The prospect from Federal Way High School is the top player in the state of Washington and ranked eighth overall in the class of 2019. He is also one of the last prospects to commit in the class of 2019. The incoming freshman is considered full of talent, but extremely raw in his development.
He is listed at 6’9″ and 185 pounds at the power forward position. The top prospect will provide an instant impact to the team and makes the Huskies a serious threat in a rebuilding PAC-12. This addition gives the Huskies one of the best classes they’ve had in the past decade.

The Huskies also have a five-star center coming in named Isaiah Stewart who is ranked third in the recruiting class of 2019. Five-Star Kentucky Wildcats point guard Quade Green is also transferring to the Huskies this season even though his eligibility this season is in question.
Washington has a stellar class coming in and they’ll need it to combat the talented rosters of Oregon and Arizona. The Washington Huskies have an insanely talented frontcourt with Stewart and McDaniels coming in this season. The PAC-12 will be far more competitive this year compared to last year’s underwhelming performance.
The prospect decided to stay home and be a hometown hero for Washington and fans are beginning to reach a fever pitch in anticipation of the team taking the court. Their roster will be fairly young, but extremely talented this upcoming season.
