DaVaris Daniels, son of Washington Redskins DE Phillip Daniels, verbally committed to play college football for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, according to a story on Scouts.com.
Phillip Daniels is the most effective twit on the Redskins. He's open, inviting and has tweeted DaVaris' accomplishments on Twitter for over a year. Daniels has 4,819 Twitter followers.
Young Daniels is a Rivals.com Four-Star wide receiver at Vernon Hills (Illinois) High School. He narrowed his choices to the Fighting Irish and the Miami Hurricanes before deciding on The Irish Tuesday night. New Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly swayed his decision to to go to South Bend.
Phillip Daniels will always be a favorite Redskin, but as a Spartan alum, this will be my only congratulatory note for young DaVaris until he leaves that nest of heathen savages.
Just doing some quick math here: redshirt freshman in 2011; play two years; declare for the 2014 NFL Draft. Hope the Redskins scouting department isn't asleep on this.
Correction: Fighting Irish and Redskins fan Rob Kemp provides this clarification--Notre Dame does not redshirt freshmen. If, as a freshman, a player does not enter any game his first year, then he is eligible to play an extra year after his 4th year at the school. Its all a coach's decision at that point.
Mr. Kemp and I exchanged a funny series of emails about Dan Snyder, drinking Kool-Ade and irrational thoughts because I told him the Skins would beat the Eagles this weekend. Hey, it you don't have hope, you don't have life.
