Daniels had five offers heading into last fall, but a shoulder injury forced him to miss the entire 2014 season and all of those schools moved on from him.

"I had offers from BYU, Mississippi Valley Sate, UAB, Utah and Utah State, but once I got injured, they all sorta disappeared," Daniels told JCFootball.com. "Now I have Indiana, Washington and Washington State all talking to me, but they all are waiting for me to finish up this math class that I am taking before they do anything, so that's what I am working on."

Because he was injured before his season, Daniels received a medical redshirt, so he will actually have four years to play three wherever he winds up should he find the right opportunity.

"I'm looking for a place where I feel like I can fit in and the chance to come in and compete for playing time right away," Daniels noted. "I'm about competing, so I am not looking for a place just to hand me the job, but I want the chance to compete.

"I also just want to see how I feel with the coaches and the players and how life will be for the next three or four years for me where I am as a student and as a player."

As a freshman in 2013, Daniels totaled 26 tackles, an interception and eight pass breakups while working as a nickel corner for the Falcons.

"I didn't start (in 2013), but I played in every game except one," Daniels told JCFootball.com last summer. "I felt I did pretty well. My man-to-man is what I do best, but I have really improved as a zone guy and I feel confident in everything I'm doing right now."

With his prototypical length, ball skills and competitive nature, Daniels is considered by many scouts to be one of the top cover-corners in the country.

When he finishes up his two-year degree, Daniels will have four years to play three starting this fall and his acquisition will make one school very, very happy once he arrives.
