Daniels Could Make Move To 2010

Shortly after decommitting from Texas, news has surfaced that DeAndre Daniels could make a move back to his original class.

There's a new twist to the DeAndre Daniels recruitment.

Daniels, who is currently a 2011 recruit, may opt to return to the 2010 class. According to Woodland Hill (Calif.) Taft coach Derrick Taylor, he's eligible to make the move.

"He qualified and he's cleared by the NCAA," Taylor told Scout.com. "They want him now. The coaches want him in on Monday. He's been getting offers. I've been getting calls from everybody."

Since decommitting from Texas, Taylor and the Daniels family have fielded phone calls from schools from USC, UCLA, Washington, UNLV, St. John's, Kentucky, Georgetown, Memphis and Gonzaga.

"He's ready to play now," Taylor said.

The plan is to set down and figure out what Daniels wants to do. In the mean time, he'll take a pair of visits.

"He's going to visit the two local this weekend," Taylor said.

Kentucky was one of the schools that recruited Daniels prior to his commitment to Texas and they are back in the picture as well.

"Kentucky wants him in this class," he said. "They called me today and asked for his transcript. That's what they told me."

Daniels, a 6-foot-8 hybrid forward, has a unique game. He's a high level athlete that shoots the ball very well and with deep range. He's currently rated the No. 8 power forward and No. 35 overall in the 2011 class.
