4-star safety will visit Louisville

DeAndra McDaniel, who is rated as the nation's No.18 safety prospect and verbally committed to Clemson in late August, recently told Inside The Ville that he is in the process of scheduling an official visit with Louisville

DeAndra McDaniel, rated the No.18 safety prospect in the country by Scout.com, gave his verbal commitment to Clemson August and while he remains committed, the 4-star athlete is considering a couple official visits.

"I'm still committed, but I'm still looking around a little bit," he said. "I'm trying to set a visit up with Louisville and I might set one up for Alabama too."

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound McDaniel, who excels at both safety and wide receiver, says that two former teammates at Tallahassee Godby High School are playing a role in his possible trips to visit the Cardinals and Crimson Tide.

"I know Roy Upchurch at Alabama and E.K. Sawyerr at Louisville and both of them are telling me great things about each place," McDaniel said. "I guess I should visit a couple more places before I go completely firm."

According to the Scout.com 4-star prospect, a date with Louisville should be set up soon.

"Coach Whitt at Louisville is supposed to call me back about me coming up in December or January," he explained. "He said he wanted to talk to Coach Petrino about it first and then he'd call me back."

McDaniel missed the final game of his senior season due a shoulder injury and is expected to receive the results of his MRI on Friday evening.
