Daub thinking about 'Bama

LSU commit Kain Daub is one of the top linebackers in the 2014 class and it looks like a few schools may not be as out of the race for Daub's skills as he once said. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound athlete recently transferred from Nease to Sandalwood (Jacksonville, FL) and is now teammates with Alabama defensive end commit DeMarcus Walker, who has give Daub some things to think about.

"Ever since I came to Sandalwood (Demarcus Walker) won't leave me alone about it. All we fight about every day is LSU and Alabama," Kain Daub said.

Daub gave his verbal pledge to LSU after visiting Baton Rouge in July. He wasn't planning on even visiting anywhere else, but now things are starting to change.

"At first, my recruiting was totally shut down, but I think lately I've been thinking about reopening and considering some other schools," he said.

"(I'm considering) Alabama and that's all I know of right now. It's just LSU and Alabama going at it right now."

Daub says he talks to coaches at Alabama more often than before and he plans to visit Tuscaloosa with Walker on November 10th, when the Tide welcome Texas A&M.

"They just tell me that I need to come up there, go to camp, take a visit with DeMarcus," Daub said.

"What is there not to say about (the Tide)? They're always sound, they're always so good. There's really nothing bad you can say about them."

Daub has an impressive offer list including Alabama, LSU, Florida, Florida State, Ohio State, South Carolina, and Auburn. He also plans to visit LSU with Walker when the Tigers welcome Alabama on November 3rd.

Now, Daub continues to adjust to his new high school team and has loved fitting in to the impressive Sandalwood defense.

"I had to learn a lot when I first got here, but now I know a lot of stuff and I really don't have to think as much as I did (at first)," he said.

"You really can never be perfect in everything, so I just plan to keep working on everything that I know it takes to get to college and be a better player all around."
