Michigan is another major offer for Darrell Daniels but the Oakley (Calif.) Freedom wide receiver said he's hesitant to name a frontrunner because he still wants to have each school on equal footing.
The Wolverines definitely impress the 6-foot-4, 205-pound prospect and he's strongly considering an official visit there in the fall.
"My coach was talking to me and he kept in contact with them and they offered me," Daniels said.
"It's a huge program. I like Michigan. That's a big offer right there. I never thought I'd get offered by Michigan.
"I don't know if I could get out there soon. I might have to wait for an official visit. Right now I don't know. I'll have to talk with my coach about that."
So far, Daniels has received offers from Michigan, Auburn, Colorado, Oregon State and UCLA but he plans to take his time with his recruitment. Trips to USC and UCLA could happen this spring but the four-star is not rushing things.
"I don't have any favorites right now," Daniels said. "I'm kind of waiting things out a little longer.
"I'm just giving everybody a fair chance right now. I don't want to scare anybody away by picking a leader."
More schools are getting involved with Daniels, who caught 30 passes for 526 yards and seven touchdowns in his junior season. He also rushed for four scores.
Daniels, who shined at the U.S. Army National Combine, said he's hearing more from two Pac-12 schools.
"Oregon has been showing me a lot of interest," Daniels said. "The coaches are trying to build trust with me. Washington is involved, too. Tosh Lupoi, who was at Cal, I've been talking to him a little bit, too."
Daniels is rated No. 170 in the early 2013 rankings by Rivals.com.
