    David Daniel growing relationship with Ohio State
    The country’s second-ranked 2021 athlete is succeeding on his mission to make a name for himself.

    “Three years ago, we moved from South Florida” David Daniel, who now stars at Woodstock (Ga.) High School told Lettermen Row. “It was in the middle of my eighth-grade year, just after I won a super bowl in my youth league. My dad’s job moved us here. When my parents were searching for homes, I believed they reached out to some people that watched my youth film and they wanted him to move to McEachern or the Marietta area.

    “But they settled in Woodstock and I love it here. Now I’ve got to make a name for myself and bring that attention to Woodstock.”

    Had he ended up at Marietta or McEachern, two of Georgia’s powerhouse programs, the attention would’ve come much easier. But playing at Woodstock hasn’t stopped big-time colleges like Ohio State from finding the 6-foot-2, 185-pound athlete.

    “I spoke to [linebackers coach Al] Washington several times before and during spring,” Daniel said. “I believe he also reached out and spoke to my coach to see how I been doing in the summer. He’s easy to talk to and has been genuine in the recruiting process. I haven’t had any discussions with Coach Day yet, but I’ve also spoken to [co-defensive coordinator Jeff] Hafley once.”

    Daniel stayed local this past summer, visiting Georgia, Georgia Tech and Clemson. But he knows this upcoming season is one that will shape his recruitment moving forward. He is hoping to make his way to Columbus, but distance makes it hard to plan a game-day trip during the fall.

    “My family and I spoke about the possibility of visiting Ohio State,” he said. “I want to visit, but it’s all on my family if we can take a trip. It might be hard during game days, but maybe for a junior day if they invite me.

    “Ohio State has always been a top football program and have produced some of the best athletes in the country. I want to learn more about the academics and the support they provide their athletes and get a chance to see the campus and dorms.”

    The Buckeyes are one of Daniel’s 26 scholarship offers, a list that includes the cream of the crop of college football. Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Oklahoma, Florida, Florida State and many more have made an early pitch for the top-40 national prospect.
