Daniels Sees Iowa

LeShun Daniels said he's still committed to Boston College but an official visit to Iowa this weekend is making him think about his decision. He shares his impressions of Iowa City, what new BC Coach Steve Addazio has told him and what's next in the process in this update.

LeShun Daniels thought he had his mind made up. The 2013 %%MATCH_10%% running back verbally committed to Boston College in June. Then, the Eagles fired head coach Frank Spaziani.

Daniels picked up an Iowa offer last week. The 6-foot-, 215-pound bulldozer officially visited the Hawkeyes this weekend.

"It's going to be pretty tough," Daniels said of his final decision. "I'm just going to have to look it over, evaluate it and figure out what's best for me."

Daniels said he instill is pledged to the Eagles.

"I mean, I'm still committed to BC," he said. "I'm having (New Head) Coach Steve Addazio come down to see me this week and we're going to talk more about it. We'll just see who that goes."

Addazio and Daniels have spoken a couple of times on the phone.

"The conversations weren't too long," Addazio said. "He was just saying that he wants me to stay with BC and how he likes to run the football."

Boston College hired Addazio away from Temple earlier this month. He had assisted at Florida, Notre Dame and Indiana.

Daniels said he would like to finalize his decision before January but won't rush it.

"I want to wait to see until I'm for sure about where I want to be," he said.

Iowa impressed him.

"It was fun," Daniels said. "I liked the coaches. I liked that they were making some (facilities) renovations. I like the area. It was small, but it was nice. There were things to do."

Anthony Hitchens and Christian Kirksey played host to Daniels. The former came to Iowa from in Lorain, Ohio.

"He lives like an hour away from me," Daniels said. "We had things in common."

Daniels said the Iowa coaches like his "down-hill" running style and that he fits well into its offense. He likes the Hawkeye head man.

"I like Coach (Kirk) Ferentz a lot," Daniels said. "He's a real god guy. You know, he has had a real good program going."
