The three-star took his final visit this past weekend to Mississippi and the visit left a big impression on him.

"I enjoyed my visit to Ole Miss a lot," said Green.  "It's just a different environment of football and the atmosphere.  It's something different and I liked it a lot."

Green was hosted by Deontay Anderson on his visit and spent a lot of time with head coach Hugh Freeze.

"Coach Freeze, I like him a lot. He's a great person," said Green.  "He has a lot of great qualities and each of his players, he really cares about them and they care about him."

His head coach at Madison, Don Johnson, talked about how the Rebels got involved.

"Cal was recruiting him and (new Ole Miss receivers coach) Jacob Peeler remembered him from their board so when he got to Ole Miss, he started recruiting him," said Johnson.

Johnson said the faith of Freeze was something that impacted Green.

"Ole Miss and Coach Freeze have a real faith-based feeling and that's big for Daniel and his family, because they have a really strong faith," said Johnson.

The week before, Green visited Kansas State and the Wildcats also left an impression on him.

"He had a great time at Kansas State too," said Johnson.  "Their staff has done a great job with him.  He and Coach (Mike) Cox have a great relationship.  Kansas State's coaches have that strong faith too which is important."

Green had also visited Utah and the Utes are still in the mix.

"He and Coach (Justin) Ena have a great relationship so Utah is definitely in consideration," said Johnson.

Johnson said Green would make his decision on Wednesday.

"He wants to do it the old school way, no video, but pulling out the hat," said Johnson.
