McDaniels

John Calipari was in the Seattle area again this week to see five-star forward Jaden McDaniels, who is regarded as one of the top five players in the class of 2019.

McDaniels — a 6-foot-10 prospect — has narrowed his list to Kentucky, San Diego State, Texas, UCLA and Washington. His older brother, Jalen, is a standout player at San Diego State.

Calipari also visited McDaniels in Seattle last month and closely monitored his games on the Nike circuit this past spring and summer. He was named the breakout performer of the year in that league after finishing among the leaders in scoring and rebounding, and 247Sports now ranks him as the No. 4 overall player in the class of 2019.

Not much is known about the recruitment of Jaden McDaniels, a 6-foot-10 forward from Seattle who has emerged as one of the best basketball prospects nationally for the class of 2019.

Arizona, Kansas and Washington are among the many others chasing McDaniels, who is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 4 overall prospect in the class.

247Sports national analyst Jerry Meyer has now logged a Crystal Ball pick in favor of Texas for McDaniels, who’s expected to wait until the spring to make a college decision. He has not yet announced any campus visits.
