Daniels makes it official

In a strange twist of fate, Stanley Daniels, a 6-4, 300-pound lineman from San Diego (Calif.) Marian Catholic has cast his lot with the Washington Huskies over the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

"I just signed my letter and faxed it in to Washington," Daniels told Dawgman.com today from Marian Catholic. "I called Coach Neuheisel to let him know and he was delighted."

The switch helps turn the tide a bit for the Huskies today, who lost a bidding war earlier in the day for La Quinta running back Freddie Collins, who signed with San Diego State.

Why the sudden change? "Well, me and my family decided that Washington was the best place for me to grow up not only as a football player, but also as a man. I feel like Coach Neuheisel is the kind of coach that can help me grow up into a man."

Daniels expects to come in as an offensive lineman, but that's not set in stone yet. "I just want to come in and have Coach Neuheisel and Coach (Brent) Myers help me to become a better player," Daniels said. "They haven't told me if I'm playing offense or not. I guess you could say I'm coming in as just a lineman right now."

Stanley wanted Husky fans to know this. "I'm coming up there as soon as I can and expect this freshman class to make a lot of noise in Seattle this year."
