Evan Daniels switches his Jaden McDaniels pick to undecided

Over the last several days, Kentucky has picked up nearly all of the momentum when it comes to 2019 five-star forward Jaden McDaniels. There were even some rumors on Twitter that the UK coaching staff had received his National Letter of Intent and an announcement was imminent.

Tonight, though, recruiting guru Evan Daniels decided to jump off the Kentucky hype train… at least temporarily.

After submitting a prediction in favor of the Wildcats last week, Daniels, who has an all-time prediction success rate of 93.51%, changed his Crystal Ball pick on 247 Sports to “undecided.”

Recruiting analyst Josh Gershon, who also has an all-time success rate of over 90%, changed his pick to “undecided,” as well.


In other brief recruiting news, 2019 four-star guard and Duke decommit Boogie Ellis announced his commitment to Memphis this afternoon, all but taking the Tigers out of the running for five-star combo guard RJ Hampton.

With Texas Tech having little-to-no momentum right now for the Little Elm, TX native, one would think it’s down to Kansas and Kentucky, right?

Possibly, but according to Daniels, that doesn’t mean the Cats have a serious shot to land Hampton.

This evening on Twitter, Daniels said he “(doesn’t) think he’s going to Kentucky.”

We’ll talk about it all tomorrow on Pilgrim’s Insider Notes.

Stay tuned…

    I’ll be a recruiting guru and say undecided every time and I’ll be right all the time too.

      That would be your only shot at being right about anything.

    Presumably someone’s putting word out there that he’s not definitely going to Kentucky. Maybe because he isn’t or maybe just to create drama for when he announces it officially, however he announces it.

      So in other words, we don’t know?

    My hope is that both Richards and Montgomery return.

    But what about the “swaggy” UK Basketball tweet about recruiting?
