Daniels Earns First Offer

Chicago Foreman (Ill.) defensive lineman Johnny Daniels picks up an initial offer and has interest from several other schools.

Chicago Foreman has a legitimate Division-1 prospect in Johnny Daniels, a 6'5, 241-lb junior who played offensive tackle and defensive tackle last year. Even though he is still somewhat under the radar, recently, Daniels picked up a scholarship offer.

"Northern Illinois offered me about two weeks ago. That was my first offer. My coach had a conversation with the NIU coach. It caught me by surprise. It's a blessing. All the hard work pays off."

Daniels attended the Adidas Invitational on Saturday and had a good performance. Performances like that over the summer should bring more attention and get this Windy City sleeper firmly onto the boards of additional colleges.

"I've received a hand written letter from Jerry Montgomery [at Michigan]. I've gotten an invitation to their camp. I've heard from Wisconsin and Iowa State is interested in me as well."
