RB Cam McDaniel

CAM McDANIEL

RB, ��ɉ�ɉ��, 192 pounds, 5’10”

Coppell High School

Coppell Texas

If all prospects were evaluated on their productivity in high school, McDaniel might be among the nation’s top prospects. The versatile back rushed for 1,956 yards and 32 touchdowns in his senior season at Coppell against a difficult schedule.

At Notre Dame, he will likely be utilized in a number of ways in Brian Kelly’s offense. McDaniel can be expected to contribute in the kick return game as well as running the ball out wide and catching the ball out of the backfield.

Though he lacks elite timed speed, McDaniel’s elusiveness helped him post big numbers in high school and will come in handy at the college level. His mix of intangibles will be a nice addition to the Irish backfield.
