  10/12/20 - Jayden DanielsSo/2023, Arizona State, 6-2, 185 (DS#5 QB) + More +

  First-year wide receivers coach Prentice Gill said the spring practices were especially important for Daniels, the first ASU true freshman to start from the outset of his career. "In this system, you need elite quarterback play," Gill said. "That not just the play itself, that's organizing and moving the pieces around. The seven practices helped Jayden get used to that and when (No.) 5 is used to it even if our guys do get a little lost out there, Jayden can get things done. It was huge. If we didn't have it, it would be really hard to function right now." Daniels averaged 274.8 yards total offense over 12 games in 2019 when ASU finished 8-5. He threw for 2,943 yards with 17 touchdowns and only two interceptions.

Now listed at 185 pounds, the 6-3 Daniels said going home to California during early quarantine helped him to put on some weight. "Then come back here and get bigger and strengthen in different areas. I'm still not where I want to be, but to be put on some more muscle mass I'm able to take some more hits and get back up." Daniels seems pleased with the working relationship he is building with Hill. "He asks me what do I like, what do I want to run, and we just have different ways of getting to it. He's going back to the film to see what best fits me. It's very exciting knowing I'm able to go to somebody and talk to him about this is what I want to do or I like this but I don't like this." - Arizona Republic
