Ohio Junior Lands First Offer

Canton McKinley junior linebacker Jamal Davis is on the radar of several top programs, and last week saw him land his first offer. Who is showing interest to Davis?

Jamal Davis has been a 2014 prospect of note at Canton McKinley since breaking into the lineup midway through his sophomore season.

Davis, 6-foot-3, 215-pounds, is on the recruiting radar of several top teams, and he recently landed his first offer.

"Toledo offered me last week, and that was some really good news to hear," Davis stated. "I'm hoping there are more to come, but the first one is a relief and let's me know my hard work is paying off. It's good to see that schools have noticed me."

Toledo isn't the only school paying attention to Davis, and he is in contact with other programs.

"I'm hearing from Louisville, Michigan, West Virginia, Pittsburgh and Ohio State," he explained. "Coach (Mike) Vrabel from Ohio State was at our workout Tuesday, and he isn't allowed to talk to us, but he said hello to Eric Glover-Williams and me. Coach (Luke) Fickell and I talk every so often, and we made a connection at camp last summer."

"I will be going to Louisville for a junior day for sure, and Duke just invited me to theirs," he added. "Transportation is a problem taking these visits, but I'm definitely interested in a lot of schools. I'm trying to get to a lot of college camps next summer, if possible. Oklahoma State said they would offer if I came to their camp, but I'm not sure I can get there. I've grown an inch and a half since the season ended, and I've put on five pounds of muscle."

"My speed and athleticism seem to be what coaches are looking for, but I need to work on my strength to be a better player," he continued.

Although Davis started off slowly as a junior, he played very well down the stretch for Canton McKinley. He is a prospect to watch in Ohio.
