Brian Kelly continues to build the Class of 2011 into one of the top in the country with the addition of DaVaris Daniels. The 6-foot-2, 175-pounds Daniels, from Vernon Hills (IL) High School, will bring a great skill set to the Irish and give Kelly the type of receiver he loves to work with. What To Like
