4-star standout Damon McDaniel , who is one of the top wide receivers in the country, had been scheduled to take an official visit to LSU this weekend. According to Landstown head coach Chris Beatty, the 6-0, 195-pound star may reschedule the trip for later this month.
“I think he’s going to reschedule it,” Beatty said of the official visit. LSU plays Florida this weekend. “I think he’s going to take it on the weekend of the 28th, which is our bye week.”
McDaniel, along with teammate Percy Harvin, made an official visit to Florida last month. Of the experience, Beatty says McDaniel “liked it. He liked it a lot. Both he and Percy had a really good time.”
Miami, Virginia Tech and Ohio State round out McDaniel’s top five schools. Beatty says McDaniel “probably will not take a visit to Florida State” and believes his star will take official visits to the five aforementioned programs. McDaniel has an official visit set to Virginia Tech for the weekend of November 5th. The final two visits have not been scheduled, although Beatty noted that McDaniel and Harvin may make official visits to Miami on October 22nd.
“I’m not sure about that date,” Beatty said of the Miami visit. “I think that’s what they’ll do, but those two have already rescheduled other visits before.”
Asked if McDaniel had any favorites, Beatty answered “I would say Florida is ahead, but that’s the only school he’s been to. And he’s been there twice. Other than that, I wouldn’t say he has any favorites. I think he’ll take into account all five official visits. I think he’ll go where he fits in the best. I don’t think it’s so much in-state or out-of-state.”
McDaniel is having an outstanding senior season. In six games, he has 40 catches for 676 yards and 11 touchdowns. He has 8 rushes for 143 yards and a touchdown and has 4 punt returns for 176 yards and a score. Defensively, McDaniel has 2 interceptions.
College coaches will make their way to Landstown in the next few weeks. Coach Beamer and Coach Stinespring will head down there for this week’s game, while Florida’s Urban Meyer will be there in two weeks.
Asked if star receiver Percy Harvin is considering either of the in-state programs, Beatty simply replied “no.”...
