Daniels has top-3

Quintin Daniels is a 6-0, 175-pound athlete from Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola, and the Cubs just got their first league win with help from Quintin. They lost to Mater Dei and St. John Bosco but just beat Bobby Whithorne and Santa Margarita, 7-0 to up their season record to 7-2. Daniels had a key pick, his fifth of the year, to help lead the Cubs with a strong defensive effort.

"It's a new league for us, and we're adjusting to it," Quintin told Dawgman.com. "We haven't been playing to our potential. Our first couple of games we took too lightly and we've had injuries too. We haven't stepped up to the challenge."

Daniels has also been fighting the injury bug with hamstring, ankle and hip problems, but he'll never use that as an excuse. He was recently invited to the US Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas. "I was suprised," he said. "They told me before the season started."

That kind of interest can get schools buzzing when it comes to recruiting, but Daniels is taking it slow. "I'm waiting until the end of the season before I decide where I want to go and what trips I want to set up," he said.

At this point it looks like Oregon, Washington, Cal, Stanford and UCLA are going to be the visits Quintin sets up. All but Stanford have offered. He wants to play receiver in college and his top 3 right now are Stanford, UCLA and Oregon.

What is Quintin looking for when it comes to the next level? "A good academic school, decent football record, nice environment, nice people," he said. "I'm looking to start as soon as possible, but if that doesn't happen it's OK. It's not a priority." He's planning on majoring in business.
