I've been getting a lot of stuff from them since I was a freshman.  I like their coaches a lot.  I've been to their camps every summer since I got into High School.  Their facilities are real nice and I like the town and everything.  It's real nice there."

Alabama - "My Dad is from Alabama and he's a huge Alabama fan.  They have some of the best facilities I have seen.  Coach Burton Burns is their running backs coach and I like him a lot.  I talked to him at their junior day and he seemed to be a nice guy.  I like their coaches a lot."

Daniel said several factors will play into his decision.

"I'll take a look at the facility and my position coach that will be coaching me there. I'll have to tour the town and see what it's like and everything. The campus and atmosphere will also be very important to me."
