Loyola athlete taking time

Quintin Daniels is a 6-0, 180-pound athlete from Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola, and ever since the spring it seems like Quintin has been fighting the injury bug. He was hampered by a hamstring that limited him during camping season, and now that it has healed he's trying to fend off the nicks and dings that regularly accompany players during a season.

"Everything's going alright," Quintin told Dawgman.com tonight. "We're 5-1 but we just lost to Mater Dei 28-10. I don't have anymore hamstring problems. That was done the week before our first game. Now I'm just struggling with some small stuff."

Daniels has 4 picks so far this year. "I have 7 catches so far this year, but 6 of them came last game," he said. "We've been running the ball a lot so far but that's great. I'll do whatever I can to help the team win."

Colleges haven't been deterred by Daniels' battles with the injury bug. "Most schools are recruiting me as an athlete and giving me the option of playing where I want to," he said. "But I really like receiver. I like having the ball in my hands."

UCLA, California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona and Arizona State are the schools that have stepped up with scholarship offers, but that's the farthest thing from his mind at present. "I'm going to wait until the end of my season to set up trips. I need to look at my schedule." Right now Stanford, Oregon, Washington and possibly UCLA will get visits from Daniels. "I don't know if I'm going to waste a visit on UCLA, just because they are around the corner and I've already been there a lot."

Daniels is already fully qualified but is retaking the SAT to improve his score.
