Loyola athlete still hobbled

Quintin Daniels is a 6-0, 175-pound athlete from Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola, and the last time we saw Quintin he was sidelined this spring due to a hamstring injury he suffered at the USC NIKE camp. Well, the hamstring has been causing more problems for Daniels this fall, and the senior-to-be doesn't want to take any unnecessary risks.

"I'm not 100 percent right now," Quintin told Dawgman.com. "I pulled a hamstring earlier in the year and it's still bothering me. I'm not sure how well it's going to hold up but I'm working and trying my best to get out there as soon as I can." Daniels was scheduled to have an MRI yesterday. "They say there might be a buildup of scar tissue. I'm taking it easy right now because I don't want to sacrifice the whole season by doing something stupid now."

In regards to his college recruitment, schools haven't been deterred by his inability to play this spring or summer, as he has standing scholarship offers from UCLA, Cal, Oregon, Washington, Arizona State and Arizona. "I visited Oregon and Cal this summer," he said. "I liked Oregon. It was nice. I liked the coaches and everything. I like the little town out there. The whole town is centered around Oregon football and I really liked that."

And when September 1st rolled around, Quintin forgot that coaches were going to be calling. "USC, Cal and Arizona called already," Daniels said. "I had forgotten all about it, so when the first phone call came I was surprised."

Quintin hasn't set up any official visits yet but has a short list of schools that might make the cut. "I'll probably take trips to UCLA, Oregon Stanford Washington and Cal, maybe."
