ISU in Hunt for Houston area DE

In the need for a few defensive ends in this year's recruiting class, Iowa State is in the mix with a top player in the Houston area.

Clear Creek High defensive end Bruce Davis said he has 10 scholarship offers to date, including one from the Cyclones.

He is currently entertaining interest from UCLA, TCU, Iowa, Kansas State, Texas A&M, Texas, Arkansas and a number of other top programs, but it may be a while before Davis makes a decision.

"I think I'm going to try to wait until my season is over (for official visits)," he told Cyclone Nation Thursday night. "I haven't really been thinking about that much. I've been really concentrating on my season.

"I want to check out as much as I can. I want to go see what everybody has to offer and talk to a few more coaches. I've got a lot to think about. After our season and playoffs are over and after I get the chance to see and talk to everybody, I'll make my decision."

Will Ames be a destination for him once he starts taking official visits? It's a good possibility.

"I like Iowa State," he said. "They're up in my running. They're getting their name out there by playing these big teams and that's what you've got to do to be realized. The defense they run seems to fit me well. I like what I've seen so far. I like the way their guys run to the ball. They seem to be coached really well. Whenever they play it seems like they're all on the same page and I really like that."

The 6-foot-3, 240-pound Davis has made 38 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, seven sacks and four pass deflections this season for Clear Creek.

He could potentially play both defensive end spots in college.

"I'm a great pass rusher, but can also sit in there and play the run," he said. "I'm more of a rush end, but can stop the run, make tackles for loss and hold up a tackle and a tight end. I feel that I'm a complete defensive end with good pass rushing ability."
