Like Locker, Daniels is a dual threat under center with both a big arm and the ability to change a game with his legs. His numbers have been pedestrian thus far – through the Bulls’ first four games, the redshirt sophomore has accounted for 4 passing and 2 rushing touchdowns – a result of being less of an offensive focal point because of South Florida’s weak early season schedule.
