Malzahn Makes Impression On Top WR Prospect

Kyle Davis talks about his most recent trip to Auburn on Thursday and what it meant for the Tigers.

Lawrenceville, Ga.--The nation’s No. 5 ranked wide receiver prospect, Kyle Davis, made a quick trip to Auburn on Thursday to check out the Tigers and left with Coach Gus Malzahn and his staff making another strong impression. While he’s still very open with 10 schools on his list, Davis said Auburn is one that keeps gaining steam for him with every visit.

“It was good to get a little bit of one-on-one time with them because usually when I go up there are a lot of recruits around. It was good to actually get to know them and conversate with them.”

A big part of that was getting some individual time with Malzahn and Dameyune Craig. While recruits usually get the chance to catch up with potential position coaches, Davis said getting the ear of Malzahn was special for him.

“That was very important,” Davis said. “It shows interest, a lot of interest. When someone shows me interest I take well to that.”

While Davis didn’t participate in Thursday’s camp he did have the opportunity to watch Craig in action on the field. Seeing Craig’s coaching style up close and personal, Davis said he was very calm and that was fun to see.

“I didn’t see him get mad at all,” Davis said of Craig. “I was getting frustrated just watching them kids drop the ball. I don’t know how he wasn’t mad. He’s calm, cool and collected.”

With Auburn one of the schools that Davis said would likely be on his top five list if he were to narrow things down, the talented receiver said he doesn’t have a timetable for a final decision but would like to get it done sometime during his senior season if he finds the right fit.

“I’ll probably commit mid-season, but who knows,” Davis said. “I would really like to get it over with because it’s tough. It’s overwhelming. I’m trying so hard to focus on my school, but it’s hard.”

Planning to wrap up his recruiting soon to focus on his senior season at Archer High, Davis said he plans to take two more trips this summer before taking a break. Those will be to Tennessee on Saturday and later South Carolina.
