Ware County Athlete Names Five

One of the top 2008 athletes in South Georgia is Ware County running back/safety prospect Victor Daniels. GAVSV.com caught up with Daniels and he named his top five schools.

Ware County's Victor Daniels carried 70 times for 825 yards and 25 touchdowns as a junior.

He is a super athlete who lines up at a number of different positions on offense.  Tailback is his primary position, but Daniels has made an impact at several other positions including fullback and slot receiver. 

He runs low to the ground, has great speed and good hands out of the backfield.  Whether it is running or receiving, he is a threat to go the distance anytime he touches the ball.

A number of schools are recruiting Daniels as a free safety.  At 5-foot-8, 181-pounds, he tallied 36 tackles, 4 interceptions and 16 broken up passes. Due to his size and athleticism, Daniels could be better suited for a free safety role at the next level.

"I'm getting interest from Vanderbilt, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina St., South Carolina, Wake Forest and Duke," said Daniels. 

Daniels was one of the top 100 prospects selected to participate in the 3rd Annual Kennedy/CES Georgia Invitational on February 18th.  He turned in a shuttle time of 4.53 seconds and a 4.47 second forty. His 38-inch vertical jump was second best out of all of the running backs.

"I think I could have done better in my forty," said Daniels. "I didn't have on the right shoes.  The shoes I had on were kind of heavy, so I think my forty time should have been a little better.  I probably could have done better in the shuttle and "L" Drill as well.  I was pretty happy with my vertical jump."

Daniels said five schools are currently at the top of his list.

"I like Florida, N.C. State, Vanderbilt, Georgia and Wake Forest," said Daniels.

What will be the biggest factor in his decision?

"I'm looking at the number of NFL players they produce," Daniels said. "Playing time is very important. The coaching staff is pretty important, but I can get along with pretty much anybody."
