UCLA Right There for Daniels

Receiver prospect <b>Quintin Daniels</b> is feeling like his old self again after battling through a number of injuries this year. His recruiting is moving along, but it will take a back seat until his high school team finish playing in the playoffs...

Quintin Daniels, 6-0, 175, Los Angeles Loyola, has had an injury-plagued year that included a hamstring injury from track last spring and ankle and hip injuries from football. He mentioned that he is finally feeling 100% healthy. "I am feeling alright actually," Daniels said.


Asked which schools he is hearing from the most ately, he said, "I probably have to say Stanford, Washington, UCLA, USC and Oregon. That would be my top five. They are all calling pretty regularly."


All the schools have offered except USC, and Daniels has yet to submit his application to Stanford.


Only one visit is in the process of being finalized. "I've set up a visit to Washington. It is supposed to be December 21, but I may wait until January to take it. I am going to wait until the playoffs are over then I'll set up the other visits."


Loyola (8-3) is looking for revenge when it hosts St. John Bosco (9-2) Friday night at Glendale high school in the second round of the CIF Southern Section playoffs. These two teams met in October when Bosco defeated Loyola on local television 26-14. "We are practicing right through Thanksgiving for this one."


Daniels did attend the USC-UCLA game and was asked if a one-sided game like that would affect his recruiting. He said, "Not really. I was surprised they got beat so bad, but it happens sometimes."
