We first spoke with Daniel Coats (6'3, 212 lbs) of Northridge High School in Utah two months ago. Coats is a big, dominating receiver and he could easily star at a number of other positions in college. Tonight, I had a chance to get a short updated interview with the versatile athlete regarding his recruitment and current season. Below is the text of the interview.
