Daniel is blowing up

Kangera Daniel

Kengera Daniel is a prospect on the rise. The Raleigh (N.C.) Millbrook defensive end gave Scout.com the latest.

A few months ago, Alabama became the first school to offer Kengera Daniel. Since that time, his recruitment has gained momentum.

"After Alabama offered, I got an offer from Elon," said the 6-foot-5, 235-pound Daniel. "Then Wake Forest offered me, and in the past two weeks, I've gotten four more offers – ECU, Miami, Boston College and Appalachian State."

Daniel is also hearing from Clemson, Ohio State, Florida State and Indiana.

Recently, he visited two schools. First, was East Carolina.

"It was pretty nice," Daniel said. "All the coaches are genuine guys and they want what's best for you. It's a great program over all.

"The thing that stood out to me while I was there was the compassion the coaches have for the game and the compassion they have for their players."

Last weekend, Daniel took a trip to Alabama for their spring game.

"The visit was great," he said. "It was fun to get back down to Tuscaloosa and experience a game-day atmosphere.

"My conversations with the coaches weren't very lengthy because they had to focus on the game. But of course I got to speak to coach (Nick) Saban and (linebackers) coach (Kevin) Steele, and they told me how highly they thought of me and basically made sure I knew I was still wanted there."

He will head to Wake Forest this weekend.

In regards to summer, Daniel has a few trips in mind.

"Off the top of my head, I know I'm going to camps at Wake Forest, Ohio State, Clemson and Alabama," he said.

He has a timeline for his decision.

"I'll probably narrow my list of schools down in late June or early July," Daniel said. "The original date I picked out to make my commitment was July 28, which is my birthday. If I don't do it then, it will be no more than a month later.

Daniel claims no favorites at this time.

Last season, Daniel finished with 85 tackles, 42 tackles for loss, 13 sacks and an interception.
