As a junior, Drew Davis had 45 catches for 988 yards and 16 touchdowns. He was named first team all-conference and state. "I work really hard and I figure all my hard work will transfer onto the playing field," Davis says. "I work out a lot and I am always trying to become a better player."

The wideout is a mid-year graduate so he will be at his college of choice next spring. Davis is receiving plenty of attention from top schools and he is torn on whether or not he will leave the state. "I kind of want to get out and see another state. I have been born and raised in Colorado and there is not much to do here. But, if my parents want me to stay in-state, I will. My dad has told me I need to go out of the state and grow up and my mom has not really commented on the situation yet."

Davis is currently listing a top five of USC, UCLA, Colorado, Michigan, and Notre Dame. He currently has a verbal offer from CU. "I don't have a favorite but I would say Michigan is recruiting me the hardest right now."

Colorado is in the mix. "I have grown up loving CU. I have always said that I wanted to play there. I really liked Coach Barnett when he was there. After all the stuff he went through he never gave up. I have spoken with the new coach there and he told me the kind of stuff they plan on doing. I have also spoken with Coach Hagan a lot in the past and I am glad they kept him. I will be watching Colorado closely. I want to see if they can pull out a big win against a school like Texas or another big-name school. If I stay in-state that is where I will go to school."

Davis plans on attending junior days at CU and Colorado State. He also might attend a junior day at Michigan, where his former teammate and good friend, Greg Banks, now attends school. As for summer camps, right now Davis is looking at making an appearance at a UCLA camp.

He carries a 4.0 core GPA and ranks ninth in his class. Davis scored an 18 on the ACT and is unsure on what he will major in.
