NEW ORLEANS – St. Augustine’s High School standout Caleb Daniels has signed a National Letter of Intent to continue his basketball career at Tulane University under head coach Mike Dunleavy, Sr.
“We are extremely excited with Caleb’s decision to pick Tulane as his college of choice,” Dunleavy said. “He is an outstanding wing player who plays with great intensity at both ends of the floor, and it’s very positive for us to bring in a local talent who will be a great addition to our team.”
A 6’4 guard, Daniels averaged 19 points, 12 rebounds, four assists and two steals per game as a senior, leading St. Augustine to the Division I state semifinals with a 26-6 overall record and 10-3 mark in district play. He was chosen as a Class 5A all-state second team selection by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association and voted the 2017 Catholic League District MVP according to a vote by the league’s head coaches. Daniels was also a two-time NOLA.com All-Metro Team selection following his junior and senior campaigns.
“I chose Tulane because it’s a great fit for me,” Daniels said. “It’s only 10 minutes away from home, and has great academics. It’s exciting and an honor to be a part of Coach Dunleavy’s first signing class and I’m looking forward to making an impact on the team.”
Daniels is the third member of the Green Wave’s signing class, joining Bul Ajang and Buay Koka from The Patrick School (N.J.). Ajang and Koka signed respective NLI’s during the NCAA’s Early Signing Period in November.
