New SEC Option for Danley

East Mississippi Community College offensive lineman Jamal Danley is a name of interest for several programs heading into the spring evaluation period. The Byhalia, Mississippi native is beginning to see his stock rise in the eyes of college recruiters throughout the southeast. Earlier this week, Danley added a new offer from the SEC.

"Coach (Buddy) Stephens told me yesterday that Missouri offered me," said Danley. "They had come down during the season to see about Avery (Gennesy)

"They saw me then and now they said that they wanted to offer me."

Danley reports that he has not had much interaction with the Tigers so far, but he is eager to learn more about his opportunity in Columbia.

Danley's first offer from the SEC came from Mississippi State and the Bulldogs remain in hot pursuit.

The three star standout spent some time in Starkville last weekend as the team went through on open spring scrimmage game.

"I went over there and watched them practice," said Danley of the Bulldogs. "It was a good time and I got to watch the O line.

"I watched the 2s and 3s the most, because that is who I would be competing with for a starting spot.

"They were telling me that Damien Robinson is going to be moving on after this season, so that spot at right tackle is going to be open.

"I was glad to hear that."

Coach Dan Mullen and his staff are not the only Magnolia State program in contact with the talented big man.

"Ole Miss has been in touch with me lately," said Danley. "They haven't offered yet, but they said that they want to see me at tackle before they do anything."

On track to graduate in December, Danley has contemplating a pre-season decision that may come as early as next month.

"I am still planning to decide pretty early, but I am not exactly sure when," said Danley. "I may still do it before the summer, but I might wait a little while.

"I know I want to get it down before the season."

Danley currently holds offers from Cincinnati, Massachusetts, Memphis, Mississippi State, Missouri, South Florida and Temple.
