Columbus Brookhaven star Alex Daniels is starting to get into the thick of
recruiting, but his team's state title win is still on his mind.
"I am still not over the championship," he said. "I won't get
over that for awhile."
Daniels took a few minutes to talk to OSU head coach Jim Tressel this
"I was over at Ohio State for awhile today," Daniels said. "I
spoke to Coach Tressel. It went well."
This past weekend, Daniels took a trip to the University of Minnesota.
Daniels talked a bit about the trip.
"Minnesota was fun," he said. "Mostly because of the players.
There are so many guys I know from high school. There are like 10 players from
right here in Columbus. Guys I have known for years. It was a nice visit."
Daniels will be on his way to Oklahoma next and talked about visiting Ohio
"I am going to Oklahoma this weekend," he said. "I haven't set
anything up with Ohio State but that is going to happen."
The 6-3, 225-pound Daniels is ranked as Ohio's No. 3 prospect by Ohio High. He helped lead Brookhaven to a 15-0 record and the Division II state championship. He had two short touchdown runs, seven tackles, one tackle-for-loss, one fumble recovery and one pass break-up in his team's 42-21 win over defending champion and previously undefeated Avon Lake in the title game.
During the regular season, Daniels had 75 tackles, 4-1/2 sacks and 3 INTs with 2 for TDs.
Although he now projects as a linebacker, Daniels is rated as the nation's 16th-best safety prospect by Scout.com.
