Armonze Daniel to the SEC?

I caught up with Armonze Daniel (OLB-Avon HS in Indiana) over the weekend. He says that he will be graduating in December and begin college in January. Armonze also stated that he thought that he would be playing in the SEC, but did not toally rule out playing elsewhere (he and his brothers grew up on SEC Football). He, and his brother Montez Robinson (Montez played for Georgia in '09, but is now attending colllege in Mississippi) are pretty much a package deal so it seems, they really want to play together.

Armonze is rated as the #12 OLB according to one service and within the Top 40 of the other services (he missed most of his Junior year with a ruptured spleen). He visited Miss State and earlier this month, and has a visit set for Iowa (I will believe that one when I see it, but hey I can be wrong). If I were to guess, I would say the Top 3 are Auburn, Miss State and probably LSU. The family is originally from Tuscaloosa, so Auburn would seem like the most logical fit.

He also stated that he has spoken with UK within the last month. One thing for sure, he and both of his brothers (Montez, and Elijah Daniel-class of '13) are the type of athlete that Kentucky must start getting on a more consistent basis in order to take the next step up the ladder in the SEC.
