http://www.scout.com/player/212689-daniel-scott?year=2016 After the commitment of three-star offensive lineman Poutasi Poutasi on Saturday, California added a second commit out of the final official visit weekend of the 2017 cycle in two-star La Canada (Calif.) St. Francis safety Daniel Scott.
http://www.scout.com/college/california/story/1750153-beyond-the-commitm... The 6-foot-2, 195-pounder received his first FBS scholarship offer from former Cal head coach Jeff Tedford at Fresno State, followed swiftly by Hawaii. He also had high interest from Yale, Columbia, Cornell, Princeton and UNLV. The Bears will take him as a safety -- a position which saw eight players projected to play there in the preseason go down with injury during the 2017 season.
“As a safety, I can do a whole lot," Scott told our Jackson Moore. "I can back up, go free and play the whole area. I think I have good awareness of where the ball is going to be. That’s one of my stronger points, having a strong football IQ. My coaches have done a good job teaching me the whole game of football. It’s important to have the skill set in your head as well as physically. I’m not afraid to fill holes or lanes either and be a hard-hitter.”
Scott received his offer from Cal on Sunday, the final day of his visit, and committed straight away.
Scott played both ways for the 9-2 Golden Knights this season, catching 41 passes for 688 yards and 10 touchdowns as St. Francis's leading receiver, returning eight punts for 101 yards, picking off five passes and deflecting another five, and racking up a team-high 70 tackles, with 6.0 tackles for loss.
