Even during a global pandemic, Omar Daniels found a future college.
And he did it without stepping foot on campus.
This past school year and current off-season, the Kansas State commit had never made a visit to Manhatten.
So following a scholarship offer from the Wildcats in early May, Daniels revealed a verbal commitment less than 10 days later without taking a trip to the Big 12 program.
“First of all, great coaching staff and relationship building with them,” he said. “Also, great education. They are willing to put education and making me into a better person outside of football.”
The Colquitt County (GA) defensive back confirmed that his recruiting was not finished following the recent commitment.
“I’m not shut down.”
Colorado and Ohio made the latest offers to Daniels just days after the one from Kansas State.
He holds other offers as well which includes East Carolina, Gardner-Webb, Eastern Kentucky, Georgia State, Arkansas State, Buffalo, Liberty, Tennessee Tech, Western Illinois, Georgia Southern, Western Carolina, Coastal Carolina, Alabama A&M, Akron, Troy, Tennessee State, Austin Peay and Kent State.
The 2021 prospect became the fifth member of the Wildcats recruiting class joining quarterback Jake Rubley (CO), athletes Davonte Pritchard (KS) and Jayden Williams (IA) along with wide receiver Dorian Stephens (KS).
