Daniel Deane, the 6-foot-8, 225-pound power forward from Judge Memorial Catholic High School in Park City, Utah., is nearing the end of his recruitment. It appears that the three-star prospect will take one more official visit before making a decision about his future.
"Daniel and I will be talking later today, but I do believe that one more visit will happen before he makes a decision in September," said Judge Memorial Catholic head coach Jim Yerkovich. "There is a chance that Daniel will take an official visit to Wake Forest before making a decision.
"I can tell you that Stanford has dropped out of the running," he added. "I also know that North Carolina is begging to show some interest in Daniel, but I don't know where things stand there. Coaches from Wake Forest are planning to come out to conduct an in-home visit. I also know that coaches from Utah are planning to do the same."
After taking official visits to Stanford, Kansas and Gonzaga back in May, there was a time when it looked like Deane would decide before the spring/summer AAU circuit began. However, he decided to play his way through the circuit before making a decision.
As it stands right now, Deane intends to take one final visit before making a decision about his future.
