OVE BACK JMAC
Incoming freshman Jaden “JMAC” McDaniels can be an effective three-point shooter from the longer international three-point distance.
At 6’10” with long arms, he shoots very easily from long distance.
McDaniels shows a good shooting form with no wasted motion and a quick release.
Because of his height, Jaden’s jumper is extremely hard to contest because of his high release point.
Also, Jaden’s offensive versatility will make defenders give him space rather than deny the three-point shot too aggressively.
McDaniel’s long first step, ball-handling skills and impressive athleticism make him a threat to attack the rim after he puts it on the floor, and a nightmare for defenders.
McDaniels is a three-level scorer. Expect the Huskies coaches to use Jaden to stretch the floor from the perimeter as a 6’10 wing, maybe not primarily as a three-point threat yet allowing for Jaden’s offensive versatility to extend out to the new three-point line.
In half-court situations, the Huskies can use JMac as another outside threat for Washington’s offense that will provide spacing for Isaiah Stewart to go to work in the low post.
