was included in the list.

The other players on the list were Shabazz Napier, C.J Wilcox, Jerami Grant and Jordan Adams.

If McDaniels played for a higher profile program, he'd be talked about as a potential lottery pick -- he's that good. The 6-6 wing blocked close to three shots per game last season (2.8) and is a capable rebounder (7.1) and scorer (17.1). Blessed with the athletic ability to defend up to four positions, McDaniels could emerge as a solid NBA piece if he's paired with a point guard who can get him baskets. A high-level athlete, McDaniels comes from the same mold as Jeffery Taylor or Richard Jefferson.
