Freshman of the Year: Jayden Daniels, Arizona State
Herm Edwards has wasted no time during fall camp as he declared who his starting quarterback is going to be this season. Edwards told reporters that true freshman Jayden Daniels is going to be his guy.
Daniels was one of the most sought-after dual-threat quarterback recruits. The highly-touted recruit has impressed enough since stepping foot on campus that he has commanded the huddle and now the starting job.
There’s plenty of excitement in the air in the valley of the sun as to just what Daniels can bring to the table. If he’s as dynamic as he’s been advertised early, then there’s something to be excited about for the next few years in Tempe.
When a quarterback comes in with a lot of talent, all eyes are always going to be on said player. Daniels is going to have all eyes on him this season and if he indeed produces, then it’s a no-brainer that he will end up the Freshman of the Year.
Arizona State went 7-5 in their first campaign under Edwards and was a decent surprise last season. Daniels being the dynamic, explosive playmaker will make Herm-a-mania run wild in Tempe, brother.
