After securing early offers from Air Force and Central Florida, Daniel's recruitment exploded with teams such as East Carolina extending tenders.

"Coach Junior Smith, the running backs coach from East Carolina called and said he liked my film a lot," said Daniel. "He said he already had a commit from one running back, but they were going to offer me as an athlete. They could maybe let me play a little defense as well."

What will Daniel be looking for in a college?

"The three things he's probably going to look at the most are how he fits in, whether it's going to be a competitive team, and whether or not he'll be able to play early," said his father, Kenny Daniel. "I think wherever he goes the coaches are going to need to find a way to get him on the field or just go ahead and tell him they're redshirting him," he laughed. "I don't think he'll do too well standing on the sidelines not knowing. He just loves to play the game."

Daniel now holds scholarship offers from Arkansas, East Carolina, Central Florida, San Diego State, Air Force, and Tulane among others.
