California WR, discusses his offer from Army
Wide Receiver Andrew Daughtery is the latest prospect to pull in an offer from the Black Knights of Army and the 6-foot-2, 185 pounder out of Bakersfield (California) Centennial High School is elated to say the least.
"I talked to Coach Guyader (Andy) today," shared Daughtery in his conversation with GoBlackKnights.com on Sunday. "I'm actually very interested in Army. I've liked the coaches that I've talked to and they are great. The whole Army experience seems cool."
But it was approximately two weeks ago when he was officially offered by the Army coaching staff. "I have researched the whole West Point experience and it's very cool," shares the dual sport senior, who plays centerfield for Centennial.
Although the Black Knights are his only offer, the swift wide receiver says he is also hearing from Cal-Poly, UC-Davis, Northern Arizona, Cornell, Penn and Brown.
In 2011 as a junior, Daughtery pulled down approximately 25 receptions and hopes to build on that this upcoming season, which has already kicked off for Centennial ... although not the outcome that California prospect was hoping for.
Mission Viejo we lost 35-0.... it was a very tough game for us," declared Daughtery, when discussing Friday's non-league game while hosting the Diablos.
"Next game is against a team (Redwood) that isn't as good. The team we play this weekend, we played them last year and beat them pretty bad, so we have a good chance."
So, what are the attributes that Daughtery is looking for in selected a college? "A place where I can excel athletic, meaning on the field," says the student-athlete who maintains a 4.1 GPA out of a 4.0, who says that he plans going into college undecided (major) if he can. "But also where I can get a good education. Like a well known academic institution, that is on par with football."
In addition to his talents offensively, the California prospect, who is primarily being recruited at receiver, will line-up defensively at cornerback. Daughtery has been time with a personal best of 4.5 in the forty, which he ran at the NUC (National Underclassmen) combine.
There will be more to come on Daughtery in later GoBlackKnights.com coverage.
