DeAndre Daniels, a four-star power forward from Woodland Hills, California has committed to play at UConn this fall. Daniels checks in at 6’7″ and will be joining Jeremy Lamb as a threat on the wing. Rivals.com has him as a five-star recruit and ranks him as the 10th best player in his class and the 3rd best small forward. He is rated as a four-star recruit by Scout.com. He’s ranked 29th in his class and is the seventh-ranked power foward.
He’s coming to UConn after a year at IMG academy and at one point seemed like he was headed for Texas. He was also considering Kansas, Duke and Oregon.
Daniel’s is one half of a (recruiting-penalty reduced) 2011 class. He will join four-star point guard Ryan Boatright in Storrs next year.
