Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech athlete Daniel Easterly added Louisville and Purdue to his list of offers on Monday. Louisville is his first offer from a Big East school. The 6-4, 178 pound prospect says the Cardinals like him as a safety or outside linebacker.
"I have been down to Louisville a couple of times," Easterly said. "My dad lives down there, and I have other family and friends there. I like them a lot, I know the coaches well."
Assistant coach Antonio Goss, Louisville's Safety Coach and Special Teams Coordinator, is recruiting Easterly for the Cardinals.
"They like my aggressiveness," he said. They say my video shows that I like to knock people to the ground, take their heads off. My highlights show that I like to hit people, and play with a lot of energy."
Wide Receivers Coach Brian Rock is recruiting Easterly for Purdue.
"I don't know a lot about Purdue, but I am going to look into them and find out as much as I can."
Easterly says he is up to nine scholarship offers. Along with Louisville and Purdue, other major programs like Illinois, Michigan State, Minnesota, and Wisconsin have offered scholarships.
"I am going to start narrowing things down soon," Easterly said. "But right now, I am interested in anyone that in interested in me."
His junior season, Easterly recorded three interceptions, fifteen pass breakups, and four fumble recoveries. He does not shy away from contact, coming up from the safety spot to make 58 unassisted tackles last season.
