McDaniel expects more offers to come

Because several colleges are showing interest, Fayetteville (N.C) Jack Britt junior wide receiver Jalen McDaniel, who currently has just one offer, is confident more are coming.
Thus far, only North Carolina State has pulled the trigger. But asked which program might be close to following suit, he replied, "I think everybody is."
Besides the Wolfpack, who is showing the 6-feet-2, 200-pound McDaniel the most interest?
"Coach John Dunn from Maryland and Coach [Charlie] Weis from Florida," McDaniel said. "Schools contact me on Facebook and through e-mail. Most of them say I need to come down for a visit and go to a game, keep my grades up … and they tell me they have their eyes on me."
McDaniel plans to attend several games this fall.
"I'm going to Florida on Oct. 1," he said. "I plan on going to Clemson. I'll probably go to an Auburn game. And I'll probably go to another Florida game."
McDaniel has no leader, but said he's currently looking the hardest at Clemson, Florida, North Carolina and North Carolina State.
Here's what he said about each…
Clemson: "I've been a Clemson fan since I was little. My cousin, Terrell McIntyre, played basketball there. And our tight end last year, Eric MacLain, signed there."
Florida: "I just love the Gators and their passing offense. I watched them the other night and all they did was pass against UAB. I just fell in love with it."
North Carolina: "It's a unique squad. They lost their coach and it was a humbling experience. I have a [former] teammate, Devonte Brown, there, and he's doing pretty good."
North Carolina State: "They also have a passing offense. And I love their coaching staff. They're amazing."
McDaniel doesn't know his season stats through four games, but said he had five catches for 110 yards last week. In 2010, he averaged more than 20 yards per reception.
"My style is hard-nosed," he said. "I use my body to make catches."
