Recruiting analysts pick Washington for Jaden McDaniels

Another analyst calls it a toss-up between the Wildcats and Huskies.

The wait continues for Jaden McDaniels, and it’s not looking good for Kentucky.

After McDaniels was seemingly set to make a decision Wednesday, he opted instead to wait a little longer to announce where he would be attending college.

There hasn’t been much movement in the public eye over the last two days as to who McDaniels may be favoring, but it appears Washington is starting to gain traction.

At 247 Sports, recruiting analyst Andrew Slater just logged a prediction in favor of the Huskies for McDaniels, a Seattle native. Slater is one of the best in the business, so this is obviously a bad sign for the Wildcats.

Since then, Jerry Meyer and Chris Fisher has also logged a prediction in favor of Washington. Meyer is also on the best in the business, while Fisher works for Cats Pause. Seeing a recruiting writer for Kentucky school make a prediction for Washington doesn’t bode well for the Wildcats landing the top-10 talent.

Elsewhere, Rivals recruiting analyst said earlier today that he thought it was more of a 50-50 battle between Washington and Kentucky.

McDaniels is more of a guessing game at this point. He has not spoken about his recruitment much and has not set a date for his commitment. It is a total toss-up between Kentucky and Washington for his services.

Evans previously predicted Washington at Rivals. This comes after Evan Daniels and several other analysts changed their predictions to ‘foggy’ on Monday after previously picking Kentucky.

At this point, it seems like Kentucky should be rooting for McDaniels to wait it out and make a decision later, as it seems Washington has the lead right now, even it’s still a slight one.

I will say that I don’t think no one knows for sure what McDaniels will do and won’t until he announces, so nothing would be a surprise at this point.
