Daniel prepped at Branham (San Jose, Ca.) High School and wasn't aware of the qualification process to earn a scholarship to a four-year school.
"When I was in high school I didn't know about taking the SAT or the ACT or anything like that," Daniel told JCFootball.com. "I just decided really early on that I needed to get to a good JUCO and that was the way I was going to need to go."
Playing safety for the Dons the past two years, Daniel has totaled over 90 tackles to go along with six interceptions and 13 passes defensed while he was on campus.
"We played mainly one deep safety so the strong safety was the guy they expected to come up and be in run support," Daniel noted. "I played the strong safety as a freshman and then this year I played the free safety spot.
"I also played some corner in nickle packages, over the slot, so they sorta had me all over."
On the recruiting side of things, Daniel has been hearing from several schools, but none have offered just yet.
"I've personally talked to BYU and Colorado and my coaches have talked to San Jose State and couple D-1AA schools," Daniel said. "I think everyone is really just waiting to make sure I graduate before they really step up and offer me."
Daniel is well on his way to graduating, sporting a 2.9 overall GPA, and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
