5'11" 2014 Point Guard Cedric Daniels was expecting to be leading the Central Yellowjackets this upcoming basketball season. However, that plan has changed, Daniels will now be attending Rise Academy in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for his senior year of high school.
Daniels and his mom had been discussing the potential move for the last two weeks. He talked with Rise and Evelyn Mack Academy in North Carolina. But he chose Rise Academy because of the boost he believes it will bring his recruitment.
Rise is also home to 2014 stars Kyle Kuzma (offers from UCONN, Florida State, Memphis, etc) and Da'Jon Streeter (offers from NKU, Duquesne, Norfolk State, etc). Daniels believes that the attention those two bring will help him get noticed as well. He also cited the increase in competition as a big factor in the decision to change schools.
Cedric has already received some interest from schools. Arkansas, Indiana State, Greenville College (IL) and Alabama-Huntsville have all shown interest. He believes that list will grow as he gets a chance to play on the prep circuit. He mentioned that while interest is great, he's really looking for a scholarship offer.
He also made it very clear that the decision to change schools had nothing to do with Central High School or the experience he had there. "I'm trying to be a better basketball player, and prep can really help me do that."
