Hugh Freeze and the Arkansas State Red Wolves were the first school to extend an offer to Texas standout running back Kendrick Daniels, appears that they won't be the last.

AStateNation caught up with Daniels on Sunday and it appears that the ASU coaching staff will have their work cut out for them fending off other suitors for the current Red Wolf commitment.

"New Mexico just recently offered," Daniels said. "I will probably take a visit there, but still committed to Arkansas State."

According to Daniels his trip to Jonesboro last month was better than he expected it to be and one was of the factors why he decided to pull the trigger in favor of the Red Wolves.

"It was wonderful there," Daniels said. "There wasn't nothing I didn't like about the campus. The town reminds me a lot of Sulphur Springs my home town, about the same size and I really felt at home."

Another key factor in Daniel's pledge to ASU was the new Red Wolf Coaching Staff.

"I really like the coaches a lot,' Daniels said. "They are very real, very straight forward and very easy to talk to."

In fact the ASU coaching staff also reminds Daniels of his current coaching staff.

"There are a lot of similararites between their coaching staff and mine at home," Daniels said. "I love the way Coach (Hugh) Freeze is full of energy and excitement about being the head coach at Arkansas State."

Daniels feels he owes it to himself to check out all of his options with a visit before making the final nod on signing day.

"I have been keeping in touch with Arkansas State's coaching staff a lot," Daniels said. "They want to make sure I don't go anywhere else. They have made it very clear how important I am to their recruiting class. I don't plan on changing my mind, I'm committed to the Red Wolves."

Daniels rushed for 1,546 yards on 164 carries with 18 touchdowns. He also caught 20 passes for 210 yards and three TDs for Sulphur Springs, which posted a 9-3 mark in 2010.

Daniels currently have offers from Arkansas State, New Mexico, New Mexico State, Memphis, Iowa State and Louisiana Tech.
