Tech will graduate a number of defensive linemen after 2015, and it only signed two defensive tackles on signing day this year. And Chris Daniels is the type of player Tech desperately needs.

The 6’4”, 280 lb. defensive tackle from Euless Trinity is the No. 9 overall prospect in the state of Texas and the 70th ranked player in the nation. He is exactly the kind of player Tech needs to bolster its defensive line. However, Tech will have to beat out programs like Oklahoma, Oregon, USC, Texas A&M, Texas, TCU, and Baylor to land Daniels’ services.
