One of the top recruits in the 2011 class, DeAndre Daniels has made his much-anticipated decision -- He'll be a Huskie.
Originally from Woodland Hills, CA, the 6-8, 200-pound Daniels today committed to UConn after being heavily recruited by Texas, Kansas, Duke, Florida, Tennessee, Oklahoma State and others. A hybrid guard/forward, Daniels can attack the basket off the dribble, finish in traffic and knock down the three-point shot with consistency well beyond the college line.
After originally committing to Texas in 2010, Daniels decided to spend a year at the IMG Academy basketball program to better prepare himself for the rigors of a collegiate student-athlete.
"DeAndre has taken full advantage of everything that IMG has to offer and has continued to develop on the court, in the classroom and in the weight room," said the Director of the IMG Academy basketball program. "He is an extremely talented young man, but what sets him apart from other talented kids his age is the fact that he is extremely driven and focused on becoming the best player possible. He is an immediate impact player at the next level."
