Daniels and James are two of four Huskies who have recently committed to play in various postseason all-star games. Earlier this week, the Dell East-West Shrine All-Star Game announced that UW defensive back Dashon Goldson and punter Sean Douglas accepted invitations to participate in its contest later this month in Houston.
Daniels, a native of San Diego, Calif., played in 35 games in four seasons at Washington and earned 26 starts. He played all 775 offensive plays as a senior at the left guard position and was a member of a unit that allowed just 19 sacks in UW's 12 games, which rated fourth in the Pac-10 Conference.
A native of Dos Palos, Calif., James averaged 4.1 yards per carry in his 39 appearances at tailback for the UW. He rushed for a total of 1,731 yards and 11 touchdowns in four seasons and registered 37 pass receptions for 263 yards.
Among his three rushing touchdowns during the 2006 season was a memorable 54-yard scoring run up the middle of the field on the first play from scrimmage in UW's second game of the season at the University of Oklahoma. He missed two games after suffering an ankle sprain in UW's overtime loss at Cal. James returned to action at less than full strength for the final two games of the season.
