We still don’t have an exact date or time for Jaden McDaniels’ commitment announcement, but we’re now that much closer to some answers. Basketball insider Adam Zagoria got ahold of McDaniels’ high school basketball coach, who said they just need a bit more time.
“Jaden and I will be discussing his decision when I get back this week,” Coach Yattah Reed told Zagoria.
Reed has apparently been out of the area for the last week, explaining why they still need more time after a recruiting period that feels like it’s lasted an eternity. Zagoria posted the news in a tweet, followed by a subsequent blog post on his personal recruiting site, Zagsblog.
The five-star small forward is still between Washington and Kentucky, with more experts beginning to switch their picks to the Huskies.
After getting the quote from McDaniels’ coach, Zagoria quickly joined 24/7 Sports’ Evan Daniels and a hand full of other recruiting experts in picking Washington as his college destination.

Sit back and relax, BBN, because it looks like we’ve got a few more days to go in this saga. However, it’s looking more and more like the Washington Huskies have this one in the bag.
