Utah freshman guard Devon Daniels has committed to NC State after also considering San Diego State.
Daniels enrolled at Utah last fall and spent one season in the program before deciding to transfer out this spring.
Daniels enrolled at Utah last fall with a reputation for being a two-way player projected to contribute early. He managed to work his way into the rotation, playing 27 minutes per game while averaging 9.9 points and 4.6 rebounds. He also tallied 78 assists while making 26 starts for the Utes.
Even more impressive was his efficiency. Daniels shot a blistering 57% from the field and 40% from three-point range while knocking down 72% of his free throws.
"I played to my strengths and played to the team's scheme," said Daniels. "I think it showed in the numbers... how well I played. Overall, the season was good. I learned a lot from the coaches and my teammates. I think I experienced a lot playing in the Pac-12... that helped. Overall, it was a productive season."
At 6-foot-5 and 195 pounds, Daniels has outstanding size and athleticism for the shooting guard position. How would he describe his game?
"I can get to the basket and finish with floaters and at the rim," he said. "I'm also good on defense, and I think I do a good job of helping my teammates play better."
Daniels will sit out next season and have three years of eligibility remaining.
