FightOnState.com last spoke to Dailey around Independence Day, where Dailey stated that Penn State was on top of his list of favorites. Dailey reiterated that the Nittany Lions' position hasn't changed and they still sit atop his list.
Additionally, around that time, Dailey was awaiting an offer from Notre Dame. Have the Irish extended a written offer?
"No, I'm supposed to be hearing back from Notre Dame in the next week and a half," Dailey said.
Dailey will be calling Joe Paterno this Monday to confirm his unofficial visit on Tuesday. He plans to stay until Wednesday and will likely room with a current Penn State player.
"[Penn State] definitely was my first big offer," Dailey said. "I sent them the film and I guess I'm happy that they see my athletic ability and that I'm capable of playing for them. There, it seemed to me if I were to go in as a linebacker and I wasn't fitting in, they'd just try to get me on the field wherever. I feel like at Penn State, they would just try to get me on the field. That caught my eye."
As Dailey indicated, he is not opposed to switching positions. Specifically, Dailey said the Penn State staff is recruiting him first as a linebacker and secondarily as a safety. Most, if not all schools recruiting Dailey are recruiting him as a linebacker. However, safety is not a foreign position for the four-star prospect.
"I actually played safety my sophomore and my junior year, but sometimes I played the nickel back depending on the package," Dailey said. "So I'm used to safety, but everyone is recruiting me as a linebacker because they think I'll put some weight on."
