Texas DT Chris Daniels’ departure is only surprising because he seemed to turn the corner this off-season when he lost needless weight. But going back to his high school days, there were always questions about motivation. In recent weeks it was obvious he was high school Chris.
Is he a big loss? I have no idea. Was he ever going to stay motivated? Probably not, and if not, he’s taking up a scholarship. It’s better he leaves in time to use the scholarship in the current cycle.
