Avon, Ind., four-star defensive end Elijah Daniel took his first official visit in September to Marshall. He was supposed to take official visit No. 2 to Florida in October before that trip was postponed, but now that second official visit is nearly set.
"Mississippi State is probably going to be in two weeks (Nov. 17)," Daniel said. "I'm just looking to see if it is how they say it is on the phone. They are a hard-working program that puts people in the League."
At Mississippi State, Daniel is being recruited by assistant coach Tim Brewster. He is being recruited by Bryant Young at Florida, and the two parties are still discussing a rescheduling of that official visit.
"More than likely that will be after the season," Daniel said.
Daniel still maintains a commitment to Clemson that he made back in June, but is also looking at schools like Arizona State, Ole Miss, Indiana, Miami and Marshall. The Thundering Herd remain on his list after September's official visit.
"I am real comfortable with Marshall," Daniel said.
Avon's season came to an end on Friday in a playoff loss to Indianapolis Pike. Fellow four-star and Indiana commit David Kenney was on that Pike team and has been staying on Daniel to join him in Bloomington.
"I talked to David today," Daniel said. "He said they have stuff going the right way and we can make a difference there."
Daniel estimated his final senior season stats at 12 sacks and close to 80 total tackles. He is ranked as the No. 109 player in the country.
