Friday Quickies: Trending Elsewhere Edition

We continue to wait on Jaden McDaniels with Washington being the trending pick

The News Tribune

The Jaden McDaniels recruitment is continuing on with the Big Blue Nation watching intently to see where the talented forward will land next season.

The trending pick is that McDaniels will stay home and play for the Washington Huskies, joining fellow highly-ranked big man Isaiah Stewart and former Wildcat Quade Green. This came after Kentucky had gained a ton of momentum for McDaniels, but now the tide has seemingly turned.

Some analysts have changed their guesses to Washington, but others continue to call it a toss up.

The thought is the sooner McDaniels decides, it is more likely to be Washington, but if the recruitment continues to go on, the tide could turn back toward Kentucky’s favor.

We still don’t have a definite decision date, so we continue to wait and hope that McDaniels decides to bring his talents to Lexington next season and join a Kentucky team that has the pieces to contend for a national championship yet again.
