The Huskies nab an enormous (figurative and literal) commit for the 2015 class

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Jacob Daniel is a mountain of a man at defensive tackle, standing either 6-4 or 6-5 depending on which recruiting service you visit, and weighing in at around 300 pounds.

Hailing from Fresno California, the high school junior already held offers from schools like Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee and UCLA. That offer sheet speaks for itself.

Scout.com has Daniel ranked as a 4 star player, and their #6 defensive tackle in the nation. 247 has him as the #6 defensive tackle, #4 player in California, and #24 player in his class with a composite score of .988. Rivals has him as a 4 star player.

Here's Greg Biggins on Daniel:

At a rock solid 6-4, 300 pounds, Daniel is a pure tackle all the way and a very good one. He’s everything you want in a tackle prospect and has unlimited upside. Daniel has that great frame, naturally strong, a quick first step, uses his hands very well and can get up the field. He's a wide body who will require a double team and as long as he continues to work hard off the field and maintains his motor, Daniel should be a special player

All the clamoring for better recruiting on the interior of the defensive line appears to have an answer: with Elijah Qualls redshirting this year, Natrell Curtis in the boat for the 2014 class, and Daniel for 2015, that's a great run of 4 star DTs for the program (and Daniel could easily jump to 5 star status).

Daniel has apparently been onboard for a few days, but is only now making it public:

As they say though, now his recruitment has just begun.
