Hoosiers aggressively pursuing Ohio twins

It's not often that college coaches get a chance at a package deal like this. The Hoosiers would be ecstatic to land just one Davis brother out of Austintown Fitch High School, but like seemingly every other program in the country, they're hoping to get both.

It's not often that college coaches get a chance at a package deal like this. The Hoosiers would be ecstatic to land just one Davis brother out of Austintown Fitch High School, but seemingly every program in the country is hoping to land both twins.

Demitrious Davis is a standout quarterback with amazing athleticism and speed. His brother Chris Davis is, naturally, his carbon copy playing slot receiver and cornerback. The twins currently have over 40 scholarship offers between them ranging from nearby schools like Akron and Toledo to faraway powers like Boise State and UCLA.

The Hoosiers offered earlier this year and certainly realize that the competition is stiff for the Davis twins' services. They have four Big Ten offers alone in addition to offers from every part of the country. The duo remains front and center in Coach Kevin Wilson's recruiting efforts.

"I've been talking to Coach Wilson a lot and the defensive coordinator a lot," said Chris Davis. "I've been talking to either one of them about once a week.

"They talk about how the program is going to turn around and they feel like they are going to have a good team in the next couple years."

Indiana's coaches have plenty of idea for both brothers and a mild tug-of-war is already breaking out over the talented athletes.

"They are recruiting me as an athlete," said Davis. "The defensive coordinator wants me to play defense and the offensive coordinator wants me to play slot receiver on offense."

Davis says he doesn't care which side wins the argument.

"I'll play anywhere just to get on the field the fastest," said Davis. "I just want to play. I like both sides of the ball. I think I can overpower people with my strength and my quickness and that's what I try to do."

The twins are staying busy this summer. They've already made a few trips and are trying to set up others.

"We want to go to the camps and see how the coaches coach and what they are really like," said Davis. "I want to get around them and meet all the staffs. So far I've been to the Pitt camp and the Toledo camp. I'm going to the West Virginia camp at the end of this month and probably Iowa. I'm not real sure about my other stops yet."

Indiana is certainly hoping to land a visit from the twins soon and are putting in the work to do so with constant contact. It remains to be seen if there work will pay off, but they remain in the running in the Davis twin lottery.

"I haven't eliminated anybody yet," said Davis. "We are going to make a lot of visits this summer and then start eliminating some schools."
