You would think they’d be able to land the best player from the state of Oklahoma with regularity, right? Well, not this time.
Daniels attended Beggs High School and has been a standout player on the field for years.
Kendal Daniels Commits to Texas A&M
In addition to the Aggies and Sooners, several schools were interested in signing Daniels.
Alabama, Auburn, Baylor, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Kansas, LSU, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Oregon, TCU, Tulsa, and USC gave the safety a scholarship offer. Arkansas also expressed interest.
Kendal Daniels Highlights
Whether Daniels is defending passes or rushing in on a blitz, he is an impact player. His athleticism is off-the-charts for someone his age, and the Beggs defense ran through him.
In 2020, Daniels made 120 tackles and caught four interceptions, even returning one for a touchdown.
At 6-foot-4 and 190 pounds, Daniels could work as a cornerback, but the expectation is he turns that unique frame into a strength and works as A&M’s “center fielder,” helping out wherever he can.
The Texas A&M Aggies always have to go the extra mile to compete with Alabama in the SEC. Players like Kendal Daniels will help bridge the gap between the two teams.
