Danley Is Already A Hot Prospect

Early on in the 2015 recruiting cycle, it appears that East Mississippi OL Jamal Danley (6-5, 310) will be one of the more highly sought-after JUCO offensive linemen in the country. He already has eight offers and he recently updated JCFootball.com on where things stand...

"Things have been going good. I have eight offers -- Mississippi State, Missouri, South Florida, Memphis, Middle Tennessee State, Temple, Cincinnati and Massachusetts -- and LSU and Ole Miss are looking at me too," Danley told JCFootball.com recently. "Ole Miss wants to get film on me at tackle since I played guard last year, so once they get film on me, they should offer and LSU seems really interested, but I'm not too sure what they are thinking right now as far as an offer."

As a freshman last year, Danley played right guard and he said his game definitely leans toward the aggressive side.

"My run-blocking is what I do best. I'm aggressive and I like to get after guys," Danley noted. "My pass-blocking is improving and I'll be playing both right and left tackle this year, so my technique needs to improve. I've got good feet for a guy my size, but my technique definitely can improve and that's what I've been working on this spring."

Danley enjoyed a solid prep career at Byhalia (Ms.) High School and he signed with Louisiana-Monroe, but after a year there, he decided to leave.

"It just didn't work out there," Danley said. "I left after my freshman year and came here to East Mississippi because they have a great staff and program here."

As far as making his decision, Danley doesn't plan to take any visits until after the start of his sophomore season and he said he's been thinking about the criteria he will focus on to help him make his decision.

"One thing will be the academics and the support there," Danley said. "I want to see the road to see how fast I can graduate and I will also be looking for playing time since I only have two years left."

Danley is on pace to finish up his two-year degree this summer and he plans to play for EMCC this fall and will have two years to play two following the 2014 football season.
