Daniels Wants to Visit Texas Tech

RaiderPower.com caught up with Bishop Dunne defensive tackle Darrion Daniels to see where he stands with the Red Raiders and the rest of his recruitment. The 6-foot-4, 275-pound Daniels is rated as a four-star prospect and the No. 14 player at his position in the 2015 class by Scout.com.

Bishop Dunne defensive tackle Darrion Daniels plans on taking a visit to the school his father played for soon.

"Hopefully I'll be down there before spring. This summer I know I'll definitely be going down there."

Daniels is the son of former Texas Tech defensive end Tony Daniels.

The four-star prospect is certainly focused on winning a state title next season, but he also has expectations for himself in the classroom.

"My GPA is like a 3.1 right now. I want it to be a 3.5 or 3.6 by the time I graduate."

Daniels said he should already have his GPA higher, but the transition from public school to private school was difficult.

The Bishop Dunne star currently holds six offers from Big 12 Conference schools which includes all the schools in Texas and both of the institutions in Oklahoma. He has 14 offers outside the conference for a total of 20.

Daniels said he likes Texas Tech and the fact his father played for the Red Raiders is far from the only reason. One of the key reasons is the coaching staff and he has a special relationship with one coach in particular.

"Me and coach (Trey) Haverty have a pretty good connection. Coach Haverty is really cool."

The 6-foot-4 defensive star also mentioned Kevin Curtis and Kliff Kingsbury as two coaches he enjoys communicating with.
