Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods defensive tackle Daniel Cage's momentum on the recruiting trail has stayed strong throughout the month of March with three schools offering the 6-foot-3, 275-pound lineman in the last few weeks.
"I have several [new offers] - West Virginia, Vanderbilt and Missouri," Cage said. "I had good chats with all those coaches, so I am looking forward to going there and actually seeing them with my own two eyes and getting a better feel for the campuses."
Of the new offers, West Virginia is the program he knows best and has had the most contact with over the last few weeks.

"I have been talking to the West Virginia coach a lot," Cage said. "I have been down there once for a camp. I didn't really get the best view of the campus because we just breezed through, but I really liked what I saw. Coach Slaughter is the one recruiting me, and he was telling me to come down, see how they run practice down there and get a better feel for the West Virginia program."
That trip to Morgantown could happen as early as next week. Winton Woods' goes on spring break starting Friday, giving Cage some time off to visit colleges.
"I am going to try to get out to West Virginia and Georgia Tech. I am going to try to do those next week," Cage said. "My coach was planning on taking us to Georgia Tech. We're going to get with him maybe tomorrow and try to plan this out."
If Cage does make it down to Atlanta to see Georgia Tech, he said he will likely be accompanied by teammates Mike Edwards, who also holds an offer from the Yellowjackets. Edwards is set to trim his list down to six schools in the coming weeks, but Cage is not ready to eliminate any schools at this time.
"I'm still pretty wide open," he said. "I'm still waiting for a later decision."
