Sulphur Springs (Texas) running back Kendrick Daniels comes from a school that has produced quite a bit of talent over the years. The East Texas program has players on rosters all over the country. It should be no surprise then that recruiters are still making their way to the campus to check on the top talent.
With the influx of college coaches have come offers for the 5-foot-7, 150-pound junior. Daniels has previously been offered by Arkansas State and Iowa State and added another over the weekend.
"I got a new offer from Memphis," Daniels said. "They offered me on Saturday. They called my coach and told him they were offering me. I called and talked to them after that. That was actually my first time talking to them.

"They just told me they were offering me a full ride. They said they really liked my highlight film and they're just trying to get me out there sometime."
In addition to the trio of schools to have extended offers, Daniels is in contact with other programs as well.
"I've been getting letters from Oregon," he said. "Stanford has been sending me a lot of letters too. There are some others that I've got at the house. Oregon has been sending me a lot. I guess they're trying to get me to look at them."
Daniels is planning to make unofficial visits to several campuses this summer. He wants to see the schools that have offered as well as have the opportunity to earn even more.
"I'm going to try to make it to a camp out at Memphis this summer," he said. "I'm going to go to Arkansas's camp as well. I'm probably going to Iowa State's camp too. I'm going to go to a lot of camps, actually. It's a good chance to have everybody see me this summer. I'm just going to take advantage of all the camps."
Daniels does admit that a Big 12 school has his attention piqued at the moment.
"I guess I'd say (Texas) Tech, maybe," he said as to having an early favorite. "I've just always liked Texas Tech. It's Texas Tech; I'm a Texas boy so that's a big deal."
However, do not look for the diminutive rusher to make a decision in the near future.
"Not right now; I'm going to wait," Daniels said of a commitment timeline.
Daniels helped lead Sulphur Springs to a 9-3 record and the second round of the Class 4A state playoffs this past season. He was a first-team all-district selection after rushing for 1,546 yards and 17 touchdowns while adding 20 receptions for 208 yards and another two scores.
