As I continue to say it’s almost impossible to know every talented high school basketball player in this country. Jamie Shaw of Absolutely Basketball Company, is an American basketball scout. Mr Shaw covers a lot of players in the southeast region. It’s extremely important for me to follow men like Mr Shaw, he gives in-depth information on players within his region.
2022 6’4” shooting guard Isaac Mckneely out of (Poca high school) West Virginia, is definitely a player I find very intriguing. Mr. Mckneely is a player i’m quite sure many on the West Coast are not familiar with. As I continue to survey the landscape of high school basketball, the more I become educated on the level of play that exist in different regions.
I came across some footage put out by Absolute Basketball Company on Mr. Mckneely in a pickup game. Isaac was extremely effective throughout the game; but, I need to see more game footage. I looked up a full game on Isaac against the number one team in the state of West Virginia. I have to say Isaac Mckneely is the real deal.
At 6’4” Isaac has good size at the shooting guard position. He’s athletic & skilled; he can manufacture shots in volume. Isaac can handle the ball in transition and finish above the rim. Isaac plays with pace and can finish on all three levels.
What makes Isaac special is his ability to shoot the ball. And athletic perimeter performer; a big game shooter with the ability to step out beyond the arc and knockdown shots. He also has a nice mid range game. As he continues to develop as a player defensively he will become better.
At the current moment 24/7 sports has Isaac Nationally rank #46 and the number 1 player in West Virginia. He’s being recruited by North Carolina State, Virginia, West Virginia, Indiana, Xavier, and Davison just to name a few.
He’s definitely a player to watch!
