McNeil, 6'3", comes to UH as a transfer from LSU. She redshirted the 2021-22 season (her freshman season) after tearing her ACL during the preseason. She attended Rockwall-Heath High School in Rockwall, Texas.
McNeil, one of the top prospects out of Texas, was ranked the No. 18 forward in her class nationally by ESPNU HoopGurlz and is No. 139 in the World Exposure Report… Named the Texas 10-6A Defensive MVP in 2021 on the All-District Team… She averaged nine points, nine rebounds, five assists and three blocks per game and earned first team All-District 11-6A honors as a junior.
"Logyn is a lean and athletic post that can score in the paint or facing the basket from the perimeter," Coach Hughey said. "She has the ability to score in traffic, rebounds and can outlet and run the floor in our transition game. She fits our culture and pressing mentality. We are extremely excited to have her join our family."
