The state of Iowa has four players with significant scholarship offers this year, a number that is near the apex of what the state typically produces. It's just that this year, there are two or three ‘elite' level players that are hearing from some of the nation's ‘big boys' in addition to the regional powers. One such player is Cedar Rapids WR Keenan Davis, and we recently spoke with him...

The state of Iowa has four players with significant scholarship offers this year, a number that is near the apex of what the state typically produces.

It's just that this year, there are two or three ‘elite' level players that are hearing from some of the nation's ‘big boys' in addition to the regional powers.

Brandon Wegher from Sioux City received early offers from Auburn and Penn State, schools that usually don't spend a lot of time scouring the state of Iowa for talent.

Another player receiving national interest is Cedar Rapids Washington wide receiver Keenan Davis.

Davis has offers from Iowa, Iowa State, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Arizona State, Illinois, Colorado, Kansas, Cincinnati and Minnesota.

HN.com's Brian Finley recently spoke with Davis for this Q&A:

HN: How have things been going lately, on the recruiting front?

Davis: I went down to Iowa for the one day camp; I just went down to visit with the coaches. I watched our quarterback play. I am trying to concentrate on football now.

What aspects of your game are you working on this summer? Speed, quickness, strength?

Davis: I am trying to get faster; I have been lifting weights and running each day, and trying to get better at what we do as a team.

Are you planning on taking any more visits this summer, or are you going to wait to take those during the season or after?

Davis: I don't know. I haven't really talked to coaches yet, but I am trying to set up some this summer.

What are some of the schools that you still want to get out and visit?

Davis: I want to check out Arizona State, Colorado and Illinois. I will come back down to visit Iowa, too.

Are any of the schools that have offered your standing out as your leader at this particular point in time?

Davis: Iowa is recruiting me the hardest, but I am still pretty open right now.

What will separate things for you, as it relates to narrowing down your list at some point in time?

Davis: If it's a good place, and I have a good relationship with the coaches, I don't think I will have a problem making that decision when that time comes.

There are a number of highly ranked players from the state of Iowa this year, perhaps more than usual. Do you talk with any of them, and see where they are leaning?

Davis: I haven't really paid too much attention. But I know Wegher, Cotton and Barrent, I know that Barrent committed to Iowa. It would help Iowa if we all went there, but we all just want to find a place where we fit in the best.

Davis said that he hasn't fielded any new scholarship offers in recent weeks. We will check back in with Davis in August, or earlier if news warrants.
