Houston transfer Danuel House to visit South Carolina

Danuel House could soon call Columbia home. - Maddie Meyer

The former 5-star recruit would be an impact player for the Gamecocks, though not until the 2015-16 season.

After South Carolina missed out on Josh Cunningham, it seemed it moved its focus from the 2014 recruiting cycle to 2015.  However, one last candidate for this class recently emerged, though he would not take the floor for South Carolina until the 2015-16 season.

Dauel House joined the Houston Cougars as a five-star recruit from Missouri City, Texas.  After the Cougars let coach James Dickey go after this season and replaced him with former Oklahoma and Indiana coach Kelvin Sampson, House decided to find another place to play college basketball.  According to Jeff Goodman of ESPN, it seems Columbia is one of the places he's considering.

House would be a high-impact player as soon as he arrives.  He lined up primarily at the 3 for Houston, and shot the ball well from both 2 and 3.  However, one of his strongest attributes came from his ability to get to the foul line, a strength that would play very well on a Frank Martin-coached team.

Min/Gm PPG FT% 2P% 3P% FTR 3PA% Oreb% Dreb%
2012-13 28.6 12.4 71.8% 49.5% 31.6% 59.8 32.6% 6.0% 12.8%
2013-14 28.5 13.6 69.9% 49.3% 33.3% 40.1 40.9% 6.8% 14.4%

It's not in the chart, but House ran those numbers up by using a significant number of shots, taking over 27% of the Cougars' shots when he was on the court.  That's a significant attribute in a player when surrounded by other players who don't create shots as well, and the ability to do that while keeping his 2P% and 3P% at efficient levels shows an elite talent, who faced off against very good competition in the American Athletic Conference this season.

House would become the second five-star player on the Gamecocks squad for 2016, joining Sindarius Thornwell, who also plays the wing.  It seems likely that Carolina would either slide Thornwell up to the 2 or House down to the 4 to get them on the court together as often as possible, though they'd also likely adjust their minutes so at least one stayed on the floor throughout the entire game in most situations, resulting in Carolina keeping an alpha scorer on the floor at all times.

House also intends to visit UCLA before he decides on where to continue his career.
