Daniel sets Mississippi State visit

Avon (Ind.) defensive end Elijah Daniel, who still claims to be a Clemson commit, has set up another official visit for November after seeing Marshall on an official visit in September and stopping by both Indiana and Purdue this fall for unofficial visits.

Avon (Ind.) DE Elijah Daniel maintains he is still a Clemson commit.

“Just Mississippi State next month for an official,” Daniel said of his next scheduled trip. “It’s like the second weekend of November, like November 16th, their last home game.”

The 6-foot-3, 250-pound four-star prospect talked about his trip to Starkville and his desire to see all the school and football program has to offer.

“You know I’m really hoping to see everything from football to academics, campus life, coaches, players, the whole atmosphere and everything,” Daniel explained. “You know me and Coach Brew (Tim Brewster) have a tight relationship, so I’m interested in going down there to take an official and see what they have to offer.”

Brewster has taken the lead on Daniel’s recruitment for the Bulldogs and has already struck a solid bond.

“He said I’m good kid and he really likes how I play and I really hearing stuff like that,” Daniel said of Brewster. “Basically, we have real good connection. I can’t wait to get down there to visit him and stuff.”

When asked what other schools could possibly get visits from him in the future, Daniel left off a surprising school from his list.

“Florida and I’m not sure on the others, but Ole Miss probably, Miami,” he said. “I don’t know, just some of my top schools.”

With Clemson not being mentioned, does the school he still claims to be committed to get a visit in the future?

“I’m not sure at this point right now, but maybe, maybe not,” Daniel said.

The one school long linked to Daniel despite his pledge to Clemson has been the Gators. Daniel insists he remains in steady contact with the staff in Gainesville.

“I speak to Florida probably once, twice a week. They came up to watch me play two or three weeks ago. You know I have a connection with Coach [Bryant] Young.”

247Sports recently bumped Daniel’s ranking to the nation’s No. 83 prospect overall.
