That might just work out well for the schools recruiting Devon Daniels, though.
Daniels, a 6'6” combo guard out of Battle Creek, Michigan (Kalamazoo Central High School), is having a solid spring for 1 Nation on the Under Armour Association. While not overly athletic, Daniels plays a steady brand of basketball while seemingly always playing under control and making wise decisions with the basketball.
He can do a lot of things well. He is effective slicing through the lane and drawing contact. Daniels is most certainly not afraid to mix it up as well as score from the perimeter. The latter aspect of his game is certainly making an impression on the recruiting trail.
Daniels knows that he is approaching a significant time in his high school career and looking to work on some things over the summer.
“Some of my goals this summer is to go to the Steph Curry camp and top-100 camp and (impress)” said Daniels on what he's looking to do this summer.
Through 12 games on the UAA circuit, Daniels is averaging 13.3 points per game, while shooting .417 percent from three-point range (15 of 36). Daniels is also averaging 5.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game.
“I think I'm doing pretty good,” Daniels said while playing in UAA's Ardsley, New York event over Memorial Day weekend. “I can always get better, but it's been a good season.”
Daniels said he wants to work on consistency this summer and keep on “just getting better.” He can mix it up and does not fear contact. Although an off guard, Daniels can handle the rock really well. He’ll certainly make a great combo guard at the next level.
On the recruiting trail, Daniels says he is hearing most from Utah, Minnesota, DePaul, Creighton and Xavier.
When it comes to DePaul recruiting Daniels, the point man for recruiting him is new DePaul associate head coach Rick Carter. Carter, who has major connections to the state of Michigan, has known Daniels for a while now.
“My relationship is real good with him,” said Daniels. “I've known him since he was at Xavier. We talk a bit.”
While he plays with a stud recruit in Jackson, Daniels should not be overlooked, and thus far in the spring he is letting his game speak for itself. And that game has high-major material written all over it.
Look for Daniels to only get better and be the focus of a fierce recruiting battle in the fall.
