Player: Montana Wheeler
School: Houston Christian (TX)
Phenom Hoops continues to bring you some of the top recruiting news around the country, and we head back to Texas to learn more about a rising guard that has the attention of several teams early on. 2025 Montana Wheeler from Houston Christian (TX) has been elevating and developing his game as a guard, and schools are taking notice as he added two new offers in 24 hours. We recently spoke to Wheeler to learn more about his game and all the latest going on in his recruitment.
“I would describe my game as a dynamic point guard who is always trying to make the right play. I like to play with great speed and pace. I also play with a certain amount of passion that is contagious to my teammates. I feel my biggest impact on the court is my pace and speed in transition.”
“The biggest way I feel I have improved from last year is my understanding of the game. Last year being a freshman and being depended on being a dud was kind of too much for me at times. It caused me to take difficult shots and make plays that were not there. This year with a year under my belt, I feel my shot selection and knowing time and score has grown tremendously.”
The 2025 guard earned two early offers from Texas A&M and Lamar, but in the last week, Wheeler added offers from Kansas State and Rice as well. And when talking with Wheeler about the early success and offers, he can’t deny that it has been an amazing feeling.
“It feels amazing, it is a great feeling to know that your work is paying off but also creates a target on my back every single time I step on the court,” he said. “The coaches have been really praising me about my development. Around this time last year, I truly feel I am a different player, which shows my work is paying off.
I am super excited and blessed that show schools see a bright future for me and I hope in the future, I can learn more about each of them as well.”
Wheeler has already visited Rice this month and he would like to check out Kansas State, Texas A&M, and Lamar as well, but no dates have been set. Oklahoma State also came by to watch Wheeler as well recently.
