Ole Miss commit Elijah Daniel may flip yet again, visiting Auburn

Following one of the worst seasons in Auburn football history, BCS national championship-winning head coach Gene Chizik was fired. However, Chizik had one of the nation’s top recruiting classes coming in. After he was kicked to the curb, several recruits decided to look elsewhere as well.

Chizik’s offensive coordinator during the 2010 title run, Gus Malzahn, was brought in to replace him and after dealing with all of the losses has finally begun to hit his stride on the recruiting trail.

In mid-January, it was reported that five-star defensive end Elijah Daniel had flipped his commitment from Clemson (one hot recruiting program right now) to Ole Miss (probably the hottest team for recruits at the moment).

However, with 2013 National Signing Day literally days away, the 6-foot-4, 250-pound star has scheduled one last official visit.

To The Plains.

“Daniel is just 10 days removed from making a commitment to Ole Miss, but the revelation that the nation’s No. 107 ranked prospect is making a final weekend official visit casts doubt on the strength of that commitment,” Josh Helmholdt of Rivals.com wrote. “Daniel and his family are originally from the state of Alabama, but this move speaks more to Daniel being unsure about his Ole Miss commitment. For Auburn, this appears to be a backup move in case one or both of Carl Lawson and Tashawn Bower signs elsewhere next Wednesday. Both are committed to the Tigers, but also considering other schools.”

In the roller coaster world of college football recruiting, Daniel has made life especially interesting for the staffs of several programs. It does not look like he is going to make life any easier until Feb. 6, the actual last day for recruits to sign with prospective teams.
