Two down. One to go. DeAndre Daniels, the highest rated recruit left on the board, is postponing his decision to announce between the Kansas Jayhawks or Texas Longhorns until Thursday morning — another postponement after he originally pushed back the decision until Wednesday afternoon. Suffice to say, it’s hard to tell exactly when Daniels will make his decision.
Still programs like KU will gladly wait on Daniels’ timetable given the talent level he’d bring to a program in need of some scoring ability after the loss of Markieff Morris and Marcus Morris to the NBA Draft. Daniels’ teammate at IMG Academy, Jamari Traylor, has already committed to the Jayhawks as of this afternoon, so perhaps that’s a foreshadowing of things to come.
Then again, Daniels has already committed and decommitted to Texas in the last two years, which insinuates a deeply rooted connection to some degree or another. Whatever the decision, the Jayhawks have already lost out on Trevor Lacey, so if Daniels goes the other way as well, then it will largely be considered a loss. However, the additon of Traylor adds at least some good news in this tenuous season.
