Daniels picks Iowa
Ohio offensive lineman James Daniels will be joining his brother, LeShun, at Iowa next year. The 6-foot-4, 275-pound Daniels, who Rivals.com ranks as the No. 4 center in the nation, announced his verbal commitment to the Hawkeyes in a ceremony at Warren G. Harding High School this morning.
"I decided to join the University of Iowa," said Daniels. "The main reason why was because I feel extremely comfortable with the coaching staff and they have really good player development there."
Daniels had narrowed his choices down to Iowa, Ohio State, and Alabama in recent weeks. During the recruiting process, he also picked up scholarship offers from Auburn, Northwestern, Penn State, Michigan State, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, West Virginia, and Wisconsin, among others.
At Iowa, the Class of 2015 prospect will be joining his older brother, LeShun Daniels, Jr., a sophomore running back for the Hawkeyes. Their father, LeShun Daniels, Sr., played offensive line at Ohio State in the mid 90's.
