Recruiting: Koenig Enjoys Orange-White Game

One of the prospects that really stood out in the crowd according to several witnesses on Saturday night at the Orange-White spring game was a familiar face with a familiar name. Daniel Koenig, the third and youngest brother from the family in Cape Coral, Fla. that has produced two Oklahoma State offensive linemen and graduates in Doug and David, was joined at the contest by his father, Bob.

Daniel was positive about the trip when we spoke to him after he and his dad landed back in the Sunshine State where Daniel is ranked by Scout as the No. 51 prospect in that talent-rich football state.

"The trip went good," said Daniel Koenig. "I liked all of the coaches that I met. The facilities are extremely nice. The campus is nice and I like it a lot. The dorm where the student-athletes live is nice, and I liked those bigger beds in the dorm rooms. The game was well played, and I really like the run schemes."

The witnesses that we spoke to that saw Daniel on Saturday said he seemed even taller than the last time they had seen him. "He towers over his father and his dad is really tall," said one person familiar with the Koenig family.

Daniel is 6-6 and may be approaching 6-7 and weighs close to 260 pounds. He is a definite offensive tackle at the college level. There are plenty of schools that agree as he is up to 14 Division I scholarship offers. That is more than either Doug or David had coming out of high school.

Daniel says he is not bragging about any of it but he is staying busy besides the trip to Stillwater. "I went to Tennessee to check it out and that was impressive," said Koenig. "I went to Wake Forest and I was at Miami for their spring game. I've also been to North Carolina and I was at junior day at UCF (Central Florida) and also OSU."

Along with all those schools Alabama, Duke, and Southern Miss have offered. Florida State is staying in contact with Koenig.

"I don't have a timetable (for his decision)," answered Koenig when asked if he had set a date for a decision. "It will be when I feel comfortable with a school and I'm ready to announce it."
