DeAndre Daniels, the top available prospect in the class of 2011, is currently tucked away at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., and little recruiting information is coming out concerning the former Texas commitment.
Sources close to Daniels' situation, however, have informed Rivals.com that four schools are currently pushing toward the top of his recruitment. Kansas, Florida, UCLA and Texas are emerging as the teams to beat.
Rivals150 prospect Elijah Carter is the second-best available point guard in the class of 2011. A number of schools are involved with Carter. Butler and Oklahoma are the latest schools to call on the scoring lead guard.
Interest in the unsigned
Athletic shooting guard and Rivals150 prospect Josh Richardson will have plenty of options when the spring signing period rolls around. The latest schools to offer Richardson are TCU, Northeastern and Wichita State. Ole Miss is also pursuing Richardson.
Drawing a crowd
Class of 2012 five-star prospect Perry Ellis has been one of the most highly recruited prospects in the country, and there appears to be no let-up in the recruiting effort going into the season.
Class of 2012 four-star prospect Savon Goodman of the Philadelphia Academy of the New Church is expected to make it official for Villanova on Tuesday. The athletic and physical forward will join four-star combo guard Ryan Arcidiacono in the Wildcats' 2012 recruiting class.
