Four-star wing Devon Daniels commits to Utah

Devon Daniels is off the board to Utah, as the four-star 2016 shooting guard has committed to the Utes. He discusses his decision with Scout.

Utah added to its 2016 recruiting class on Wednesday, picking up a commitment from 6-foot-5, 195-pound Napa (Calif.) Prolific Prep shooting guard Devon Daniels.

The four-star prospect officially visited DePaul this weekend but upon returning home from Chicago, committed to Utah.

"I thought my relationship with their coaching staff was perfect," Daniels told Scout. "Me and coach (DeMarlo) Slocum had a great relationship. Coach K (Larry Krystkowiak) is a great coach and I look up to him."

Scout's 16th ranked shooting guard nationally in 2016, Daniels is a player who should have an impact at Utah.

"He's a tough, physical and athletic guard prospect," said Scout Director of Recruiting Evan Daniels. "He excels in transition and finds a way to get to the rim and score."

"Devon is a big of a do-it-all type wing," added Scout Recruiting Analyst Brian Snow. "He is a good athlete who can make plays off the bounce and is a capable shooter. No one skill stands out at an elite level but he does several things well and potential as a defender."

Daniels is pleased with how the Utah coaching staff plans on using him and is confident in the impact he can make in the Pac-12.

"They plan on using me as a combo guard, someone who is really versatile and can defend," Devon Daniels said. "I feel like I can make a big impact; that's why I'm going there. I think I can help make them great and help them win games."

Daniels joins four-star center Jayce Johnson and JUCO transfer Jojo Zamora in the Utes' 2016 class.
