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.
McDaniels hosted John Calipari for an in-home visit last week, and he’s also had confirmed meetings with coaches from Texas and San Diego State, where his brother is a star player, in recent days. 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.
