On Friday morning, the Texas Longhorns extended the second offer of the week to a defensive tackle, with Dallas Bishop Dunne prospect Damion Daniels picking up the latest:

The 6'1, 300-pounder is a consensus three-star prospect rated as the No. 857 player nationally, the No. 56 defensive tackle, and the No. 121 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. Texas is the 10th school to offer Daniels, joining Colorado State, Iowa, LSU, Oklahoma State, Rice, SMU, Texas State, Tulane, and USC.
He's the younger brother of Oklahoma State sophomore defensive tackle Darrion Daniels, who picked up a Texas offer in the 2015 cycle and was a consensus four-star prospect before contributing as a freshman. With the elder Daniels playing in Stillwater, the early expectation is that Damion will join him as well, as both of his 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions currently favor the Pokes.
However, both of those predictions were made back in October when he picked up his Oklahoma State offer, and before he picked up his three major offers from LSU, USC, and Texas. And though his older brother never showed a great deal of interest in the Longhorns, Damion did take an unofficial visit to Austin in late September of 2015.
At the defensive tackle position, Texas is also in pursuit of Houston Episcopal's Marvin Wilson, the consensus No. 4 prospect nationally, Iowa commit Juan Harris, and Plano East's Deiontae Watts.
