McDaniels has been to Texas, San Diego State, and Washington so far for official trips.  One of the elite talents in America.

Four.  Kenyon Martin Jr of California. Was committed to Cincinnati but changed his mind on that decision leading to a visit at West Virginia.  The schools that made his final list two months back were Nevada, Georgetown, West Virginia, Oklahoma, Florida State, Oregon State, Memphis and Cincinnati.

Five. Scotty Pippen Jr of California.  A six foot guard from Chatsworth in California who has built a solid offer list with Washington State often being the common name brought up.  Pippen had a strong summer and a really big fall that has many people interested to see what happens with him. 

Six. Jordan Hilstock of California. Jordan’s length and effort has made himself one of the better defenders available.  Schools that have shown interest are Columbia, Boston U, UC Irvine, Air Force, Cal State Fullerton, and others. 

Seven. Robert McRae of California. McRae has earned offers from Montana and Cal Poly with schools like San Diego State, Fresno State, UC-Santa Barbara, and Princeton all calling with the most interest. 

Eight. Ismael Cruz of CaliforniaCruz is one of the best shooters on the west coast and he recently named his top six schools.  Those six include New Mexico, Sienna, Colorado, Butler, San Diego State, and Santa Clara. 

Nine. Pierre Crockrell Jr of Washington. Houston, Texas Tech, Washington State, Colorado State and Montana are among the schools that have offered Crockrell.  Pierre is now a high school teammate of McDaniels making Federal Way one of the top high schools out there. 

Ten. Jamon Kemp of Washington.  An explosive wing with hops that shouldn’t surprise as Jamon is the son of Shawn Kemp.  Jamon is now at Rainier Beach High School. Washington State and Montana were among the programs that offered this summer.
