Darrion Daniels Talks Under the Lights

The No 14 ranked defensive tackle checks in from Dallas (TX) Bishop Dunne. The 6-foot-4, 275-pound standout is one of the most heavily recruited players regardless of position in the class of 2015. Daniels was not participating in the camp Friday night but was able to soak in the experience.

Darrion Daniels holds offers from Arizona State, Arkansas, Baylor, California, Colorado, Iowa, Louisville, LSU, Miami, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas Tech and Texas to name a few. The defensive line recruits in attendance stole the show on the night as it was a great group overall. Defensive line coach Chris Rumph is one of the most intense, in your face coach you will find and that is exactly what Daniels is looking for. Daniels talked about the overall experience.

"First off, seeing how coach Rumph had his own defensive linemen out here coaching and showing the other players how to do things was cool," Daniels said. "They are coming together and they are determined to teach the players how to do it the right way. I was talking to one player, and he was saying since the new staff has been here everything has been increasing a tremendous amount, and everything is going well."

Spending time with current players is something Daniels feels is a very important piece of the recruiting process. He is looking forward to coming back to Texas and spending more time with the players.

"It helps me out trying to get a feel for the coaches and getting some inside information," Daniels said.

Coach Rumph is a high energy, high motor, very intense in your face coach that is going to get the best of your abilities. Those are the characteristics Daniels is looking for in a coach.

"That's the kind of coaching I like," Daniels said. "I like having a coach in your face, always yelling at you. My dad always says if the coach isn't talking to you that means you are doing something wrong so if the coach is in your face he sees something inside of you he is trying to get out."

Bishop Dunne will hold a media day soon, and Daniels will name his top ten and soon after the top five. His goal is to be committed by December.
