Offers rolling in for Davis
"In the third game, I cracked the top of my collarbone and fractured it," Davis said. "I missed the rest of the regular season and came back for the last game in the playoffs."
Davis was quick to say that while the injury caused him to miss most of his junior campaign, it did not require surgery and it is completely healed. College coaches also believe he's put the injury behind him because the offers are starting to roll in for the talented big back.
"I've been offered by Missouri, UH, TCU, Central Florida," Davis said. "And Coach Sherman at Texas A&M recently offered me a scholarship."
Davis attended the Aggies' first junior day two weeks ago, and came away impressed with the facilities and the coaches.
"They showed us all the athletic facilities and they were very impressive," Davis said. "I really liked the running backs coach (Randy Jordan). He was a big back like me and played in the NFL. He discussed what he expects from his players, to be on-time, willing to work hard, and do what it takes to take it to the next level."
The blue chip running back, rated No. 27 on the M&W/Aggie Websider Top 100, brings several assets to the field that make him one of the best ball carriers in the state of Texas. He recorded a 4.48 40 at the Texas camp last summer, but also has the frame to power through defenders.
"I think my strength is my combination of speed and power. I can run the ball inside effectively, and I can bounce it to the outside and outrun the defense," Davis said. "I also have the ability to read the field and see the hole quickly."
Davis says there's always room for improvement and has his sites set on getting even faster and quicker before his senior season. But when to comes to recruiting, fast and quick isn't what he's looking for at the moment.
"I'm open right now and I want to look at more schools before I narrow it down," Davis said. "A&M is definitely in the running. I grew up following all the Texas schools and the Big 12, but I want to see what my option are before I start choosing a schools."
Teams that have shown interest in Davis include Texas A&M, Missouri, TCU, UH, Florida, Texas, OSU, and Northwestern among others. So what is Davis looking for in a school when it's time to choose where he wants to be at the next level?
"I want to go somewhere with a lot of school spirit and traditions, and I have to feel comfortable there," Davis said. "Third, I want to go where I'm needed and where the coaches really want me."
Davis indicated that he'd like to major in accounting.
