Dailey will be a freshman in 2016. You can check out his highlights here. Dailey had offers from a host of mid-major schools (like Northeastern, Northern Iowa and Robert Morris) and interest from most Big Ten schools, per Rivals.
Richie Schnyderite talked to Dailey, who said:
"I choose Rutgers because of how comfortable I feel there. I believe in coach Jordan’s plan for the future. All of the pieces aligned to make their goals become a reality up at Rutgers. When I was discussing the decision with my high school coaches they asked me if basketball were to be taken away from me for some reason, do you see yourself as a regular student at Rutgers and getting your degree. My answer was YES. I couldn’t say that about a majority of the other schools recruiting me."
