The 6' 4", 300 pound defensive tackle out of Mansfield had a two day visit over to Ole Miss…
Aggies host 5-star defensive lineman
"Texas A&M kept sending me letters so I figured I'd go see what they are all about," Davenport said. "It was a lot more than I expected. I was thinking it was a small country town, but it's a big schools in a nice community."
Davenport has his choice of top schools from all over the country with offers from most D-1 programs including LSU, Alabama, Florida State, Ole' Miss, Tennessee and Texas A&M to name just a few. Davenport has been busy visiting many schools on his list, and the Aggies had their shot earlier this week.
"Overall it was a good visit. The coaches are all cool and laid back and I enjoyed that," Davenport said. "The facilities were nice and they are in the process of renovating a lot of stuff, but the facilities at all these places are about the same to me. They are all good."
So what did Davenport and the A&M staff discuss during his unofficial visit?
"They said I can come in and play right away and make a difference," Davenport said. "They are trying to get the Wrecking Crew tradition back and I could be a part of it. I didn't know what that was until they explained it to me. It's pretty cool."
The 6-foot-4, 330-pound defensive lineman from Louisiana also spoke highly of his recruiting coach, Randy Jordan, and he enjoyed talking with several of the players, especially the featured running back in next year's offense.
"I hung out with Coach Jordan a lot and we got along. I talked to some players like running back Michael Goodson who's supposed to light it up for them next season," Davenport said. "It was a good time. I'm glad I went. I'd give it between an 8 – 9.5."
When asked about his list of favorites, Davenport was less talkative and kept his thoughts close to the vest. He did not list any favorites and said he's open for now. However, he did say that A&M would be one of the schools he'd consider when it's time to narrow his list to five for his official visits.
"I'm not thinking about lists and leaders right now. I'm seeing schools and doing my research, but after my visit I'd say Texas A&M is in consideration for an official visit," Davenport said. "But I'm not worried about that now. I'm focusing on getting faster and stronger for next season."
While Davenport wouldn't elaborate on a timetable, it does sound like he'll take his five official visits and take his decision down to the wire close to Signing Day.
