St. Xavier (OH)'s Steven Daniels Is Latest Bomber-Turned-Eagle

The Eagles have landed yet another high school recruit from St. Xavier HS in Cincinnati in senior LB Steven Daniels. The 6'1" 235 pound linebacker committed on Tuesday, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. Daniels also considered Texas A&M, Kentucky, Louisville and West Virginia.

Daniels is just the latest in a line of Bombers-turned-Eagles. Joining Daniels in BC's Class of 2011 is fellow St. X teammate LB Sean Duggan, who committed to BC back in October.

The Jesuit school has been a solid pipeline for BC, producing such players as LB Luke Kuechly (2009), DE Alex Albright (2006), DE Nick Larkin (2003) and C Pat Ross (2001).

Even though Daniels played at St. X at the same time as Kuechly, that's where the comparisons end, according to St. Xavier coach Steve Specht.

"Totally different players," said Specht. "Luke is more of a sideline-to-sideline guy and that's why you see him averaging 17 tackles a game or whatever crazy number it is. Steven is more of a downhill, hit-you-in-the-face type of player. He should be a really good run stuffer and I think he'll be a strong (middle linebacker)."

Welcome to the Heights, Steven.
