2020 point guard Rashad Weekly-McDaniels narrowed down his list of schools to three with UW-Milwaukee, Central Michigan and Western Illinois involved.
He planned on taking officials to all three and then committing in October. He has instead cancelled his remaining visits, told Central Michigan during his official that he was committed and announced his decision today.
“I chose them because I felt like it was a great place. I love the coaching staff and I always felt a strong chemistry and bond,” he said. “The style they play fits my style and how I like to play.”
Weekly-McDaniels becomes the first student-athlete to commit to Central Michigan head coach Keno Davis in the class of 2020. Central Michigan’s success with point guards such as Marcus Keene and Shawn Roundtree played a huge part in his decision, but former assistant coach Kyle Gerdeman was instrumental as well.
“Coach Gerdeman played a big role in it,” he explained. “If it wasn’t for him, I probably wouldn’t have been getting recruited by them. He put in a good word for me and talked highly about me before he left.”
Central Michigan adds a fiery point guard with a quick first step and the ability to get to the rim with ease. He’s a strong nosed guard that should fit in well under head coach Keno Davis. He has the ability to follow in the footsteps of similar guards at Central Michigan that blossomed into fantastic players during their time under coach Davis’ direction.
