Danley shines at Nike Camp
By BARRY BURLESON
An offensive tackle from Byhalia High School is climbing the recruiting charts after his showing at the recent Houston Nike Camp.
Jamal Danley, who will be a senior next season, had a tremendous showing in Texas, according to Markeith Washington, head coach of the Indians.
“Jamal is a big-time player,” Washington said. “He is the cornerstone of our offense. Believe me, we’re going to run behind him next year. We’re building the offense around him. He’s the leader of our team.”
Danley, 6’4” and 265 pounds, is one of several camp participants mentioned on a popular website, 247sports.com. The site, which focuses on recruiting news, reported on the Houston Nike Camp’s top performers. It said the camp was low on numbers but high on talent and summarized the best of the event, including high-profile commitments and some previously unknown risers.
About the Byhalia Indian, 247sports.com reported:
“One of the biggest surprises of the event came from Mississippi in the form of Danley. With good size, Danley really emerged from obscurity as one of the top linemen in Houston. At around 6-4, Danley doesn’t have much bad weight. He looks like he really enjoys contact and is physical and strong when engaged. In his pass set, Danley is raw but he has some great feet and quickness to work with. He may not have the 6-6 frame but he looks like he has the athleticism to remain on the edge as a tackle or move inside to guard. Look for Danley’s recruitment to take off as more schools get a first hand look at him.”
