2020 PG Rashad Weekly-McDaniels Commits To Central Michigan

Rashad Weekly-McDaniels just verbally committed to Central Michigan, he tells Recruit Look Hoops.

Weekly-McDaniels is a three star prospect according to various scouting services.

McDaniels officially visited Central Michigan on August 28th and committed just a week later. He chose the Chippewas over UW-Milwaukee, and Western Illinois. 

What stood out about Central Michigan over the rest? The family atmosphere and the small campus feel.

“It just felt like home,” said McDaniels. “Out of all the schools I visited, this just felt like the place for me,” added McDaniels. “I really love how small the campus is. My dorm is right across from the gym, so I’ll be able to get to work at anytime.” 

Even though it felt like home and it’s aura had a family atmosphere, that’s not the only thing that’s draws a recruit in when choosing a school. Which rings true for McDaniels’ case. Coach Davis hit a homerun during McDaniel’s recruitment with both him and his parents. 

“Coach Davis is another big reason why I’m committing to Central Michigan,” said McDaniels. Relaying a lot of the same sentiments that McDaniels preaches, Davis is huge on communication. Which could be why he’s reeling in a natural leader and point guard. “Communication is huge for me, and Coach Davis is big on communication as well. He was always talking to me and that meant a lot to me.”

What’s McDaniels want Chippewas fans to know about him as a player? “That I’m a team player. I’m a pass first guard and I always want to get my teammates involved. I’m just always going to play with a smile too, that’s just who I am.”

The Chippewas may have officially added McDaniels, but they know they can’t stop there. Neither is McDaniels who is beginning to peer recruit early for the Chippewas in hopes of bringing some more talented players with him to Mount Pleasant, Michigan. 

“Josh Wallace from Link Year Prep and Sam Richardson from Hancock. They’re both. St. Louis kids,” said McDaniels regarding who he’s trying to get to join him. “Coach Davis actually called me this week and asked who I would think would be great additions to our class, those two immediately came to mind.”

McDaniels a point guard out of St. Louis, Missouri for Trinity Catholic is the first commit in 2020 for Central Michigan and Coach Keno Davis. 

What type of player is Central Michigan getting in Rashad Weekly-McDaniels?

“Weekly-McDaniels is a big bodied guard who looks like he should be a college running back. McDaniels uses his body well when getting to the rim and his strength allows him to finish through contact well. McDaniels has an improving three-point shot that will be key for him at the next level. Loves getting his teammates involved, a true pass-first point guard. He’s a natural leader and it shows on the basketball court. His defense is improving, which will need to be a big thing for him to continue to focus on before he gets to the next level.”

Press Release

August 2nd, 2019

RecruitLook Hoops will once again host the Larry Hughes Elite Camp on August 10-11, 2019 in St. Louis. This is an invite-only camp that will bring in some of the top high school basketball recruits from across the country. The two-day event will feature a mixture of 60 national recruits in the 2020, 2021, and 2022 recruiting classes – all getting the chance to learn from NBA-veteran and skills trainers.

NBA veteran, Larry Hughes, along with state-champion high school coach, Justin Tatum, will be the lead instructors for the Camp that will take place at Hughes’ brand-new facility.

Hughes has an impressive resume having played thirteen seasons at the highest level of professional basketball in the NBA. He was drafted by the 76ers in the 1st round (8th overall) of the 1998 NBA draft out of Saint Louis University, where he was named Freshman of the Year. Hughes was recognized as a versatile and athletic guard with strong defensive abilities, and was selected to the 2004-2005 All-Defensive 1st Team.

“Larry is passionate about spreading his basketball knowledge to the younger generation, which aligns with our vision and overall goal of RecruitLook Hoops,” says Mike Enright, Founder of RecruitLook. “It’s paramount that we have an influential partner like Larry to assist with the development of the next generation of basketball players.”

This camp will also feature wearable technology that is found in top-notch NBA facilities, including the RSPCT Basketball System to track shots, and the Kinexon’s sports technology cameras to measure player movement. All the data is tracked and logged into a digital locker, which will be shared to college coaches of all levels.

“We founded Larry Hughes Basketball Academy as well as our BTS (Basketball Training System) to develop athletes’ basketball abilities and basketball IQ — as well as their character and life skills,” says Larry Hughes, Founder of LHBA and BTS. “We share the same vision when it comes to assisting youth within the sport of basketball. We’re excited to build leaders on and off the court.”

The Larry Hughes Elite Camp provides athletes with an opportunity to showcase their skills against elite competition, while also learning more about the game of basketball and life-skills from special guests. In addition to the drill work and skills sessions the campers will receive, the camp will focus on teaching valuable lessons off the court.
