USAAAB: Daly's New Leader

SAN ANTONIO --- Charlotte (N.C.) Ardrey Kell punter Corbin Daly decommitted from Texas about a month ago, and now has a new leader.

Daly wasn't expecting to develop relationships at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. After all, punters do tend to spend a lot of time by themselves. One person Daly has spent a significant amount of time with is his roommate and special teams comrade kicker Freeman Jones, a UNC commitment.

"I didn't think I was going to come here and make all these friends but I have made a lot of good friends," Daly said. "I just think everyone thinks since you're a kicker so they don't want to hang out with you sometimes, but it's good I am roommates with Freeman [Jones] so I have met a lot of friends."

Daly has been hearing from a few schools a bit closer to home since decommiting.

"[Texas] was just too far away from my family, I just couldn't handle being that far away," Daly said. "I am hearing from North Carolina, South Carolina a lot and Clemson some too."

The Tar Heels have emerged as an early favorite for Daly.

. "I have been hearing from Coach Brewer a good amount and we a have a good relationship," Daly said. "Right now, UNC is my leader."

The Tar Heels' staff might be getting a helping hand in recruiting Daly from the four Carolina commitments -- including his roommate, Jones -- who are spending the week down in San Antonio.

"Caleb Henderson, he is from around me too, so its been fun hanging out with those guys."

It sounds like a decision is coming soon.

"Yeah, I think I could be getting close [to a decision]," Daly said. "I don't know about this week but it could definitely be soon."
