DE Daniel Impressive on Film; Has Offers

Niceville (Fla.) High School senior defensive end Marqui Daniel has three scholarship offers and is taking an official visit to FAU this weekend. Based on Daniel's senior highlight tape he would have to be considered under-recruited at this point.

Niceville (Fla.) High School defensive end Marqui Daniel may be one of the more under-recruited prospects in north Florida after watching his senior highlight film. Daniel has been lightly recruited this year with just three scholarship offers this far. The 6-foot-3 and 220-pound senior who is taking an official visit to FAU this weekend might be a late steal for someone looking for a defensive end late in the recruiting process.

"Marqui has three offers; they are from Florida Atlantic, Eastern Kentucky and Fairmont State. He is visiting FAU this weekend," explained Niceville assistant coach Adron Robinson of Daniel's recruitment.

Several schools who have not offered are still actively recruiting the long, solidly built defender.

"Southern Miss, North Carolina A&T, The Citadel, Air Force and South Dakota State are all recruiting Marqui and it wouldn't surprise me if one or more of them offered," said Coach Robinson.

Coach Robinson believes that Daniel's future is a rush end in college.

"He is a black belt in karate and has a non-stop motor. He has the potential to be a big time rush end in college," said Coach Robinson of the under-recruited senior.

There is a lot to like about Daniel based of his senior highlight tape. Daniel is long but thick and has the frame to add substantial weight. He comes off the ball hard and will low pads. At times he shows a very quick first step when coming off the ball. Daniel also looks to be strong and uses his hands well in creating space and getting off blocks. He is a physical player who plays extremely hard and pursues the ball relentlessly. It would not surprise me at all to see several schools come in and offer Daniel a scholarship as we head into the last two weeks of the 2014 recruiting cycle.
