Cage Hearing From Several

6-foot-3, 285 pound junior Daniel Cage is hearing from schools across the Midwest. FOX Sports NEXT caught up with the lineman to get the latest on his recruitment.

Throughout his junior season, defensive lineman Daniel Cage has picked up four offers from Cincinnati, Illinois, Tennessee and Minnesota. Right now, Cage says that two schools are standing out.

"Tennessee and Minnesota are at the top. Tennessee is a great program with big facilities and has what I want. And it's the same with Minnesota."

Cage is also hearing from several new schools. "Georgia, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Boston College have been talking to me recently."

The junior will be participating in the Army All-American combine in January, but once that‘s over, he's hoping to start taking visits.

"I definitely want to visit Ohio State, Minnesota, Tennessee and Notre Dame."

While he still has awhile to go in his recruitment, Cage does know what the most important factors when it comes down to his decision will be.

"The location will matter to me. I don't want to go too far from him. Then I'll also look at what they have to offer educationally, the football program and how well the school is represented."

Stay with FOX Sports NEXT for the latest on Cage and the rest of the Class of 2014.
