4-star DE Daniel visiting Florida
By Derek Tyson
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- ESPN 150 defensive end Elijah Daniel (Avon, Ind./Avon) recently visited Ole Miss. The 6-foot-3, 249-pound athlete said he was impressed with the Rebels had to offer.
"It was probably the best visit I've ever taken during the recruiting process," Daniel said.
Daniel, who has also taken official visits to Marshall and Mississippi State, will officially visit Florida on Jan. 11. The four-star end said he is just looking to interact with the Florida coaches on his visit.
"I just want to have fun and connect with the coaches and probably sit down and do some film study," Daniel said at the Under Armour All-America Game registration.
Daniel had been committed to Clemson, but the talented lineman said the Tigers are no longer under consideration. As for favorites, Daniel said there are several schools at the top.
"You can throw some schools in there like Florida, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Arizona State, IU, schools like that," Daniel said. "I'm looking for someone that's going to take care of you on al levels. Strength and conditioning, academics and someone that will get you to the next level."
The No. 82-ranked player in the country said he is unsure of when he will announce his college destination.
