Western Carolina has two additional signees for its men’s basketball recruiting class for the upcoming season.
Ty McGhie, a 6-4 guard from Guyer High School in Denton, Texas, and Sincere McMahon, a 6-1 guard from Crispus Attucks High School in Indianapolis, Indiana, are the latest to sign with the Catamounts.
McGhie was a 1,000-point scorer during his three-year varsity career. As a senior, he averaged 19 points and 4.5 rebounds and was named the 5-6A co-most valuable player. He shot 40 percent from behind the three-point line and 88 percent at the free-throw line.
As a junior, McGhie averaged 11.4 points and 3.5 rebounds.
“Ty is a great kid, a very good student, and has the chance to become a very good player in the Southern Conference,” Coach Mark Prosser said. “His size and position versatility, along with his elite ability to shoot the basketball, make him a very natural fit into our system. He has competed at an extremely high level of high school basketball in Texas as well as the highest possible level of AAU. He has produced at every stop along the way.”
McMahon averaged 26.1 points, 4.8 assists and 4.0 rebounds while shooting 51 percent from the field, 45 percent behind the 3-point line and 86 percent at the free-throw line as a senior. He was named the Indianapolis City Player of the Year and was a second team all-state honoree.
As a junior, McMahon averaged 16.6 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists. He scored 1,648 career points.
“Sincere is a young man that we identified early in the recruiting process,” Prosser said. “When the opportunity to recruit him again arose, we jumped at it. He is a very accomplished player who possesses position flexibility to play with the ball in his hands as a point guard, as well as off the ball due to his elite ability to shoot.”
