McDaniel, though, is open to either side.
"I don't really have a preference, I just want to get on the field," said McDaniel.
McDaniel has worked at both positions at various camps this spring, but has earned more accolades on defense.
"I was the Linebacker MVP at the NUC Camp," said McDaniel.
When it comes to a school, McDaniel said he has no preference there either, at least right now.
"I'm going to go through the whole recruiting process and I don't plan on making a commitment until the end of the season," said McDaniel.
"Arizona State, UCLA and Idaho are recruiting me the hardest right now," said McDaniel.
Academically, McDaniel has a 2.8 and scored a 1250 on the SAT.
