Daniels evaluates Derek Willis

"He has a tremendous overall skill set. That's the biggest thing that stands out about his game," Evan Daniels said.

Scout.com national recruiting analyst Evan Daniels has 6-8 Bullitt East junior Derek Willis rated as a top 35 player in the 2013 recruiting class.

"He's good enough to find a way on the floor for most teams," Daniels said.

Willis will announce Friday whether he'll play at Kentucky, Louisville, Purdue or Indiana.

"He has a tremendous overall skill set. That's the biggest thing that stands out about his game," Daniels said. "He runs the floor so well, is a solid athlete and has a legit jump shot that extends to 22 feet. For a guy his size he handles the ball well, can push the break and is capable of scoring with both hands around the basket."

Daniels says it's not hard to pick his best attribute.

"Without question it would be his skill. His game relies on it, as he can score with both hands, handles it well and can push the break," the Scout.com analyst said.

Daniels also thinks Willis would fit well into John Calipari's system at Kentucky if he picks the Cats.

"He's a guy that faces up defenders and takes the off the bounce and they would certainly find a role for them. Yeah, I think he fits that system," Daniels said.
