Daniels (6-4, 290), who was born in Little Rock and still has family there, got a visit from Razorback running backs coach Jemal Singleton on Monday.
“He couldn’t talk to me, but I have talked to the Arkansas coaches on twitter and they have let me know that they are still very interested in me,” Daniels said. “They are just taking it slow because they don’t have a lot of scholarships this year.”
Indeed Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema has said he expects to sign just 18-22 in the 2016 class.
The Razorbacks have already landed a pair of pledges from defensive tackles from Star City’s Austin Capps (6-5, 304) in Metairie, La., Archbishop Rummel star Briston Guidry (6-3, 275).
“I am just waiting for an invite to get up there and check it out this summer,” Daniels said. “I am looking forward to it. I was supposed to go earlier (in March) but they wanted me to wait and come later.”
Daniels, who moved to Michigan at age 5, has some 20 offers already.
That includes ones from TCU, Oklahoma, Baylor, Michigan, Ole Miss, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech.
“It would be nice to get one from Arkansas,” Daniels said. “I’m glad they came down here and maybe that invite (to visit) and the offer will come soon.”
Daniels – who has a 350-pound bench press and 500-pound squat - has been back to Arkansas every summer to see family.
His grandfather has been a teacher for 30 years at Fuller Middle School, his dad played quarterback for Little Rock Mills back in the day and his aunt graduated from Arkansas recently.
“They are all big Razorback fans,” Daniels said. “They would love to see me there.”
