McDaniel: The Next Red Raider?

New Diana offensive lineman Terry McDaniel has narrowed down his list of schools and is nearing a decision. McDaniel informed that the Red Raiders are his current #1, and he may very likely commit to Texas Tech in the coming weeks. Come inside as RaiderPower brings you the latest scoop on this breaking story.

Terry McDaniel is a 6-7, 325 pound anchor at left tackle that takes a lot of pride in protecting his quarterback.

The Diana (Texas) New Diana standout does his job very well and he has already been rewarded for his effort.

"I've been offered by LSU, Colorado, Texas Tech, Kansas State, Arizona, Baylor and Louisiana Tech," McDaniel told

The mammoth lineman has displayed his talent for several coaching staffs this summer and he has one more camp stop on his agenda.

"I went to the Oklahoma State camp here in Texas and I went to Colorado, Texas Tech and Oklahoma," he said "I plan on visiting LSU next weekend for their camp and then I'm through for the summer."

When McDaniel says he is through for the summer the phrase may have a little more meaning to it than some think.

"I plan on probably committing to Texas Tech when I visit there at the beginning of August," he explained. "Lubbock is a nice, clean town and the coaches are great. Their facilities are real impressive too. My dad used to live in Lubbock and I think it's a real nice place to live."

The Lonestar product said that he feels good about the Red Raiders but if he was to change his mind then two schools stand the best chance of changing it for him.

"It would probably be LSU and Kansas State," he said.

"I like how LSU is a powerhouse and their coaches are really good. They also have a lot of players go to the NFL.

"I don't know as much about Kansas State as I do some other schools but I like how they have a young coaching staff and they have a good program and winning tradition."

Will McDaniel be a Red Raider in the near future?
