In 2014, Danielle transferred to the University of Arizona. "When I decided to leave SDSU, I didn’t know where I was going to go. I wasn’t even sure I was going to play softball still. State was not where I wanted to be and that is all I knew at the time. Some colleges don’t fit some people, and that is completely up to the person. Taking nothing away from SDSU and the people who are there and who graduated from there. It just wasn’t for me. I told a couple of friends I left SDSU and all of a sudden, I am getting phone calls I never even dreamed of. One of the last phone calls I received was from Mike Candrea, asking if I’d like a visit. I heard from others that when you get to a campus, you just know that you want to be there and you absolutely love it. I didn’t feel that way at any campus… until I got to Arizona. I just knew. It was one of the best decisions I ever made and I am very thankful to Coach for giving me a chance."
