Pitt BB Recruiting

Pitt Basketball Lands Commitment From Former 4-Star Guard Cashius McNeilly

Published

Jeff Capel has added another perimeter shooter to his roster.

Following an official visit this week, transfer guard Cashius McNeilly announced Friday night on Instagram that he has committed to Pitt. McNeilly (6-foot-4) will have three years of athletic eligibility remaining.

“I would like to thank the entire Pitt basketball program for hosting my family and I this past week for a visit,” said McNeilly. “Thank you to everyone that helped me throughout this process and that have supported me from the start. I believe that everything that has happened over the past few years have led me to this opportunity and after talking with my family, I have decided to commit to Pitt and join the Panthers next season.”

McNeilly was a four-star shooting guard from Ontario, Canada in the Class of 2019. He originally committed to Texas A&M coming out of high school. After redshirting his freshman season due to an injury and then opting to sit out last season because of COVID-19, McNeilly then made the decision to transfer to TCU and followed his uncle, Jamie McNeilly, who was an assistant coach at Texas A&M but left to join Jamie Dixon and TCU.

However, before the fall semester started, McNeilly decided TCU wasn’t for him and is currently attending Northern Oklahoma College (JUCO). Following his season, McNeilly committed to Danny Manning and Maryland but once Manning was let go, McNeilly opened back up his recruitment in April.

Capel has added shooters to this season’s roster, with former Marquette guard Greg Elliott and McNeilly, who’s known as an elite three-point shooter.

If he chooses to use it, Capel still has one more scholarship that he can use for the upcoming season.

You really have to love what capel has done this offseason.

I’m not sure how they will all mend together especially with a coach as shaky as capel but atleast Pitt has got some talent and given the program a chance next season.

Did they change the rules on how many official visits a school can host every two years? I remember HC Capel remarking how limited he was the first year as many had been used up. With the new transfer rules, it seems like all schools need more.

Having an experienced back court is going to make a world of difference this season. To have playmakers that can penetrate and pass the ball should open the floor and allow the frontline to attack the offensive boards. This team should be improved offensively.

Prefer perimeter defenders first. Mo was taking to many fouls for last year’s olay defense. MO’s gone. Hughley and the twins aren’t shot blockers.
