It's A Wrap: Daniel Adderley Commits To Miami

The Miami Hurricanes moved swiftly and closed the deal with 6'6 WR Daniel Adderley of Southside Christian School (Greenville). Inside read about all the details concerning his commitment.

It didn't take the Miami Hurricanes long to come in and receive a commitment from Southside Christian School (Greenville) standout wide receiver Daniel Adderley. Adderley was off to a blazing start in his senior season only to see it shortened to just 3 games due to a broken collarbone. That didn't stop the Hurricanes from extending an offer to him during an in-home visit on Tuesday night.

The 6'6 215 pound Adderley didn't have to think long as he accepted the offer from Miami wide receivers coach Marquis Mosely.

SCPrepNation.com spoke to Adderley right after he gave his commitment and has the exclusive interview.

"Yes sir I just committed to the University of Miami. It went pretty smoothly. They told me a lot about the academics and their goals for me there. He said that his #1 goal is for me to graduate and that's something I really wanted to hear. They talked to me about football and where they wanted me to be with that as well, about how I can help them and they can help me too. I will visit Miami on January 27th."

We asked Adderley to tell us what were the strengths of his play on the gridiron and he responded, "I really know how to use my height. I try to be smarter than most guys my height. I've got good body control and know how to attack the ball. I try to be a leader for my teammates on with my play and off the field too. I run better routes than most tall receivers too. If the ball is in the air then it's mine."

Adderley has a favorite player that he enjoys watching and trying to pick up a few tricks from as well. "My favorite player is Dwayne Jarrett for USC. He's the same height and weight almost as me and it gives me a lot of hope. I like a lot of the things he does on the field."

Playing at Southside Christian Adderley has had head coach Dexter Davis to help him through the recruiting process and he spoke about his head coach. Davis is a former Sumter High School player who went on to star at Clemson University before a great run in the NFL before an injury shortened his pro career.

"It helps a lot to play for Coach Davis. I can really listen to him since he's been there and done that all before. It's easy to look up to him because he understands where I am now. We have a great mutual relationship because of it."

When not on the football field Adderley says he's not different than most teenagers when it comes to social activities. "I like to go the movies and hang out with my friends. I like to play golf too but I haven't played in a while really."
