Daniels Is A Boilermaker

Daniels becomes commit No. 19 for Purdue in the class-of-2013.

Chicago (Ill.) Foreman defensive tackle Johnny Daniels tells 247Sports he committed to Purdue on this weekend's official visit.

The Boilermakers headed into the weekend as the favorite for the 6-foot-5, 250-pound Daniels after extending a scholarship this past week. He also had an offer from Northern Illinois.

Daniels gave his word to Purdue head coach Darrell Hazell on Sunday morning.

"While I was talking to Coach Hazell, he asked me what was I looking for in a college," Daniels said. "I told him I was looking for a college that can develop me as a great student, a great football player and a better man. I felt like this was the perfect place to do so."

Daniels becomes the 19th commit for Purdue, and the third to pop for the Boilers during this weekend's group of official visitors, joining receiver Deangelo Yancey and offensive tackle Jason Tretter.

"Right now it's the best feeling and I feel like this is the best place for me," Daniels said. "It's definitely the place to be."

Daniels had 88 tackles, two sacks and one forced fumble as a senior. He also had 15 quarterback hurries.
