Georgetown Recruiting DeAndre Daniels, Big Man Now Eligible to Play in 2010

Forget our 2011 woes, Scout is reporting that Georgetown is among a handful of schools in contact with DeAndre Daniels, a former Texas-bound big man who decommitted on Monday.  According to Scout

Daniels decommitted from Texas and since has gotten interest from USC, UCLA, Washington, UNLV, St. John's, Kentucky, Georgetown, Memphis and Gonzaga.

Daniels was ranked as the 10th best player in the Class of 2011 but is eligible to play this upcoming season.  Nation of Blue states:

Daniels is really a 2010 kid, but he missed a significant amount of school as a sophomore while he and his father cared for his sick grandfather. While Daniels' dad work, Daniels took care of his grandfather, who had cancer, so he missed like a semester of school and then didn't play basketball as a junior. That's the way I understand the situation went.

So because of that hardship, Daniels has been classified as a junior when really he is a senior in age. They were awaiting a waiver to grant an extra year of athletic eligibility, but while they've waited, Daniels has taken lots of summer and night classes, and has become eligible to be a part of the 2010 class.

Georgetown has one scholarship open this year due to Greg Monroe's departure to the NBA.  Don't get your hopes up though, looks like Kentucky and Calipari are all over the big man.
