C-USA offer in the books for Daniels
"My grades weren't good and I knew I wasn't going to have a chance at getting a scholarship," Daniels admitted to JCFootball.com recently. "I had always looked at Trinity and thought they were a good program. I was deciding between them and Coffeyville and Navarro, but in the end, I just felt more comfortable here and really trusted the coaching staff."
As a freshman last fall, Daniels was solid inside for the Cardinals, posting 50 tackles, three sacks and an interception. He said while he's played inside since he pretty much put on a football helmet, he feels comfortable playing all three of the linebacker positions.
"I have good instincts and speed, so I feel like I could play the WIL (weakside) or SAM (strongside)," Daniels said. "Being inside, I can read the guards and make plays. I have good speed (4.58) and I'm quick (4.2 short-shuttle) so in space I can usually figure out what's going on and then make a play."
Recruiting has been pretty steady for the talented linebacker and he recently hauled in an offer from a Conference USA school.
"Marshall offered me," Daniels said. "Their coaches said they liked me a lot and felt like I could come in there and really help them out a lot.
"Besides them, I have Tennessee looking at me, Texas Tech talked to me in the spring, Houston, Arkansas and a few others also talked to me in the spring.
"I think a lot of schools just want to see me again this fall before they offer me and that's all I can ask. I'll go out and perform and then if they offer me and feel like I can help them, then great, if not, I have a chance to live my dream and play D-1 with my offer from Marshall."
Daniels is on pace to graduate in May and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
