Reggie Daniels said he's looking to leave the state of Arizona for college and that's one of many reasons why Arkansas is the early frontrunner while considering other options as well.
The Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton safety said he likes what he's hearing from the Razorbacks' staff and that he's strongly considering Arkansas at this point in his recruitment.
Arizona State, Oregon State and Montana have also offered.

"I like ASU but I kind of want to go to an out-of-state college," Daniels said. "Arkansas sounds like a really good school. The coaches told me how they have a brand-new facility, a brand-new field and they seem like a really good program. I'm interested in going there but I'm waiting it out a little bit.
"I'm still weighing things out but right now Arkansas is the leader. I really like their program. I've been a fan of Arkansas for a while. I like their conference and the teams that they play. It seems like a really good school to play for."
Arkansas landed Kelvin Fisher Jr., Brock Haman and Alonzo Highsmith out of Arizona in its 2011 recruiting class but Daniels said that hasn't played a big influence on why he likes the Razorbacks so much.
The 6-foot, 170-pound prospect recently picked up the Oregon State offer and while he doesn't know much about the Beavers yet he's doing his research and talking to the coaching staff.
"I don't really know that much but the defensive coordinator, when I talked to him, seemed really nice and excited to offer me," Daniels said. "He was telling me about their program and their facilities and how their team is."
Arizona and TCU are the two schools showing interest in Daniels, one of the top prospects at the Phoenix Under Armour combine.
