So what does Coach Wells and the Iowa State staff like about McDaniel?
"Coach Wells is a real colorful guy who has been really straight forward with me," said McDaniel. "He just told me that he likes my elusiveness and that he feels that I fit perfectly in their offense. He likes my versatility and feels that I can make plays when I'm running, catching, or returning the ball."
The 5-foot-10, 190-pound running back currently holds offers from Stanford, Texas Tech, Iowa State, Navy, Minnesota, Iowa, Tulsa, and Colorado.
Cam has had a very busy schedule during the spring and early summer but he told Cyclone Sports Report that a visit to Ames in the future is very likely.
"I have already been on visits to Iowa, Stanford, and Texas Tech and I camped at Texas and TCU," he said. "With those visits and my 7 on 7 schedule I just haven't had much time. Coach Wells definitely wants to get me on campus as soon as possible. I'll most likely come to Iowa State in the fall to see a game.
So when might McDaniel be making his final decision?
"I'm praying about it," he said. "I feel will give me confirmation on where I need to go and then I'll make my decision. It will be wherever I fit in his plan and if I fulfill his purpose then nothing can go wrong."
