Kenny Daniels Signs National Letter of Intent With Cal State Northridge Basketball

May 23, 2008

Northridge, Calif. - A strong shooting off-guard from Sheridan College in Wyoming is the latest addition to the Cal State Northridge men's basketball program.

Kenny Daniels, who is 6-foot-4, and weighs 210 pounds, has signed a national letter of intent, according to Matador head coach Bobby Braswell.

Daniels, who will be a junior, will join the Matador team in 2008-09.

"Kenny is another critical part to our recruiting class," said head coach Bobby Braswell. "He gives us added depth at the wing position. We had a couple injuries at that position last year. He is a big-time athlete who can score slashing to the basket or shooting on the perimeter, along with being aggressive on the defensive end of the floor. He can also rebound when needed."

During the 2007-08 season, Daniels hit 57 percent from the floor (151-for-263), 42 percent from three-point territory (28-for-67), and 81 percent from the free throw line (64-for-79). Daniels was also among the team leaders in steals (32).

In helping Sheridan College to a 24-8 record in 2007-08, Daniels was selected first team all-league, averaged 13.6 points and added 4.7 rebounds per game.

"Probably his best asset is the fact that he is very unselfish," said Braswell. "He is the type of player who can make plays for himself or for his teammates."

Daniels hails from St. Louis, Mo., where he helped lead Vashon High School to a USA Today #1 national ranking. Daniels gained numerous post-season honors including all-state and all-league.
