If you’ve followed the Jaden McDaniels recruitment, then you’ve heard the numerous rumors that he has already signed his Letter of Intent.
Jaden McDaniels says that the rumors are not true and he has not signed.
Last night, recruiting expert Evan Daniels changed his pick for McDaniels from Kentucky to “undecided”. Daniels said the battle for McDaniels is between Washington and Kentucky.
The 247 Sports Crystal Ball still shows Kentucky as the favorite:
McDaniels ranks as the 8th overall prospect in the 2019 class. The forward is 6-foot-9 and 185lbs. McDaniels and RJ Hampton are the only remaining top 10 recruits, in the 247 Sports Composite Rankings, that have not signed.
Evan Daniels didn’t give us great news on RJ Hampton either:
Don’t think he’s going to Kentucky

It’s not over for Jaden McDaniels, but I don’t feel as confident as I did yesterday. If we don’t add McDaniels, we need EJ Montgomery and Nick Richards to come back and we need to land the graduate-transfer Kerry Blackshear.
