Daniels takes in Oakland NIKE Camp

Oakley (Calif.) Freedom's Darrell Daniels, currently rated the No. 1 receiver prospect in the region, attended the NorCal NIKE Camp on Sunday but wasn't able to work out due to a sore hammy.

Darrell Daniels is one of the most physically impressive looking receivers we've seen. He looks all of 6-4, 215 pounds and recently clocked a 10.7-100m.

"That's actually when I hurt my hamstring," Daniels said. "I had to pull up right at the end there or I could have probably gone 10.5 or 10.6. It's getting better but I'm probably only about 50% right now. Hopefully in June I'll be ready to start working out again and be back to 100% by July."

Daniels recently picked up an offer from USC and said he's hoping to narrow his list down to a top five in the next few months.

"The offer from USC was big for me and I feel good about all the schools I have offers from right now," Daniels said. "There isn't really anyone I'm waiting on and I plan to take all of June and July and narrow my list of schools down to five.

"Then I'll take all my official visits during the fall and hopefully be able to make my decision. I'm trying to get to the Army All-American game and I would love to make my decision there. Everyone wants to be able to pick a hat on national T.V so we'll see if that can happen."

Daniels said while he's still sorting through his favorites, he knows two schools that will definitely get visits.

"I'm going to check out Washington and USC for sure," Daniels said. "I visited Washington for Junior Day and really liked it there. It's a great school with great academics and a great coaching staff. I'm very comfortable with the program there.

"USC is very similar. I like the program and the coaching staff and their tradition is second to none. They also have great academics and do a great job developing receivers. Academics are most important to me and I'm also looking at how early I can play and a school where I feel at home."
