Hurricanes Ink Bishop Daniels in Early Signing Period

Nov. 10, 2010

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Head men’s basketball coach Frank Haith announced the signing of 6-2, 175-pound guard Bishop Daniels (Raleigh, N.C.) to a National Letter of Intent to play men’s basketball for the University of Miami.

Daniels, ranked just outside the top 100 players of any position by, averaged 13 points and five assists per game as a junior at Raleigh’s Word of God Christian Academy. The combo guard is known for his high-flying ability and his ability shoot the ball from anywhere on the court. According to, Bishops is “an electrifying athlete that can turn an ordinary transition situation into a high-light reel-type play worthy of his YouTube fame.”

Daniels played AAU ball for the CP3 All-Stars and was also recruited by schools such as NC State and Purdue.

“I think Bishop is one of the premiere athletes in this class,” said seventh-year Miami head coach Frank Haith. “He has all the tools to be a terrific college player and dynamic combo guard. Bishop is someone we’re going to work with to further develop certain aspects of his game, but I believe he is an athlete that will have a great college career. “

Daniels will be the fourth North Carolina native on the Hurricanes roster in 2011-12, joining current sophomores Reggie Johnson (Winston-Salem) and Garrius Adams (Apex.), as well as junior Julian Gamble (Durham).
