Davidson gets good news

Now that the high school season is well underway, things are picking up on the recruiting trail. After scouting him in person, Alabama called tight end Trent Davidson Thursday night with an official scholarship offer.

According to Davidson, Tide coach Bobby Connelly called him with the good news. "I want to make some more game-day visits before making my final decision," Davidson said. "But I'll inform you the moment I decide."

Davidson also has offers from Florida, Florida State, Auburn and LSU, but the Brewton native favors the Tide.

A big, athletic player, Trent Davidson (6-5, 242, 4.66) could bulk up and end up playing on the offensive line. But he's expected to start off at tight end.

In high school Davidson is a prototype tight end who reminds our staff of former Penn State great, Kyle Brady. He is a phenomenal blocker, who also has great hands, and is willing to sacrifice his body to make acrobatic catches.

Recently Davidson attended the Alabama/Oklahoma game where he was blown away by the crowd. "The atmosphere is incredible," Davidson told TheInsiders.com's Andrew Bone in a recent interview. "There is not another school in the nation that can compete with the excitement you feel when you watch the Jumbotron and hear Bear Bryant talking and hear the elephant roar."

Alabama is limited to just 19 scholarships for this year's class, and they're being very selective with their scholarship offers. Easily one of the top tight end prospects in the state, Davidson would be an excellent pickup for the Tide.

"I'm going to compare all the schools and then make my decision," Davidson said.
