One of Kentucky’s top uncommitted targets in the class of 2019 will announce his college decision next week.
After months of crickets from the Jaden McDaniels camp, Scorebook Live Washington reports the five-star forward will announce his college decision Wednesday, May 15.
A McDonald’s All-American and a top ten player in the 2019 class, McDaniels is the second-highest ranked uncommitted recruit, behind only the recently reclassified R.J. Hampton. From the Seattle suburb of Federal Way, many believed for quite some time the hometown school, Washington, was the favorite. That’s all changed in the last week. Now UK holds 85% of the 247 Crystal Ball predictions, including one from Evan Daniels.
Along with Johnny Juzang’s Friday night announcement, it could be a nice week for the Big Blue Nation on the west coast.
Apparently, the report from Scorebook Live Washington doesn’t follow what’s happening in McDaniels’ camp. His trainer debunked the decision date a few hours after it was released:
There’s no commitment date, don’t believe what you read on this app, that’s all folks have a great day ??
