First two offers in for Davison

Anaheim (Calif.) Servite defensive back Maurice Davison has been patiently waiting for his first scholarship offer to roll in and his patience was finally rewarded last week.

Maurice Davison is easily among the top corner prospects out West but schools have shied away due to concerns about his size. Davison measured out at 5-9, 173 pounds at the SoCal NIKE Camp, so it's not like he's tiny and his toughness and overall athleticism allows him to play much bigger than he is.

Davison is very quick, has a 40" vertical leap and plays with a mean streak on the field. He can press and is a very good tackler while having the speed to run with just about anyone.

On the recruiting front, Davison has been hearing from quite a few schools and landed his first two offers last week.

"Idaho was the first one," Davison said. "Coach Brown messaged me on twitter and asked me to call him. We talked and he told me he liked the way I play and how physical I was. Then he offered a scholarship and I was so excited and relieved at the same time.

"The next day, Eastern Washington talked to my dad and said the same thing. They like my style of play and wanted to offer as well. Hopefully this will open the floodgates for me but I'm definitely excited to have these first two right now."

Davison said offer No. 3 could be close as well.

"Washington State is coming to my school on Wednesday," Davison said. "They said they just want to see me in person before they offer so hopefully that happens for me. I'm also hearing from California, San Diego State, Arizona, Arizona State, Michigan State, Boston College and Pittsburgh.

"I'm going to camp at Michigan over the summer and I'll probably do Cal and SDSU too. I just want to see who's most interested and then I'll visit those schools. Things are picking up so I'm looking forward to playing the process out and seeing what happens."
