Today On KSR: Jaden McDaniels committed to Washington while you were sleeping

While you and I were sound asleep last night, Jaden McDaniels did the most Jaden McDaniels thing ever by announcing his commitment to Washington when nobody was paying attention. The five-star power forward sent out a tweet a little after one o’clock in the a.m. to say, “I’m staying home.” It was his first tweet since February 15, back when he said, “this is a banger,” about a vertical video of someone working on a rap song. I didn’t even realize he had Twitter until today.

Now his recruitment is over and Kentucky fans can finally move on. You are now free to forget the name Jaden McDaniels because he is staying out west at Washington to never be heard from again until the next level. It would’ve been lovely to have him in Lexington next season, but he chose to remain a Seattleite for his college basketball career.

Good luck to you, Jaden. Tell Quade Green we said hello.


Kentucky offered a 2021 quarterback prospect out of Indianapolis.

Darin Hinshaw may have a room full of young quarterback talent for years to come, but he is still out looking for more for on down the road. Yesterday he extended a scholarship to Donaven McCulley, a dual-threat QB out of Indianapolis in the 2021 class. McCulley is the 13th-ranked dual-threat and the ninth-best player in Indiana in his class.

Three-star defensive tackle names Kentucky one of his top six.

Michael Reese, a defensive tackle from just outside of Nashville, revealed his top six schools on Tuesday and Kentucky made the cut. The 6-foot-3, 255-pounder also included Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Missouri, Arkansas and Duke among his leaders, but noted the list is not final. He will be a senior at Cane Ridge High School next season.

Watch: NBA Draft analyst Mike Schmitz breaks down PJ Washington’s game to PJ Washington’s face.

Schmitz finally got around to sharing video of his analysis of PJ Washington at last week’s NBA Combine, while PJ Washington joined the ESPN crew on set.

He calls Washington’s left-shoulder jump-hook “almost automatic.”

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander named to NBA All-Rookie Second Team, exactly like nobody predicted before he signed with Kentucky.

From 31st-ranked player in his high school recruiting class to sixth-best player in his NBA rookie class, Gilgeous-Alexander is an All-Rookie selection. He narrowly missed the First Team but leads the Second Team in voting.

His old teammate, Kevin Knox, missed out completely, earning only 22 Second Team votes. Knox was 12th among rookies.

KSR to hijack the Paul Finebaum Show again today.

Matt and I will be back on the ESPN airwaves for four hours of filling in for Paul Finebaum. If you missed yesterday’s show, you can catch it on podcast here. We were only on for two hours yesterday.

Trivia returns to KSBar and Grille tonight.

Get on out to KSBar this evening to visit Ryan Lemond and to participate in trivia at 7 p.m. It is going to be a fun night for everyone except Ryan, who I am sure is already exhausted after his second night in KSJail.

Speaking of KSJail, Matt and Ryan will do today’s show from there from 10 a.m. to noon. Doors open to the public at 11 a.m.

Go Cats.


2019 five-star forward Jaden McDaniels commits to Washington

2019 five-star forward Jaden McDaniels has made his decision.

As expected, the 6-foot-10 prospect out of Federal Way, WA has decided to stay home and play for the Washington Huskies.

He made the following post on Twitter this evening:

McDaniels, a consensus top-15 prospect, chose Washington over Kentucky, San Diego State, Texas, and UCLA.

Over the last several weeks, we’ve seen multiple momentum shifts in this recruitment. Washington was seen as the favorite for the majority of his senior season, but recently, Kentucky took over as the (temporary) favorite.

In the end, though, the draw of staying at home to play in front of friends and family every night won out. Instead of playing in the spotlight several hundred miles away in Lexington, he’ll have the ability to distance himself from the pressure at Washington one more year before making the jump to the NBA.

We’ll have more on the decision and what it means for Kentucky moving forward in Pilgrim’s Insider Notes tomorrow afternoon.
