Daniel, how is your recruiting going thus far?

"It's going real well. I am hearing from a lot of schools. I am having a blast enjoying the recruiting and playing my last year of high school ball."

Have you narrowed your list of schools down to your tops schools?

"Yes sir I have. I've narrowed my list down to two schools: Georgia Tech and Ole Miss. Georgia Tech wants me as a offensive lineman and Ole Miss is recruiting me as a tight end."

Do you have a preference on which position you play?

"No sir. The position I play isn't a major point in choosing which school I go to. I just like getting out on the field contributing to my team anyway I can."

What are some positives about Georgia Tech that makes them appealing?

"The education is first class to start off with. The coaches there are great. They run the same offense we do in high school and that's a plus too. I like the fact that Tech is a strong football team too. The coaches relationship with the players are great too.

What are some positives about Ole Miss?

Ole Miss is on the rise as a program. They also have great coach and player relationships. I've also had a chance to get know some of their players too."

Do you have an idea on when you will choose between Georgia Tech and Ole Miss?

"Yes sir, I plan on making a decision right after I make my official visit to Georgia Tech. I want to get in my official visit before I make a decision.


Dale's Take:
Daniel was, as always, a pleasure to talk to about his recruitment. Daniel is pretty set on Georgia Tech and Ole Miss as the two schools on his final list. Daniel wants to make sure his decision is the right one, thus waiting until his official visit to Georgia Tech, his last one, before making an final decision between Tech and the Rebels.
