Byron Daniels is living the life.
Big time college programs are offering the San Antonio (Texas) Madison receiver left and right, coaches are doing their best to get him to just take a look at their campus, and he has teammates, classmates, teachers, and reporters all wondering what he will do next.
It would be easy for him to think he has made it. However, he is still surprised by the offers and staying busy between workouts and college visits.

Like many of Daniels' weekends, this past weekend was productive. He picked up an offer from Oklahoma State and he took a trip to Waco for Baylor's junior. He enjoyed both very much. Oklahoma State now finds themselves among his favorites and the campus, the facilities and practice at Baylor all caught his attention.
So what is next on the schedule?
Daniels believes Baylor and Arizona State could offer next, and he also could take a few more trips in the near future.
"I just know coaches have been asking me to go to some of their spring games so I'm going to try and make it to some of those," Daniels said. "I know for sure Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and (Texas) Tech."
He also has a favorite at this point in the recruiting process.
"I would say Tech," Daniels said. "Just how their coaches are towards me. They tell me how everything would be and tell me how I would fit in as a player at Tech. They're just very up front with it."
Running back coach and former Cibolo Steele head coach Mike Jinks is leading his recruitment for the Red Raiders, but they also have another ace up their sleeve in Cibolo Steele running back and Texas Tech commitment Justin Stockton.
"When he committed there he was on me heavy and he still is to this day," Daniels said.
Joining Texas Tech on his list of favorites are two other Big 12 programs.
"Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, I would say that's the top three right now," Daniels said.
Like Texas Tech, Oklahoma State also has a recruiter in his ear in 2013 signee Vincent Taylor, who Daniels says has been on him to give the Cowboys a look.
In addition to offers from Texas Tech, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State, he has also been offered by Houston, Minnesota, and Nebraska.
