The talent in the state of Nebraska is pretty deep for the 2014 class. Ty Danielson is a 6-foot-3 and 180-pound wide receiver from York (Nebr.) that has been getting ready for his senior seasons on the gridiron and the hard-court.
"I am just playing some football and some basketball this summer," Danielson said. "I am lifting a lot too. I have been working on my routes, working on my footwork and just the little things. We have 7-on-7 every Monday."
Danielson has nice film showing good body control, good hands and obviously is a bigger target at wide receiver. He doesn't really consider himself a true "X" seeing himself more as a possession receiver who could be nice red zone target potentially.
"I think that I have a big body, easy target to hit, definitely the biggest on our team. I think that I have good hands. I am a bit of a possession receiver that can also go up and get the football."
Danielson made his way to Lincoln this summer for football camp. He's been to a couple of other camps as well and then is also doing camps for basketball which is keeping him pretty busy.
"I have been to the Nebraska camp and I also went to Hastings and South Dakota. I have also been doing a number of basketball camps this summer."
The day that Danielson was in Lincoln for camp he happened to be there working against both Avery Anderson and Trai Mosley. Nebraska fans are familiar with both because they received Nebraska offers later that day.
"I was there for the second session and I think that it was the second day. We had to leave a little early so I didn't get to talk with the coaches later that day after camp to see how I did.
"The day that I was there Nebraska offered two of the cornerbacks that I was working against. I went by them a couple of times, which was good, and they are very good. Very different than what I see at York. They were all press and I only see corners that are 10 yards back."
The interest from Nebraska has gone a little quiet since Danielson was at camp. However, he has been staying in contact with some area schools for both football and basketball.
"I haven't had anything from Nebraska since the camps, but I was getting some information going into the camps. I have been talking to Drake and my coach has been talking to South Dakota and South Dakota State. I have been talking to a couple of schools about basketball too."
Playing both sports in college is definitely an ideal scenario for Danielson. He says that he knows it will be difficult to get and to do. "It would be fun to play both sports at the next level. I would take it if I could get it. But that is pretty difficult to do."
