West Virginia Makes Push for Defensive Back Mike Daniels

Globe Institute (NY) cornerback Mike Daniels wrapped up his official visit to West Virginia without a commitment, but that doesn’t mean the Mountaineers aren’t a serious contender for his services.

Despite not earning a commitment while having him on campus, West Virginia Mountaineers placed itself in solid position for cornerback Mike Daniels.

“The visit went great,” Daniels told BlueGoldNews.com. “I had fun just hanging out with the players. It feels like family and I enjoyed bonding with the coaches, too.”

Daniels (6-0, 195 lbs.) has held West Virginia atop his recruiting list since their initial offer last November – which was his first. Having three years to play two at the next level, Daniels is seeking an opportunity to play early.

“West Virginia was the first team to offer me a scholarship,” Daniels recalled. “I’ve been all ears to everything they’ve been telling me. With the departure of Daryl Worley and Terrell Chestnut there is a great chance I can see the field immediately.”

Daniels will now shift his focus to his final official visit before signing day – a trip to Arizona next weekend.

“I didn’t commit to WVU this weekend because I want to see Arizona,” Daniels said. “I told myself before any visits that’s what I was going to do. This is an important decision and I have to be sure. I’ll likely make a decision just before signing day.”

The Mountaineer coaches will get in one more visit with Daniels before he makes that visit, though, as several West Virginia coaches will have a final in-home visit.

“Some of the coaches are coming to see me tomorrow. I can’t wait.”
