Loyola WR Expands List

Instead of narrowing his list, Los Angeles Loyola wide receiver prospect Quintin Daniels has expanded his list of favorite schools a bit...

Quintin Daniels, 6-0, 180, Los Angeles Loyola, appears to have increased the numbers of schools on his latest list.

"I've really got a top five," Daniels said. "They are Stanford, Oregon, UCLA, Washington and Cal."

When asked who was recruiting him the hardest, Daniels said, "The school that has been contacting me the most is Oregon. I have six offers so far, so I would have to say that those schools are recruiting me the hardest. I have offers from UCLA, Cal, Oregon, Washington, Stanford and Arizona State." UCLA was the first school to offer Daniels a scholarship.

Daniels has not set any official visits yet, and he would like to wait until Loyola's season is over to do so. "I'm not sure that will happen, but that's what I am planning on doing right now."

The swift wide receiver said his decision on a school would be difficult since the coaches recruiting him are doing such a great job. "Actually, a lot of the coaches have made great impressions on me. I really like all the coaches who are recruiting me right now, so it is really hard to say that one stands out above the rest."

After nursing a hamstring injury suffered while running track in the early spring, Daniels says it appears to be close to 100% healed. He did, however, sit out Loyola's last game. "I didn't play last week because I sprained my ankle against Muir in the third game. I've only played two of the four games." Regarding the hamstring injury, he said, "It's fine actually. No problems with it right now."

Despite the injuries, Daniels has been playing both ways this season. "I've had three interceptions at safety. We're 4-0 right now. We just played Antelope Valley on Friday night, and we won again." Daniels says he will be playing this week against Banning.

Daniels is close friends with fellow Loyola athlete Omar Wilkes, the basketball prospect who committed to Kansas last week. Asked about Wilkes' decision, Daniels said, "I guess that's the school for him. He really likes the coaches, and they treat him really well. I respect his decision. He'll do great there."

Daniels is working on completing his Stanford application, and he is retaking the SAT this Saturday morning. "I plan on making it up to the UCLA-Oregon game after the exam."
