What the media is saying about Daniel Mading

Jeff Borzello (ESPN.com)
"The biggest thing that stands out about Daniel Mading is his upside and potential. With his length and size, he could be a major impact player at the next level. Mading can run the floor well, he finishes in transition and has very good athleticism. He's also skilled enough that he'll be a factor in a half-court setting. Mading has some touch in the mid-range and is capable of knocking down perimeter shots. You can throw the ball to him near the rim too."

Evan Daniels (Scout.com)
"Daniel Mading is a long, versatile forward prospect with tremendous upside. He has good mobility, good hands, solid athleticism and has potential as an offensive weapon. This is a quality pickup for Texas Tech."
