At six-foot-three, 301-pounds, Dallas (TX.) Bishop Dunne junior defensive tackle Damion Daniels has the size and talent to excel at the next level. Several schools have paid attention to the talented Lone Star State lineman and have offered him accordingly.
His latest offer, however, came as a shock once the Wolverines entered the picture.
“My coach called me and said I had an offer from Michigan,” Daniels told The Michigan Insider. “I was surprised and extremely excited when coach told me. It means a lot to me and it motivates me more because of all the people I know who went there and are going to attend the university and it pushes me to get better.”
The rich tradition and exposure of playing top games each year at U-M is very intriguing for Daniels.
“The Wolverines have a long traditional history with the players and the big games every week,” said Daniels.
Now with an offer in hand, Daniels sees an opportunity to suit up and play for head coach Jim Harbaugh. An opportunity that Daniels feels like could make him excel and grow as a football player.
“I think he has brought a lot to the game and I feel like I can learn a lot from him,” said Daniels. “I really can (see myself playing for him).”
Despite not visiting campus, Daniels has piqued interest in the Wolverines and is curious to see what the campus and program offers. Daniels plans to make a trip to Ann Arbor this summer and gives the Wolverines an opportunity to make an impression on him.
“On a level of one to 10, my interest is an eight. But it could go up throughout my recruiting process,” said Daniels
