West Virginia Offers Talented 2024 Ohio Power Forward Tyler McKinley



The recruits from the class of 2024 are still a long way from their college decision, but that doesn’t mean college coaches aren’t looking.

West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins and his staff are looking already, and they’ve offered 2024 power forward Tyler McKinley from Walnut Hills High School in Cincinnati, Ohio. With offers from Cincinnati, Miami (Oh.), Ohio and South Carolina, he’s a fast-rising sophomore.

McKinley (6-foot-8, 210 pounds) played on Walnut Hills’ varsity team, playing well as a freshman on the squad. He scored nearly 11 points per game and made an impact defensively with 6.5 rebounds and over two blocked shots per game. All while shooting 67% from the field.

With excellent size and strength for a sophomore, he’s shown good athleticism and defensive prowess at the prep level already, two traits well valued at WVU.

Huggins and his staff will likely continue to monitor McKinley throughout his high school career, possibly bringing him in for a visit at some point during his high school career.
