OL/DL Stanley Daniels Update

Marion Catholic High School in San Diego is where <b>Stanley Daniels</b> plays both tight end and nose tackle. At 6-4 310, you won't find many bigger pass catchers in the country.

The last time we spoke with Daniels it was before the quiet period was finished. He's been a busy guy talking to college coaches from across the country.

"A bunch of coaches called, more than I expected," said Daniels. "I talked to as many as I could. The first to call was Colorado on Sept 1st."

Others to call him on the first day possible included Arizona, UW, WSU, Nebraska, Tennessee, Cal, and Utah.

"I knew the time was coming but I didn't think that many coaches would call."

Coach Rick Neuheisel was the one making the phone call on behalf of Washington. "He said he was very interested in me and that they'd be trying to get me all year. I told him that I'd love to take a trip up there and that I would talk it over with my coach," said Daniels.

"I like Coach Neuheisel. He gets straight to the point and I think he's a good coach."

He has scholarship offers from WSU, Arizona, Cal, Utah, Tennessee, Nebraska, and Colorado. "Washington has not offered yet but hopefully they will," adds Daniels.

He has taken one official visit already, and will definitely take all four of his others. "I went to Nebraska on an official visit. It was lovely, they beat the crap out of Notre Dame," said Daniels.

"I have four more visits to go and I'll chose them wisely. I KNOW that I'll visit Tennessee. Everyone else, I'll wait until after the season to decide."

Daniels's team is 2-0, having defeated their opponents by a combined score of 110-6. He has switched positions on offense and now lines up as a tight end. "I play TE and nose guard. I'm in much better shape than last year, I'm a little faster and I hit the weight room very hard. I am stronger than last year and I'm more mature. I'm a senior and I need to lead by example. I don't want to be the loud guy, I want to be the one to kick someone's butt and lead by my actions on the field," said Daniels.

Although he plays tight end, offensive line is probably a more likely position in college.

He enjoys football very much. "I love it, it's so fun. If you don't have fun, you should quit, no matter what you're doing."

Daniels has a favorite but he hedges his answer when asked. "I think that I'm leaning a little to Nebraska because I've already tripped there. But I am very interested in Tennessee and Washington. I've only been to one school so far so if I had to make a decision, I wouldn't make it," said Daniels.

"But if you are asking me who my leader is, it's Nebraska right now."
