Cowboys get 25th commitment to 2010 Class

New, 3 comments
Austin Daniels a 5'10 170lb DB from Mt. SAC (CA) committed to the Wyoming Cowboys for the 2010 season thus becoming the 25th and final recruit. Barring any surprises the Pokes are finished with recruiting two days before the February 3rd signing date.

It's interesting that the Pokes went with a JUCO DB to complete the class. The Pokes already had three DB commits prior to Daniels and the Cowboys are returning all their starters in the secondary next year. I would have loved for the Pokes to grab one more High School Wide Receiver or TE to complete the class.

Daniels finished the year with 55 tackles and 2 interceptions. Though small in stature Daniels is quick with a 4.45 time for the 40. Arizona, Arizona State, Auburn, Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas State and Oregon all had interest in Daniels but it appears that none had officially offered him.

Coach Christensen and his staff have a system they use for recruiting that is different than most schools. So if they like Daniels then I'm glad he is on board. They know the team and where they need to add depth so they must really like Daniels. It is pretty hard to find much on him besides stats. There are no pictures or highlight videos posted on the web of Daniels so he is definitely an under the radar recruit.

Once the full class is finalized and introduced on Wednesday expect a full analysis from Cowboy Altitude. Congrats to the Cowboys staff for having such a successful year recruiting. I doubt they rest much as recruiting for 2011 has already begun.
