Adversity is something that Percy Daniels has grown comfortable overcoming.  The class of 2022 F/C has had to overcome some obstacles already in life but that has never stood in the way of him working to become an impact player on the court.  The Madison Prep Academy standout is one of the top recruits not only in Louisiana, but also in the region, and he’s been a role model to all young athletes to not let roadblocks stand in your way of achieving your goals.  His future on the basketball court is bright, and he is just getting started in terms of becoming a national household name.  

He has a natural feel for the game in the post.  He possesses great footwork and soft hands when playing with his back to the basket.  He has deep bag of post moves and is a fierce competitor on the offensive end.  He is a nightmare matchup for opponents because of his ability to finish around the rim.  He never gives up on plays and commonly finds himself in positions to get offensive rebounds.  While still improving his ball handling skills, he has developed the ability to face up and blow by post players in the half court.  He recently has put in a lot of work on his jump shot and has increased his range making him an even more difficult player to plan for.  He is the ultimate package and continues improve in all areas offensively. 

On the defensive end he is one of the most active players that you will find in his class.  His size and upper body strength make if difficult for player to back down in the post.  He anticipates very well and has an extremely high IQ on defense.  He gets a lot of blocks because of his leaping ability and is sound in his help side principles when his teammates get in trouble.  He uses his length to get in the passing lanes and get steals as well as deflections.  The fact that he can defend multiple positions on offense as well as the defensive end is why some big schools have taken notice and have made him a top target for their recruiting class in 2022.  

This past year has been one that has been promising because it showed that his hard work has not gone unnoticed.  Schools in the region began targeting him and he was able to land offers from LSU, TCU, and Tulane.  He also has been in contact and received scholarship offers from Grambling State University as well as Southern University.  We fully expect for this list to grow as he improves and continue to put in the work on the court and the classroom over the next 12-18 months.
