WR, ��ɉ�ɉ�ɉ��, 190 pounds, 6’3″

Vernon Hills High School

Vernon Hills, Ill.

DaVaris Daniels stated his desire to attend Notre Dame very early in the recruiting process but waited until Sept. 28 to verbally commit to Irish coach Brian Kelly and his staff.

The Vernon Hills standout contributed in nearly every facet his senior season, tallying 16 offensive touchdowns, two special teams scores and one more trip to the end zone from the defensive side of the ball.

His season ended in the Illinois Class 5A quarterfinals.

Irish fans will hope Daniels has the same successes as his father, Washington Redskins defensive end Phillip Daniels. The elder Daniels is now in his 15th year in the NFL, having tallied 62 sacks in his career.
