Washington has received the letter of intent from wide receiver, Darrell Daniels. Daniels hails from Freedom High School (Oakley, Calif.) and has been solid to UW since giving his verbal commitment on June 26, 2012. After taking his official visit the weekend of January 18, Daniels tweeted out that he would not be taking any more visits and was 100 percent to Washington. He chose the Huskies over many other respected programs such as Notre Dame, Oklahoma and USC.
During his senior season at Freedom, Daniels caught 54 passes for 957 yards and 11 touchdowns, leading to a unanimous four star rating from ESPN, Scout and Rivals. He brings a little bit of everything to the table; from athleticism, to hands, to size, Daniels has it all. Not only did the 6’3” receiver catch 54 passes, but he also ran for 332 yards on 40 carries and nine touchdowns while at Freedom.
There is no doubt that Daniels will contribute immediately for the Huskies; the only question is where. He could be used in a Kendyl Taylor-esque role next season where he sees time as a wide receiver and tailback. Expect to see more of him at receiver though due to the depth UW has at running back.
