Frank Haith has always been able to use his deep roots in the state of North Carolina to his benefit on the recruiting trail. Thursday morning, those roots paid off again for the Miami head coach when he and the Hurricanes landed a commitment from Bishop Daniels.
Arguably the most athletic guard in the class of 2011, the 6-foot-2 shooting guard is a product of Raleigh (N.C.) Word of God.
While he's always been well known for his skywalking ability, Daniels showed a much improved floor game all summer with the CP3 All-Stars. He's a very good pull-up jump shooter, can defend and handles well enough that he can steal you minutes at the point as well.
"They picked up a 6-foot-2 Dominique Wilkins," said CP3 coach Tony Edwards when he confirmed the news. "The ACC better box out!"
According to Edwards, the idea of playing in the ACC and a style that fits sold Daniels. A three-star prospect, Daniels currently ranks #112 overall nationally in the class of 2011.
