Q: What did you see on your visit that made you comfortable enough to pull the trigger?
Mike Daniels: The friendliness of the people. Also the fact that there were a lot of kids from my area of Jersey.
Daniels: I had already met Shonn Greene. Marcus Wilson and Albert Young were guys I didn't know, but I knew of them because of their names, they're big in my area in high school. When I got down there, we hit if off real quick. They accepted me as one of them already, another guy from South Jersey that's part of the family.
Q: A lot of people have great things to say about Coach Darrell Wilson, what were your impressions?
Daniels: Nobody had told me anything, but that man is a great man. He did a lot to bring me to Coach Ferentz's attention, and bring my tape to him. He's been out here a couple times and I really appreciate everything he's done for me. I really like Coach Wilson a lot.
Q: What is it about the way you play football that makes you stand out?
Daniels: My aggression and the way I use my hands and my speed, my strength. That's about it.
Q: Had you followed Iowa at all before your visit? How did you become interested?
Daniels: I'd watched Albert and Marcus a lot this season, because they're from the area. That was a plus, watching them a lot this year.
Q: When you came on your visit, was there anything you were surprised with, anything that caught your attention?
Daniels: I didn't know that Iowa Football was the big show in town. That was one thing that blew my mind. I did not expect that much love for the college players out there.
Q: Is there anything like that in New Jersey? Rutgers had a good year, but is there anything that can compare out there?
Daniels: College-wise, no. These guys are competing with the Eagles, the Giants, the Steelers. I just haven't seen that kind of love and devotion.
