Alexdaniel07jd200
Roswell (Ga.) athlete Alex Daniel has picked up his first two scholarship offers, both from Division I-A programs, during the last two weeks. The 5-foot-11, 195-pound safety/linebacker also believes that several more could be on the way in the near future.
"Air Force offered me last Thursday and Central Florida offered me Tuesday," he said. "I was talking to (Falcons head coach) Troy Calhoun on the phone last Thursday and they offered me then, but then they sent it in the mail over the weekend
"(Golden Knights head coach) George O'Leary called my head coach (Tim McFarlin) Tuesday and told them they were offering me a scholarship," he said. "I then got on the phone with (UCF recruiter) Dave Huxtable and he told me that they were going to send it to me in the mail very soon."
A pair of additional Conference USA programs also have been in touch and there is interest from some schools in the western part of the country as well.
"Coach McFarlin told me that Tulane and Southern Miss called and told him that they were planning to offer me soon," he said. "I have a guy out on the West coast helping me with recruiting too and he said BYU and San Diego State are close."
One Southeastern Conference and one Atlantic Coast Conference program are showing attention as well.
"Other than those, Vanderbilt and Boston College are showing a lot of attention," he said. "Both of them said they are coming to see me during the spring and may to our spring game."
Daniel has no leader at the moment, but there are three schools that have risen toward the top of his list.
"Right now, I don't have a real favorite or anything, but I like Air Force, Central Florida, and Vanderbilt a lot," he said. "Air Force and Central Florida have offered and Vanderbilt was the first school to start recruiting.
"That is about it right now. I am just looking at everyone recruiting me."
