The Hoosiers have already pulled one talented lineman out of Wyoming, Ohio in current starter Larry Black. Now they would like to add another. Rising senior Terry Davis is talented two-way tackle making a name for himself at Wyoming High School and his versatility has the Hoosiers very intrigued.

"Me and my best friend A.J. Williams, who committed to Michigan, we went up there for a visit to their first spring practice," said Davis. "My coach wanted me to get up there and look at the facilities.

"When I left there was actually kind of a misunderstanding about it, but Coach Wilson offered me that day. I didn't actually know until the following Saturday actually, because it was just a misunderstanding."

There's no mistaking why the Hoosiers are interested in the 6-foot-5, 280 pound Davis, though. With a great frame, strength, and quickness, Davis has proven himself adept in the trenches. This past season he started on both sides of the ball for his team, playing defensive tackle and offensive tackle.

"My coach tells me to keep on running, because I am going to be starting on both sides of the ball this year, too," said Davis. "I was at right tackle last year because we had a left-handed quarterback, but they switched me over to left tackle this year because we have a right-handed quarterback this year."

The Hoosiers have offered Davis with the intent of him playing on the offensive line, but did tell him they were interested in seeing him in action on the defensive line as well. They hope to do that when he returns to campus this summer, something that Davis plans to do since his first trip to Bloomington went so well.

"I loved it when I went up there," said Davis. "I could definitely see myself playing there."

"Actually I got to talk with Coach Wilson quite a bit throughout the whole visit. He's a very cool coach with a very nice staff. I'm looking forward to getting to know them all a little better. I will definitely be going to their camp this summer."

Davis says he will also make trips to Michigan and Wisconsin this summer, two schools he is very high on right now. Those schools and Indiana are the only visits he's certain of right now, but he is considering other stops as well. He currently holds over a dozen offers with Indiana, South Florida, Cincinnati, Louisville, Ball State, Florida International being key among them he says. This summer will be about trying to add more offers he says.

"Michigan and Wisconsin are pretty high on my list," said Davis. "Some other schools have been in recently, too, like Syracuse, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Georgia Tech, and Duke."
