If there's one must-get recruit in the 2015 class, it's four-star defensive tackle Jacob Daniel of Clovis North High School in Fresno.
He's 6-5 300 pounds, mobile, agile and agressive. He dominates the line of scrimmage, pushes opponents backward and knocks them down. Powerful and quick, he's a true difference-maker on the defensive front, and as Duck fans have seen, there just aren't many of them to go around, particularly in the Western United States.
What jumps out about him in the highlight video is the power coupled with non-stop effort. He's in the Top 100 of every major recruiting service, one of a handful of elite tackles in the entire country.
Daniel originally committed to Washington before the coaching change so distance is not an issue. USC is pursuing him heavily, and coaches Steve Sarkisian and Josh Wilcox already have a relationship with him.
Eye-catching talent: if you went to a high school game at Tom Flores Stadium in October, Jacob Daniel would be the player you'd notice (Craig Moffitt, varsitypreps.com photo). He's a rare talent with the ability to dominate a game from the middle of the field.
