Henrico Warriors running back Eric McDaniel (2021 RB 6-0 210lbs) took a trip down to Blacksburg to visit with Head Coach Justin Fuente and staff this past weekend.
The class of 2021 prospect stated, “I took the trip down there to bond with the coaches and current players.” Currently McDaniels holds official offers from over 20 power five conference schools, including Virginia Tech, Virginia, Michigan, Florida, West Virginia, South Carolina, and Texas A&M.
It is unclear where Virginia Tech or any school for that matter ranks on his list, but one thing is for certain, McDaniel’s will receive more offers and attention from potential suitors over the next few years. In his sophomore year, McDaniel’s rushed for over 1,200 yards on 145 carries (8.6/YPC) and 14 touchdowns. Coming out the backfield as a receiver, he picked up an additional 188 yards on 16 receptions, notching two touchdowns. In his freshman season at John Marshall High School, McDaniel’s rushed for over 1500 yards and 24 scores.
When asked what his biggest goal was this off-season and what he would be working on the most, Eric replied, “My biggest goal is to get faster and stronger. I will be working on my burst and break away speed the most.”
Henrico finished its 2018 season 10-2, falling to eventual Division 5 champions Highland Springs in the Region 5B Championship.
