BOSTON — DeAndre Daniels is back from his Duke visit and could be approaching a decision.
The 6-foot-8 wing from IMG Academies visited Duke this past weekend for “Senior Night.”
“From everything I’ve heard, he had a really good visit,” IMG Academies coach Andy Borman told SNY.tv Monday.
Daniels has now taken five officials — to Kentucky, Kansas, Texas, Oregon and Duke.
“I know it’s kind of the standard Big Three,” Borman said, “which would be Duke, Texas, Kansas.”
Still, Borman said “N.C. State and UCLA are both coming in to look at DeAndre this week.”
Kansas coach Bill Self may come in to watch both Daniels and 6-7 forward Jamari Traylor, who just returned from his official to Oklahoma State.
