Defensive back Darryl McDaniel signs with Villanova Football

McDaniel has the makings of a multi-year starter in the defensive backfield.

St. John’s (D.C.) safety Darryl McDaniel has signed his Letter of Intent to play football at Villanova, the school announced this morning.

A 6’0" 185 lb. prospect, McDaniel was an All-WCAC player during his senior season. He’s got great size for the safety position, plays coverage well, and can lay a big hit. He was an All-Conference selection in 2016.

With the graduation of Shayne Jones, Villanova has an open starting spot in the defensive backfield. Because the cornerback depth chart is loaded we could see Trey Johnson deputize here as he did last season, but there does appear to be PT available.
