    I share WR's enthusiasm for this offer.:thumbsup:

    McDaniel plays with a mean streak that will be effective on either side of the ball at the college level. He was a kid that blew up during the spring evaluation period and is getting looks from just about every Pac-12 school now. Really hope we can get into his top group now that we have offered.

    If some of you guys read this that aren't into recruiting, I recommend watching his highlight films. It's literally entertaining to watch and should help with the football void of spring/summer.

    Damn, that kid is mean. I felt sorry for some of those db's and lb's lol. He looks like one of those guys that I hated to have to try and tackle cause you knew damn well it was gonna hurt lol. Geez, he wasnt just running over guys, he was knocking them backwards a few yards. Dude is a pure hitter whether he has the ball or not, could play both sides no doubt. I hope we have a shot and props to the staff for offering, dude is obviously a player.

    wow, some pretty nasty truck sticks in those videos. Power-backs in high school worry me the most when they come to the next level. Lets face it, Pac 12 linebackers are not going to get bullied around like those high school kids. McDaniel reminds me a lot of a Demetrius Sumler when he was in high school. Sumler was a little faster, but had very similar videos where he would mess dudes up... I remember being tickled to death when he chose us over boise state, and then reality set in. All those San Diego records that Sumler crushed (including reggie bush), meant nothing because he was slow and wasn't able to knock around the college linebackers like he did in high school. Maybe EB can make McDaniel a one-cut monster, but I think that there are a lot better RB's that we have our eye on...

    FWIW, I think McDaniel is going to end up at LB in college. He could play either position, but he played LB at some camps this spring and was impressive.

    Its funny because in the vids, you can even tell the guys tackling him dont want too, contact is soft and almost like a "I hope this is enough for someone else to get to him" Good Stuff

    I hate you man.

    I can see your concern, but I think McDaniel would be great at the college level. He looks more Ron Dayne than Demetrius Sumler to me. That said, even if he doesn't impress at RB, there's always LB to fall back on. Either way, we win.

    You guys suck, let my man McDaniel tote the rock! Yall probably would've moved Ron Dayne and Toby Gerhart to LB. :devil:

    :lol:

    I just think McDaniel is going to have the ideal size to step in and contribute at LB from day one. I also love his mean streak for the defensive side of the ball, plus he seems to have good instincts in flowing to the ball.

    I don't disagree that he looks good at LB, I just love me some powerback. Hopefully we get McDaniel and Payne, that would be heaven.

    Lame. Hopefully he's the first of many to not want to put up with their lies.

    The UC system allows for academic exceptions in admission requirements for prospective students with special ability. Cal has opted to lump in football and basketball players with musicians, artists and savants in order to improve its sports programs. UCLA, conversely, has chosen not to use this loophole.

    He showed well (at LB:smile2:) this past weekend at the B2G Elite Camp in California. Several top prospects were there and he stood out. Here is what Rivals had to say about him:

    I know you like him at running back, WR, but I really think he is a star in the making at LB.

    He has an early top three of Arizona State, Washington, and UCLA. I get the feeling his favorites could change quite a bit throughout the process though. Really hope we can get him out to Boulder.

    I like him at LB, but I'd honestly bring him in as a fullback. I think he'd start there as a true freshman.

    He could play a lot as a LB as a true freshman. I think he would be the most talented LB to come to Boulder since Jon Major.
