McDaniels has cut his list to Kentucky, Texas, UCLA, San Diego State and Washington. but said he wasn’t focused on the Kentucky coaches being in attendance one day after they lost to Seton Hall at Madison Square Garden Texas will be at McDaniels high school game on Tuesday, said Cartiea French-Toney, McDaniels’ trainer. With James Wiseman (Memphis) and Vern Carey (Duke) already off the board, Kentucky is in need of bigs in the Class of 2019. Calipari has already visited McDaniels twice in Washington and now saw him a third time. “It shows that he’s a priority that they’re here to watch hm play,” said French-Toney.

Still, nothing will be decided until after the season, and after the all-star game circuit. McDaniels hopes to make the McDonald’s All-American and Jordan Brand Classic games, and play in the Geico High School Nationals.
