Combo forward McDaniels likes the Tigers

Senior K.J. McDaniels, a super athletic and long forward, chose Clemson over Missouri, Murray State, South Alabama, and Tulane. McDaniels is a great rebounder on both ends of the floor, particularly on the offensive end, which allows him to get a lot up easy put-back lay-ups and dunks. Also, although he does not fill the stat sheet with blocks, he is very good at changing people’s shots and rebounds very well on the defensive end. However, he needs to add some muscle to his frame and develop a more consistent outside shot so defenders can’t just play off of him. Despite the fact that Clemson is losing their top two scorers in Demontez Stitt and Jerai Grant (who is also their top rebounder), it’s unlikely McDaniels will be a major contributor his first year but he should develop into a nice role player and eventually a starter when he’s an upperclassman. In addition, the Tigers should have one of the top front courts in the ACC in a couple of years between McDaniels, fellow 2011 recruit Bernard Sullivan, and current sophomores Milton Jennings and Devin Booker.
