Globe Tech CB Mike Daniels recently hauled in an offer from West Virginia and more schools could be offering in the near future

2016 Globe Tech CB Mike Daniels (6-0, 195) recently hauled in an offer from West Virginia and he's got plenty of other programs interested in what he can do...

"West Virginia was my first offer, but I have a bunch of other schools contacting me and showing me interest," Mike Daniels told JCFootball.com. "The other ones I have been hearing from are Middle Tennessee, Buffalo, New Mexico and Nebraska. Houston likes my film and Auburn just contacted me (Monday) night."

Daniels said he hopes to set up a visit with West Virginia after his season is completed.

With the Volunteers, Daniels has impressed them with his physical style of play and ball skills.

"They said that they needed defensive backs and I fit in their defensive scheme pretty well," Daniels noted.

So far this season, Daniels has locked down his side of the field, posting 36 tackles to go along with a team-leading seven interceptions.

"I love to play physical," Daniels said. "I love both press and zone actually.

"Pressing allows me to challenge the wide receiver and zone allows me to pick up on the quarterback and make plays, but if I had to choose I'd choose press."

Daniels is a natural corner with great ball skills, however, his refinement as a cover-man didn't happen overnight. He had to put in a lot of hours, both in the film room and on the field.

"I spent a lot of time in the weight room and doing one-on-ones during the summer to work on my footwork and my technique," Daniels said. "I also studied a lot of film, mostly just watching myself and knowing what I could improve on so I could be better on the field."

As a prep, Daniels was a standout at South Dade Senior High in Miami, Florida, but he was unable to qualify.

"I was recruited by (Globe) head coach Cameron Chadwick and coach Curtis Gulliam," Daniels said. "I chose Globe because a couple of my teammates from high school had came here and I wanted to play with them.. I also believe it's not about where you play, but how you play."

Daniels is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in May and he will have three years to play two following the 2015 football season.
