Class of 2023 athlete Daniel Demery can do it all

I recently had a chance to evaluate Class of 2023 athlete Daniel Demery at the NextGen All America Dallas camp in late June. Demery, a 6-foot-1, 181-pound athlete out of Texas, had already earned an invite to The SHOW before coming to the camp. That didn't stop him from coming out to compete against other prospects looking for an opportunity to earn their invite to the SHOW.

Demery, who will be going into his sophomore year this fall, already has an impressive list of schools that have offered him a scholarship. He has offers from Baylor, Colorado, Georgia Tech, Illinois State, Kansas, Nebraska, North Texas, SMU, Texas, Vanderbilt, and Wisconsin.  

During the NextGen camp, Demery competed mostly as a defensive back. I had a chance to go back to watch his 2019 season freshman year highlights a few days after the camp. There were some things that I was able to see on film that I couldn't see at the camp.

Demery showed off his coverage skills at NextGen Dallas. His highlights show him as a physical presence against the run game. He's a hard hitter and a sure tackler. Demery is definitely not afraid of contact. He also shows off his skills on the offensive side of the football as a wide receiver and a punt returner. Judging from his highlights, he's a playmaker on offense that's only going to get better.

Ultimately, Demery will be a safety at this next level. In the meantime, I expect him to become even more of a terror to opponents on both sides of the ball during the remaining years of his high school career.
