Freshman safety David Daniel for Georgia took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon, hinting at his return from an injury sustained in August in the midst of fall camp.
OnlineAthens’ Marc Weiszer reported on August 26 that the first-year defensive back was struck by a vehicle on campus that Tuesday after exiting a campus transit bus. Fortunately, the injuries sustained by Daniels did not force him to be hospitalized, as Weiszer said he suffered “cuts to his left wrist and thigh and police noticed an open wound on his thigh,” said Weiszer in the police file.
The freshman defensive back was registered in the winter, meaning he was able to compete in the spring and get a head start on his fellow freshmen to learn his safety role in Georgia.
Daniel was the first member of the 2021 Recruiting Class from Georgia and has held firm with the Dawgs from day one he pledged to become a Dawg.
Since the sources arrived, sources have told the SI Dawgs Daily that Daniels is training in both security and STAR and is working on studying a fairly comprehensive playbook for both positions. The rookie’s return will add more depth to Georgia’s dwindling defensive back room after Tykee Smith’s injury.
