The Huskies added a very good player on Saturday.
The Washington Huskies added a very talented played maker to their recruiting class of 2013 on Saturday morning, securing a commitment from four-star wide receiver Darrell Daniels. He's ranked 156th overall in the entire nation according to Rivals, and is the 22nd-best receiver in his class.
Daniels, who hails from Oakley, California, had offers from most Pac-12 schools and powerhouses all around the country, including Auburn, Nebraska and Oklahoma.
You can find his recruiting profile here.
Daniels tweeted out his news early Saturday morning, which must have been quite the surprise for Huskies fans everywhere.
Just committed to Washington #godawgs!— Darrell Daniels (@Drinkmysuccess) June 16, 2012
Most feel that Daniels is the best receiver on the west coast in 2013, and he'll add to a recruiting class at UW that is turning out to be a promising one. It's important to remember that these kids are just 17 years old and likely at least two years away from seeing any real playing time in college, but building depth is a key aspect of building a program.
Washington appears to be a program on the upswing, and adding talented playmakers such as Darrell Daniels can only mean good things down the road in an improving Pac-12 conference.
