Not only do we have Jaden McDaniels but we pair him with another top 10 prosepct in Isaiah Stewart. According to The Seattle Times:
One NBA scout likened the UW forwards to Duke freshmen stars Zion Williamson and R.J. Barrett who dominated college basketball headlines and highlights last season.
“They’re going to look pretty good especially in that zone,” Rivals basketball analyst Eric Bossi said. “You’re talking about two long and lengthy guys.
“Jaden is interesting because he’s very versatile offensively. … Bringing in a couple of guys like that who are uber-talented and potential lottery picks, how could you not be super excited.”
Yeah, this is going to be fun. I don’t want to get too ahead of myself here. But The Final Four is in Atlanta this year. Sounds like fun. See you in the ATL. Here’s a mixtape of Jaden McDaniels.
