Class of 2020 wing Cashius McNeilly from Thornlea Secondary School (CAN) had an impressive 17 point performance against Redemption Christian Academy. McNeilly talked about his performance, the latest with his recruitment and more with Prep Circuit.
Q: You started things off rough, but turned it around in your second game here. What was it like finishing off this event the way you guys did?
A: “It was a hard first game of course against Brewster with how talented they are. We are a good team, they are a good team, but they were just better than us in the first game. In the second game we came out strong, but we got a little bit too confident and they came back. We eventually just finished out the game and executed all of our stuff.”
Q: People have been familiar with you for quite some time now. How would you say you have developed since eighth grade?
A: “I would say I’ve been maturing and working toward being effective on the next level and doing what I need to do to be successful.”
Q: Which schools have been the most active with you in your recruitment?
A: “Virginia Tech, Providence, Wisconsin, and Maryland.”
Q: Your uncle is an assistant coach at Virginia Tech so you obviously are very close with that program. What do you like about that option?
A: “It’s just like a family thing and it would be the most comfortable look so I obviously talk to them every day because of my uncle. We don’t really talk about it too much, but obviously, it’s there if I want to go there. A few players are from Toronto too so when I go there it’s cool to hang out with all of the players.”
Q: What do you like about Providence?
A: “We came here to Providence a few times. The last time I came here we went on a tour to Providence and I’ve just been talking to the coaches and we have a strong relationship.”
Q: What stands out about Wisconsin?
A: “Wisconsin does a good job of keeping in contact with me. They don’t talk to me as much as the other two, but we still talk here and there.”
Q: How is your relationship with Maryland?
A: “We have a good relationship with Maryland especially with us having the Under Armour connection. We send a lot of kids there so we have a good connection with them.”
Q: When are you looking to take the next step with the recruiting process?
A: “I’m going to go through AAU season and see what happens. From there I’ll talk to my coaches and family and decide after that.”
Q: What is going to separate one school from the rest?
A: “A good fit for me and wherever I feel like I’d fit in the most.”
