ROCHESTER, Mich. - Nick Daniels, Kahlil Felder and Jalen Hayes have signed a National Letter of Intent to play their collegiate basketball at Oakland, announced men's basketball head coach Greg Kampe on Thursday.
"My staff did one heck of a job," said Kampe. "I can't tell you how excited I am about all three kids we signed. All three are left-handed and top-notch players. They can defend, they're athletic and they can score. What I like most about them is they all can run the floor and can elevate. We hit a home run!"
Daniels is a 6-foot-1, 160-pound point guard at John Glenn High School. He is 300 points shy of setting his school's all-time scoring record and is a 3-point threat. He is a very aggressive and can score the ball.
Felder is a 5-foot-9, 165-pound point guard at Detroit Pershing High School. He averaged 19 points and over 7.0 assists per game last season at Pershing. Felder is very skilled offensively and defensively, is a tough competitor and leader on the floor.
Hayes is a 6-foot-7, 200-pound forward from Lansing Sexton High School. He is the latest Sexton product to join the Golden Grizzlies (Jordan Howenstine, Drew Valentine, Assistant Coach Saddi Washington) and is a long, very skilled player. Hayes runs the floor well and is an excellent finisher around the basket. He led Sexton to back-to-back Class B State Championships.
