Members of Miami’s coaching staff traveled to Atlanta during the weekend of April 21-23 to evaluate and recruit some of the best high school basketball talents that the esteemed Nike EYBL circuit has to offer.

One player that UM assistant coach D.J. Irving watched multiple times was 2025 guard Trey McKenney, who was playing up an age division with Meanstreets 17U.

McKenney led the Chicago-based EYBL team in scoring, averaging 17 points per game.

As for UM’s recruiting pursuit, McKenney told LifeWallet Sports that the Hurricanes “have been really heavy on me … I feel like I’m building a great relationship with them.”

Miami offered McKenney on Jan. 15, 2023.

“Well of course they made the Final Four but I like Miami because just the way they get up and do. They let you play freely,” McKenney added about the ‘Canes.

The St. Mary’s (Mich.) Prep product also said that Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan State, UCLA and USC are the schools that are recruiting him the most. He also holds offers from other high-major schools like Illinois, Indiana and Ohio State,

Given that he has two more high school seasons left, McKenney still has a lot of time before he has to decide what college to attend, but the 6-foot-4 guard already has an idea of the factors that will play into this important decision.

“Just having a bond, them having a bond with my family and just being able to trust the head coach,” McKenney said. “And also, just being able to prove my game and hopefully then get me to where I dream of being, the NBA level.”
