"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.
