Need A Little Deandre Daniels In Your Afternoon?

deandredaniels

Deandre Daniels, the kid you’ve been waiting to hear from, has a game today.  So if you want to get a look at a potential future wildcat – or if you just really like watching high school basketball on New Years Day, you can check out his IMG Academy take on Oak Ridge in a game that is sure to be mediocre.

But hey, there’s always a chance Daniels will rip off his jersey to reveal a Kentucky one underneath.  You never know.

Game starts at 4:30 est, make sure you click over to Oak Ridge Military (NC) vs IMG Academy (FL) if it doesn’t automatically direct you there.

    He’s normally 35 I think, but the event still isn’t starting for me. Anyone else having problems?

    next question, is he in blue or white??

    I am guessing but I think he may be 32 in white. Big ally oop

    Yeah, it’s not working for me. But he does tend to be 35 when he plays with IMG.

    I am not an expert, but he does not look physically ready to play in college. However, he has huge potential. He could provide 5-10 minutes if we get in foul trouble this year (assuming he commits and wants to play).

    Oh I see…35 in blue. That kid looks much better. Hope that is him.

    I checked out the IMG website and found videos of Daniels, he does wear # 35. I can’t tell, but it looks like there is a #35 sitting on the bench. Being the fact that the IMG is getting dominated by this other team, he may not be playing, yet.

    13 – After #35 in blue picked up the foul, it sounded like they said “Brian King”.

    I have a friend who works in the sports dept at a local Austin Tx TV station……he says Daniels is headed to Texas. Decision will come Monday…….

    16. Well…I am not sure which one he is.

    The announcer said that IMG only had 17 points after the end of the 2nd quarter, so they are definitely the white team.

    17 – I can’t see him taking Texas over KU and UK. I think you’ve got some bad intel.

    17 – why does your friend say Daniels is headed to Texas? Because of where he works? Why would anyone there know?

    I’m guessing somebody’s friend in Lawrence is saying Daniels is headed to KU. And somebody’s friend in Lexington is saying he’s headed to UK.

    If you can’t explain why your friend has specific knowledge, his opinion isn’t worth more than mine. Which is crap. Sorry.

    Its distinctly possible Daniels isn’t even playing. I watched about 5 minutes, and never could tell for sure.

    IMG was scheduled for 2 games today. Maybe Daniels is sitting out the second. Also keep in mind that IMG can have more than one “team”- they’re not a traditional HS, they’re an athletic training academy that affiliates itself with a local prep school for academics.

    24 – I agree. I wonder if he isn’t playing because he plans on being somewhere else and possibily playing soon.

    Was at the game yesterday. I am as big a UK fan as anyone, but want to call out this UK fan that was sitting a couple rows behind me. He was in section 302, row V. He was acting like an idiot and almost got his [email protected] kicked by some redneck uofl fan. He deserved to have his [email protected] kicked for the way he acted. Not only was he an idiot, but he came across as very uneducated. There were a bunch of other fellow UK fans in this section. Anyone else see any of this?

    31) I agree, but this guy was in a class all by himself. I just don’t understand how a fan can go into an opposing team’s arena and think it’s acceptable to act that way.

    28 – Why didn’t you tell him to his face instead of calling him out anonymously on the internet? You sure are tough.

    32) Trust me — as few opposing fans as make it to Rupp, there are always those folks there.

    I guess no one knows where I can watch the replay of the UK UL game?

    Why does KSR want to tease the UK fans with such junk? To get hits? Just wait until he commits then post it. I’m tired of reading about what he might do.

    That doesn’t sound good for UK.

    If Deandre Daniels commits to UK his nickname needs to be, “Slim.” Dude looks dead on the character Slim from the show The Wire… great show too. http://img375.imageshack.us/img375/3715/slim.jpg

    Great “get” for sure if we do get him…-but wonder about 2 small forwards (Gilchrist) now coming in as thats a bit different than say 2 guards coming in. Hell, maybe I’m brain washed with us playing with 6 guys and have forgot about a real rotation…
