at high level in a tough conference like the Big 12. According to Next Up Recruits, “ Isaac has a great shot with good form. Coupled with a high IQ and the ability to handle the ball, Isaac has an advanced offensive game for his age. He looks to be one of the top 2022s in the state of West Virginia.”
McKneely has formed a relationship with WVU Head Coach Bob Huggins and has visited Coliseum to see the Mountaineers play. McKneely called his trip to Morgantown earlier in the year “amazing.” It appears that Bob Huggins landing this talented in-state player is very, very likely.
