### Top 5 Schools Shortlisted by 2025 Linebacker Travares Daniels II, Featuring Georgia Tech

Georgia’s 2025 prospect Travares Daniels II, with 21 offers, has narrowed his choices to a top five comprising Maryland, SMU, Indiana, USF, and Georgia Tech. Despite holding a Georgia Tech offer since January, he is yet to visit the campus this year.

Daniels II, a 6’3, 205-pound outside linebacker from St. Thomas Aquinas in Florida, recently secured his 15th state championship. Noteworthy is the discrepancy in his position classification, being labeled a safety on platforms like On3 and ESPN. At the grassroots level, he excels as an instinctive disruptor at outside linebacker, showcasing exceptional tackling skills and coverage abilities, particularly excelling in covering slot receivers with precision and physicality.

His versatility and skill set present a dilemma regarding his future position, contingent upon the defensive scheme and coaching strategies at the collegiate level. Whether deployed as a safety adept at aggressive play near the line of scrimmage or as an outside linebacker proficient in both pass rushing and coverage, Daniels II’s potential impact on the field is highly anticipated. Despite being a three-star recruit on ESPN, his on-field performance speaks volumes, culminating in an impressive junior season with notable statistics, including a standout performance in the state championship game.

If Georgia Tech secures Daniels II’s commitment, they stand to gain a versatile player with exceptional instincts, poised to make immediate contributions to the team’s defense. With Georgia Tech already attracting promising prospects for the 2025 class, Daniels II’s potential addition underscores the program’s commitment to recruiting top talent and enhancing its defensive capabilities.
