Gilchrist thrives in open court

Evan Daniels said Gilchrist deserves credit for helping bring this class together.

"We have him ranked No. 6 overall in our class and had him at No. 1 for quite some time. I don't think he moved down because he is not talented. I think some other guys surpassed him," Daniels said. "He really thrives in the open court and transition and thrives when he is attacking the basket.

"An area for improvement is more consistency with his jump shot. Defensively he has long arms. He is athletic. He can rebound. He moves his feet well. I think he is going to be a great player. He can do a little bit of it all. Rebounding, going to the basket, defending, scoring in general. He is a terrific looking prospect."

Daniels said Gilchrist deserves credit for helping bring this class together, too. "He is the one who got this whole deal started. He was always thought to be a John Calipari lean and that's what happened and he got the ball rolling," Daniels said.
