Daniels Commits to UConn

UConn got a commitment today from DeAndre Daniels, a 6-foot-8, 200-pound guard/forward out of the IMG Academy.

Originally from Woodland Hills, CA Daniels had been 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, said Andy Borman, Director of the IMG Basketball Academy.

Daniels will take UConn's 10th and final scholarship available for next season.

After originally committing to Texas in 2010, Daniels decided to spend a year at the IMG Basketball Academy 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 Borman. “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.”
