CUTigersTV: DeAndre McDaniel
Below is a transcript of the interview that can be seen above:
DeAndre, how much did it help you being here for the spring, especially with fall practice starting today?
McDaniel: "It got me ahead of a lot of the other CAT safeties. It got me a little jump start. I came out co-starter so I just work hard and got that spot."
How did your summer workouts go?
McDaniel: "Yeah I went home. I went home because I had a little child. Then when I went home I had a personal trainer and just worked with my trainer every day. I came back up here a little stronger and a little bigger. I am at 205 now so coach Batson was happy about that so everything went good."
What do you think your chances are to see the field early this year?
McDaniel: "Well I want to start but then again I got Mike Hamlin in front of me. I don't want to take anything away from him. He is a good player. He is like a big brother to me. I am like the elementary kid just coming home with some stuff I just learned and he is just teaching me something else that the teacher didn't teach me. He is like a big brother to me."
What do you think it will it feel like to play that first game against Florida State in Death Valley?
McDaniel: "I am going to love it. That is my hometown favorite. I like Florida State, if they aren't playing against us that is who I am rooting for so of course I am going to want to play and play a lot. I am going to make plays."
Are you looking for some bragging rights that night?
McDaniel: "Oh yeah, I am going to talk. I am going to talk all day when I get there. When I am there they talk to me when I am home and I'm going to talk to them when I get home."
