With the college basketball offseason underway, the majority of the chatter is surrounding the transfer portal. However, there is still a Kansas Jayhawks recruiting target who has not committed out of high school. Liam McNeeley is looking for a new team after asking out of his NLI from Indiana last month.

It is rather late for a recruit to make a decision, but a recent update by ESPN's Paul Biancardi gave fans a general timeline for McNeeley's process. He told ESPN that he had been in contact with Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, Michigan, and UConn, and is looking to participate in college visits after Apr. 21.

Kansas basketball target Liam McNeeley resuming recruiting process soon

In a little over a week, McNeeley will begin focusing on his recruiting process again. He played in the McDonald's All-American game earlier this month, won the Chipotle Nationals with his high school team Montverde Academy, and will also appear in the Jordan Brand Classic.

Kansas is the only school McNeeley mentioned that he was considering last year before his first recruiting process. Still, now that other schools have come into play, there is more competition to land the 6-foot-7 wing.

It is unknown whether McNeeley would take a trip to the KU campus again. He took an official visit to Lawrence in September but chose Indiana over Kansas. The Jayhawks were the initial frontrunners to land him, but the situation has become more cloudy in recent weeks.

The 5-star prospect is one of the best shooters in the 2024 class. His decision could depend on whether Johnny Furphy will return to school or stay in the NBA Draft, as they both have similar play styles. Regardless, Bill Self has been making good use of the transfer portal and already secured a top-five recruiting class, so it will be interesting to see how this plays out.
