Notre Dame wide receiver cited for underage drinking


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!
