SMU Visit For Daniels?

Midlands Recruiting
Posted Feb 25, 2011


Kendrick Daniels is one of fastest players in the state of Texas, and it's possible that he'll be checking out the SMU campus next weekend.

"I talked to Coach (Jeff) Reinebold yesterday," said Kendrick Daniels. "He wants me to come to SMU next weekend. I'll try to make it over and check it out with my dad and a couple of friends.

"He (Reinebold) was talking about how they're looking for a bigger back, but that I might be used in the slot. I don't really know about that. I can catch, but I'm so connected to the running back position. If I gained a little size and weight - maybe 20 pounds - and kept my speed (4.3), then maybe I could play RB."

Last year, Daniels rushed for 1,546 yards on 164 carries with 18 touchdowns; that's 9.43 yards per carry, in case you don't have a calculator handy. He also caught 20 passes for 210 yards and three TDs.

"I play big," said the 5-foot-7, 150-pound dynamo. "I have a big heart, and I love football. I went straight to varsity in high school - no JV - and I try hard."

Last weekend, Daniels attended Baylor's Junior Day and he was invited to North Texas tomorrow, although he'll be unable to attend to due to a track meet (the first of the season). He was also invited to Kansas' Junior Day.

"I liked Baylor," said Daniels. "They have great athletic facilities and everything, but the part I liked the most was their academics. They help you stay on top of your grades. Their coaches told me to make sure I make their camps."

Daniels, who is also receiving mail from Arkansas, rushed for 272 yards and two TDs on 22 carries vs. Texas (Texarkana) High. He also eclipsed the 200-yard yard mark in a 24-carry, 284-yard (two TD) performance in the final game of the season (playoff loss to Bastrop).

Sulphur Springs, which is a Class 4A school, went 9-3 in 2010.
