Track standout thinking football as well

July 12, 2013 

Class of 2015 WR Deondre Daniels of Goose Creek played defensive back as a sophomore but will make the move to the offense this season. Daniels runs track and is getting a lot of interest from several schools, including USC, and would like to play football as well.

The schools showing interest in track and field are USC, Alabama, Minnesota, Princeton and Virginia Tech. According to his father, Anthony Daniels, Daniels has already attended a football camp at USC. "He's been there once and they wanted to get him back up there for The Showcase camp but he is not going to be able to go,"said his father. Daniels will be at the USTA Junior Olympics competing in track and field that week. He competes in the 200M and 400M events.

As for football, his father says Daniels is very specific in his interests. "He just told me he wants to go to an SEC school," he said. "He talks a lot about LSU. That's the school he grew up liking."

Daniels ran a 47.9 400M and ran the 200M in 22 flat this past weekend. He does not have any favorites.
