Daniels at number 11 on this list, the number 2 overall WR according to it. I am still baffled as to why we haven't seemed to press this legacy at all... :huh:

I really wish we would and have a feeling we will wish we did if we don't.

the coaches have guys higher on their list. the coaches' rankings may not match up with what others are looking at.. right now we have 3 wrs and will be taking 4 total and 1 athlete. also davaris has been told get to campus, but phillip and his son can't even make it down to athens.

Suck that it seems that Philip can't seem to get them down here, maybe he doesn't want to go this far from home or something. Right now we have Conley, Scott and Witchett, right? Who grabs those last two spots, Peake and Greene or Benjamin?

Also, are we looking a Ja'Juan Story at all? Just curious because 6'4", 190, running a 4.37 is pretty freaking nuts with a receiver that already has good hands and is good at going to get the ball at the high point.

Philip Daniels actually wants uga to offer. He has been on our boards a lot complaining about it. He was instructed by uga to come down with Davaris and visit, but he hasn't found the opportunity to. Davaris wants that offer also, but UGA coaches seem to like other guys more. We do have the 3 you mentioned and they want to add a 4th (peake or another top national guy) and an athlete like chris milton who can play either cb/wr. Yep uga is recruiting story. He has an offer. I hope we can get him to camp/visit in June.

Daniels plans to take his time

By Cliff Smith

3.20.10

Every recruit and recruitnik alike knows how crazy college football recruiting can become. For some it’s crazier than others and for some the ‘crazy’ is what makes the experience so much fun. Vernon Hills (Illinois) wide receiver prospect Davaris Daniels would be one of the ‘some’ on both counts.

“Some dude asked me ‘what's the one talent that I have over all the rest of the 2011 recruits’. I told him I was probably the best poet in the 2011 class,” quipped Daniels when talking about some of the off the wall things that have happened during his recruitment.

After talking with him for a while, it’s obvious from those kind of comments that Daniels is enjoying the madness and just taking it all in stride. “Yeah, I'm not trying to put anybody out there yet. I mean, there's a few that kind of stand out right now. A couple of them. But, I don't want to rush into anything. Kind of wait it out, you know?”

As for things that could help the cause of an inquiring school, Daniels had this to say: “I'm just looking for a good coaching staff that I know can win, a team that I could see myself fitting in with, if they have a specific plan in mind for me. That's pretty much it.”

Diving deeper into what that ‘specific plan’ might include generated more interesting thoughts from Daniels, “If they’re talking about passing the ball a lot, that’s cool and all, but… Scheme-wise, it doesn’t matter much. I just want to have an opportunity to get in and win at the same time. If that takes putting the ball in the running backs hands, I'm fine.”

At this point, I must admit to being a bit confused. This is the starting quarterback for his high school team who also happens to be receiving all kinds of attention and offers to play wide receiver at the major college level. Aren’t guys like this supposed to be looking for “spread” offenses and video game like passing numbers?

“Yeah, but still, I mean eventually running the ball opens things up for the receivers, you know. Whatever it takes,” insisted Daniels. Even if that means cracking down to block defensive ends and linebackers on occasion? “I mean, I'm not there already to handle that on that level. But, I see myself getting there. I know it takes work.”

So is it safe to say all offers have been to play wide receiver? “Purdue talked some about quarterback. Notre Dame and Arkansas want to use me for a wildcat package. But that’s it. The rest are all wide receiver.”

The rest includes schools that have offered like Illinois, Iowa, Miami (FL), Michigan, Oregon, and Wisconsin. In addition to those offers, some schools showing plenty of interest are Ohio State, Alabama, Oklahoma, Georgia, and Tennessee.

“I get a butt-load of Tennessee letters every day,” said Daniels with a laugh. “It's crazy how many letters they send. Them, Alabama, Oklahoma sometimes like 7 letters a day each. Handwritten, all kinds. Georgia’s supposed to offer some time during the Spring.”

At a point, some recruits can become numb to the attention and even take for granted the effort schools have to expend to build a relationship with them. To that Daniels responds, “It means a lot to me that an Arkansas or Oklahoma wants to know about me. They haven't really talked to me much but it's good to know I'm reaching out to so many places. Some schools kind of come out of nowhere and it’ll surprise me. But, still, my name is out there so I can’t complain.”

As for the Buckeyes, most contact has been of the digital variety. “I text OSU all the time and I might catch one of their spring practices with Evan. They haven’t offered, but it’s going pretty good with them.”

For those who don’t know, Evan is Daniels’ teammate Evan Spencer. The two of them have been friends since they were little kids and have talked about playing together in college. “I mean, we hope so. We got a lot of the same offers right now. Hopefully it comes down to that. I mean it's not set in stone yet. We're still just trying to wait it out to see where we each end up.”

It’s clear that Daniels would welcome the chance to continue to benefit from their on-field chemistry, “I mean, Evan. You can't say nothing else but try to explain what kind of person Evan is. He's almost like any other coach out there. We just push each other to be the best. I mean we just make a good team.”

Daniels also credits his dad for making him a better player. His dad is current Washington Redskin defensive end Phillip Daniels. Of course having a father who currently plays in the NFL exposes a player to all kinds of coaching and methods used at the highest level. The funny thing is most of what he’s developed thanks to his dad, has nothing to do with professional techniques.

“No one knows, but my dad actually played a little bit of QB in high school. When they threw me in at QB this year, I didn't really know too much footwork and what I had to do. But he made me so much better. Then defensively, I played free safety and he used to play linebacker. I mean he's always helped me out on the field but he does as much with me off the field. I just appreciate everything he has to offer,” said Daniels admiringly.

However his best attribute he can thank his dad for is probably his speed. That too has little to do with his dad’s access to professional training. Asked how much he takes after his dad (who is currently listed at 6’6”/305 lbs on the Redskins official site), Daniels suppressed his laughter long enough to say, “Not much I guess, but running from butt whoopin’s is probably why I’m so fast!”

When asked if the closeness he feels to his dad or Evan will affect his decision, Daniels makes it clear that it won’t. “They know it’s my decision. I’m the one that has to live with it so they leave it in my hands. But I'm kind of just relaxing, kind of waiting. It's not a big deal, not yet.”

That leads to the questions of what factors will affect his decision and when one might come. “Distance won’t. Not at all. Oh not at all. I got a lot of family in the south and all over. So it'd just be the same thing down there or wherever. Leaving Chicago winters behind wouldn’t be a bad thing,” he admitted. “I imagine I’ll take all my visits and figure out where’s best. Me and Evan have talked about waiting a little bit longer as far as narrowing it down, maybe around October.

One thing is for sure. Daniels won’t have any trouble expressing him self when decision time comes. I wondered if he would have a verse or a rhyme to announce his decision when he commits. He just slyly said, “I’ll have to practice one for you. I’ll work one out, you’ll see.”

Looking forward to it, Double D…

67. Davaris Daniels

6'3", 190 / WR (11) / Vernon Hills (IL)

Early Projected Ranking: 5.9/

Ok, so he isn't deciding for a while and I would bet one of those officials he is planning to take to Athens, if not before. I thought I had heard he was on the verge of a decision. This is tharinger, though, so take that into account. Also, its about a month old yeah, but if we were apparently offering then, what changed? And I haven't seen any direct quotes from him giving a different time for his commit, so...

One other thing, I can handle us not taking the kid, but UT had better not get him. I can't handle them take two, elite WR that should have been UGA locks in back-to-back years. :D
