Countdown to UGA-OSU: 34 Days (Kalvin Daniels)

Kalvin Daniels, RB
5-10, 200, Eastman GA (Dodge County HS), Jr.

Note: Daniels will wear #33 for the 2009 season.

Daniels walked on at UGA in 2007 after a solid career at Dodge County, where he was one of the better athletes in school history (lettered in football, basketball, baseball and track.) He saw a good bit of time as a true freshman, including an impressive performance against Ole Miss, where he carried the ball 8 times for 44 yards in mop-up duty. He expected to see even more action in 2008, but the logjam backing up Knowshon Moreno at running back led him to see the field in only 1 game.

Depth Chart Analysis: Once again, Daniels finds himself with alot of scholarship players in between him and playing time this year. He's certainly got more talent and game experience than most walk-ons would have in any program, and there is no doubt that he gives this team alot of value in working with the scout team. It is possible he'll see carries this season, but not likely in a meaningful situation.

Famous #34s in UGA history: You really don't know? Also, CB Buzy Rosenberg wore the number back in the early 70s.
