Darrell Daniels decided this weekend on his unofficial visit to Seattle and the Washington Huskies that he would commit to be a Dawg. He is the eighth confirmed verbal to Coach Steve Sarkisian and his Husky staff for the 2013 class.
Just committed to Washington #godawgs!

Daniels is the best wide receiver on the West Coast according to Scout.com and has big time ability. He was holding offers from all over the nation and about every school in the Pac-12. He is also one of Washington’s top rated players in this class along with Troy Williams and UW’s second receiver for 2013, the other being Sammie Long of Lakes, WA.
Daniels had visited a variety of schools unofficially and there were some that thought he may be leaning towards USC. Daniels said that Coach Tosh Lupoi helped influence him that Washington was the right place to play.
He is so pumped about his decision to become a Husky that he told Brandon Huffman of Scout.com that he was already starting to convince others to come to Washington and play with him. He won’t be the only one as Lupoi and Sarkisian are blazing a recruiting trail across the West Coast.
Are there more recruits on the way?
One that may be close to deciding is Sebastian LaRue according to Greg Biggins. Granted the article is about USC offering and how that may make him push up his time-table of committing. I have heard that UW is right there in the thick of things with him. However, the decision by Daniels may help him be pushed another direction, maybe USC?
Daquawn Brown is another that has been piling offers and recently was elated to pick up a UW offer. However, he may be someone that is enjoying the fact that he is picking up lots of offers and commits late. We will see.
