'05 OH ATH Alex Daniels (Minnesota signee, transfer to Cincinnati)

    Alex Daniels
    Columbus (OH)
    Marion Franklin - Transferring to Brookhaven for his senior year.
    Safety / Outside linebacker

    Height: 6-foot-3
    Weight: 220 pounds
    40-yard dash: 4.52 seconds
    GPA: 3.0

    Recently called a "Freak" by Jeremy Crabtree of Rivals, Daniels was one of the biggest surprises at the Columbus Nike Camp. With great size and speed he could play a number of positions at the next level including TE, S, and OLB being pssobilities. Has the speed to play receiver but didn't catch the ball particularly well at the Nike Camp. Early on Daniels has interest in Ohio State(favorite), Florida State, USC, Purdue and Wisconsin, among others. Currently he is working on his test score and feels if he gets a qualifying score Ohio State will offer. He is being recruited by Luke Fickell.

    Nice update...

    Is it me or are more and more HS kids getting tat's these days... doesn't the parent need to sign off at the tat parlor?

    Nothing against tats... I have a fraternity related one, that was inked back in college... I don't recall that many HS students having them when I was in HS...

    Good question and no, it's not just you. Only one of my friends in high school had one and his name was Tat(Go figure). Seems like more kids have them than don't these days.

    according to BuckNuts, Daniels was offered by tOSU- but he will not make a quick decision- he expects to take all five visits (those might include OU, Miami, NE, Fla and FSU)

    Any idea of what they are looking at him for, LB maybe?

    Duane recently compared him to the late Dru Humphrey as a RB and really loves his size.

    I was thinking the same thing, especially the kid behind Daniels who is "misunderstood." Whatever. Anyway, I found this article yesterday about high school kids in the Cincy area getting sick from this guy running an illegal tatoo operation.

    you know how much JT likes versatility- Alex is the classic case

    he has mentioned that he can play at DE, LB, S,WR, TE and RB- he also mentioned that most schools think he is too big for RB and he might not have the hands for WR-he has not stated whether tOSU was recruiting him for one specific position- my guess is LB (WILL) but maybe he can bulk up to play the LEO position in a few years??

    He seems interested in the three Florida schools... I hope that he is just trying to get his vacations set up for the winter...

    Rivals now has video of Daniels, mostly at RB and a little at Safety. He's a big hitter and and appears to have the mentality to play on that side of the ball. He does not have blazing speed but he's quick, has nice cutting ability and runs hard between the tackles. There weren't any clips of him catching the ball out of the backfield but they did have an interception on defense. Very nice looking prospect.

    He is defintely not a RB, doesn't hit the hole hard, but he sure hits people hard!

    That's funny because I think Duane recently said he has put Daniels as the top RB in state this year and compared him to Dru.

    Duane obviously knows more than I do, but I don't see it. Ringer looks like a natural running back and Daniels doesn't, jsut my opinion though.
