Davis Pulls the Trigger Early

Davis Pulls the Trigger Early

The Texas A&M coaching staff held its first junior day for the 2014 recruiting class over the weekend. Designed as a small, elite event with only a small number of highly-rated prospects, the staff provided personal one-on-one attention. That attention paid off when Garland Lakeview Centennial offensive tackle Kealvin Davis quickly accepted an offer to join the 2014 class.

The Texas A&M coaching staff held its first junior day for the 2014 recruiting class over the weekend. Designed as a small, elite event with only a small number of highly-rated prospects, the staff provided personal one-on-one attention. That attention paid off when Garland Lakeview Centennial offensive tackle Kealvin Davis quickly accepted an offer to join the 2014 class that now stands at seven.

"I liked everything about Texas A&M. The school, the coaches, the players...it felt right for me," Davis said. "When I was meeting with Coach Sumlin, he said they wanted me to be part of their team and do big things at A&M, and I told him I wanted to join, so I committed."

The Texas A&M staff projects the 6-foot-5, 255-pound athletic lineman to eventually be the team's left tackle. Davis is considered to be the most athletic lineman in the state, but will need to gain weight and fill-out his lower base before he will be ready to take on SEC defensive linemen.

"Coach Anderson says I'm the most athletic lineman he's recruited in years," Davis said. "I'll need to work on adding muscle mass and improving my strength, but they see me as their left tackle in a couple of years."

The Metroplex product has no plans to take additional visits to other schools, and while he can't control what other coaches do to contact him, he says Aggieland is where he'll be in 2014.

"I don;t think I'm going to take any other visits. Texas A&M is where I want to be for the next four years," Davis said. "As my coach told me, if coaches come by the school and want to talk, I'm sure we'll talk. But I'll tell them I'm solid to Texas A&M."

The commitment gives he Aggies seven early pledges for the 2014 recruiting class. With two defensive backs, two linebackers, one receiver, and one running back in the fold prior to the weekend, Davis marks the first offensive lineman in this class. Overall, the Aggies are projected to sign a class of 19-21 prospects.
