Fresno State Targeting Oxnard (Calif.) TE Daniel Moraga

Fresno State has been active on the recruiting trail and has begun to show interest in TE Daniel Moraga of Oxnard (Calif.) Pacifica High.

Daniel Moraga of Oxnard (Calif.) Pacifica High provided some eye-catching moments at the Fresno State Thousand Oaks camp held on June 16, in the form of one-handed catches.

The tall 6-foot-4, 215-pound 2017 prospect drew rave reviews from the spectators and Bulldog coaches who saw Moraga’s level of focus on the one-handed grabs. He not only displayed soft hands, but wowed people with his speed and ability to get deep during one-on-one sessions against cornerbacks.

“I think I did good overall. I went in with a lot of confidence,” Moraga said. “I did drop a few balls, but I got back to it. I ended up with a few one-handed ones. I also played some linebacker too.”

Moraga arrived to the Lancer Stadium field targeted by three different programs; Hawaii, Idaho and Northern Colorado have extended a scholarship offer to him.

Before the June satellite camp, he was in previous contact with Fresno State.

“They’re looking at me as a receiver,” Moraga said. “It’s a great coaching staff. I’m developing a good connection with coach [Joe] Bernardi. He tells me to be patient and my time will come.”

Moraga said he doesn’t have a set time and place for when he wants to announce his verbal commitment, but added that he would highly consider Fresno State if a scholarship paper is given to him.

“It’s still early in the process. But they would definitely be near the top [if they offered]. They’ve had a great receiving core. If I do go there, I might move to tight end. I’ll do whatever it takes to play whatever position,” Moraga said.
