Chase McCarty signs NLI with Houston Cougars Men's Basketball
POSTED: November 9, 2023 -- 1:55 p.m. CT
Houston Cougars Men's Basketball Head Coach Kelvin Sampson announced the signing of Chase McCarty to a National Letter of Intent (NLI) Thursday.
McCarty, 6'6", 200, will compete as a freshman with the Cougars in 2024-25 and have four years of eligibility.
Playing for Coach Sean McAloon at IMG Academy in 2023-24 and for Coach Winfred Jordan of the Atlanta Express AAU program, McCarty was a 4-star recruit by Rivals, 247Sports and ESPN and was listed as the #59 recruit nationally by Rivals.
McCarty ranked at 73rd in the country by 247Sports and ranked 94th in the ESPN 100. McCarty chose Houston over Georgia Tech, Kansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Missouri and Texas Tech.
"Chase has been groomed for this for a long time. He has great size...big chest, wide shoulders, long arms. His strength is making open shots. He can really shoot. He is a prototypical wing. He is a 6-foot-6, big strong wing, who can make shots and rebound," Sampson said. "I am looking forward to developing his entire game. There is a lot to Chase. He is only scratching the surface."
During the summer, he averaged 20.0 points per game for Atlanta Express and won the 3-point shooting championship at Under Armour's Elite 24 in August.
As a junior in 2022-23 at Westminster Christian (Ala.), McCarty led the team to the Class 4A State Championship Game and was a finalist for the Class 4A Player of the Year after averaging 23.7 points and 6.5 rebounds per game.
