Recently, ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with Missouri offer and 2015 DT prospect Darrion Daniels 6’4” 296 Dallas (TX) Dunne, who updated us on his interest in Missouri, and the current status of his recruitment.
Daniels holds an offer list that includes Arizona State, Arkansas, Baylor, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Iowa, Louisville, LSU, Miami, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, SMU, TCU, Tennessee, Texas, Texas Tech, Tulsa, USC, Washington State, and Wisconsin, among others, in addition to Missouri.
A few weeks ago, Daniels narrowed his list of schools to include Arizona State, Baylor, Illinois, Iowa, LSU, Missouri, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, and Texas Tech.
It’s been his plan to narrow things down even more, to the five schools to which he will take official visits. That time is near. He has previously stated that Baylor, OU, and Texas Tech would be on his official visit list.
He’s planning to take an official visit to Missouri this month.
“That’s what my parents and I are doing right now,” explained Daniels. “We’re trying to find the best time for me to take my official visit to Missouri. We’re debating between October 11th, for the Georgia game, and October 25th, for the Vanderbilt game.”
“I’m trying to pick my final five, so that I can go ahead and take my five official visits,” said Daniels. “That way, I’ll have enough time to evaluate each one, and make my decision.”
Daniels said that Missouri will definitely be one of his official visits.
“The conference doesn’t matter to me,” explained Daniels. “Each of the schools, I like their defensive schemes. And, I like where they see me playing. I think Mizzou is going to be a pretty good fit for me…………………………………… The last few years, Mizzou’s D-line has been amazing!”
Daniels said that he expects to speak with Missouri assistant coach Craig Kuligowski “in a few days”.
Daniels, who has been timed at 4.76 seconds in the 40-yard dash, has posted a bench max of 375 pounds, and has a personal best in the squat of 600 pounds. He named Oklahoma State, in addition to Baylor, Oklahoma, and Texas Tech as the other four schools to which he will likely take his official visits.
He said that he’s also considering Texas A&M and Iowa as possible destinations. He intends to release his final five within the next few days.
He’s planning to take five in-season official visits, then make a decision later this year.
