Ex-FIU recruit follows Pitino to Minnesota
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Daquein McNeil is following Richard Pitino to Minnesota.
The Baltimore combo guard played at Vermont Academy and originally committed to play for Pitino at Florida International. Then Pitino left to take the Golden Gophers job, and McNeil was granted his release to join the coach in Minnesota.
McNeil averaged 19 points per game as a senior and will be eligible to play next season. He is the first player to commit to the Gophers since Pitino took over.
