Michael Floyd had three underage drinking offenses during his college football career at Notre Dame. He’s gone to the Arizona Cardinals of the NFL now, but a player expected to take his place on the field, his following his example off it.
DaVaris Daniels, a sophomore-to-be receiver, was cited for consumption of alcohol by a minor on May 13, according to police records in his hometown of Vernon Hills.
Daniels didn’t play last year, his rookie season but is truly expected to be a major contributor as a sophomore this fall.
Daniels is the third Fighting Irish player to encounter alcohol-related legal trouble this month after once starting quarterback Tommy Rees (facing multiple misdemeanor charges including batter) and linebacker Carlo Calabrese (charged with intimidation and threatening a police officer) were arrested at an off-campus party May 3.
If Rees and Daniels hook up on TD pass plays this fall, expect the underage drinking jokes to fly!
