We saw him last year and thought he was a solid prospect, but it wasn't until last weekend at the Howard Pulley Invitational in Minnesota that we saw just how good Danuel House could be. House was the most consistent player we saw and helped lead Texas PRO to yet another championship.
A high energy player, House was constantly in attack mode and scored in almost any way you can imagine. He knocked down three pointers, mid-range jumpers, driving layups, and several highlight-reel dunks in transition.
So why has it taken so long for him to get national recognition as a big-time prospect? House admits that he's gone a bit under the radar, but adds that he's also worked hard to get better. Most notably on dribbling, shooting, and becoming a student of the game.
When asked who has been recruiting him the hardest he responded with a mixture of high-major and mid-major schools. "Baylor, Texas, TCU, Texas A&M, Maryland, Louisville, Richmond, Vanderbilt, Texas-Arlington, Houston, and Iowa. I only have offers from Baylor, TCU, Texas-Arlington, Richmond, and Houston." He also added that Baylor, Houston, Texas, and Maryland stand out at this point in his recruitment.
When asked what he looks for most in a school he insisted that location doesn't matter. "Location doesn't matter and a school that cares about me, teaches me how to be a better man and teaches me how to be a better ball player."
House's recruitment is sure to heat up this summer and offers will be pouring in come July, but he isn't in a hurry to commit before the end of the AAU season.
"I might commit my senior year when school ball is going on."
Whoever happens to land him will get a talented wing player who can fill up the scoreboard and ignite the crowd on a regular basis.
