Nine Offers In, Three at the Top
Javonte Daniel profile "We're having an okay season right now," said Daniel. "We won last week and we're 2-2 in our region. We play Columbus this week. We have to beat them to get into the playoffs." Javonte believes that his efforts during the off season prepared him for a great senior season. "I feel like I am playing pretty good," said Daniel. "I feel like I am having a better season this year over last year. I am using my hands a lot better to get off of blocks and make tackles." Improved play and a great frame have college recruiters more than a little interested. "I think I have nine offers right now. "Arkansas, Marshall, Memphis, Southern Miss, East Carolina, Middle Tennessee, UAB, Mississippi State and one more have offered me. "Mississippi State offered me about a month ago. They were the last big school to offer me. "They called me and told me they were offering me a scholarship. Coach Sallach is talking with me every week. I am trying to get down there for a game some time soon. I am talking with my mom about that now." The Bulldogs might have been a little late to the party, but Coach Dan Mullen and his staff have worked their way into the top three. "Mississippi State, Arkansas and Kansas are my top schools right now," said Javonte. "Kansas says they want to offer me, but they want to see me play in person before they do anything." When decision time comes, the chance to contribute early will weigh heavily in Daniel's deliberations. "I just want to go somewhere I can go play," said Javonte. "I want to go somewhere I can work hard and earn a spot on the field. "I am thinking about marketing or business for my major, but I am not sure yet." Javonte plans to make his selection before Christmas.
