After committing to Colorado Davyon McGhee thought he was through recruiting, saying he could see himself at Colorado, he could see himself playing in their uni’s. That was before Coach Prince and staff started recruiting him- and barring some unforeseen event, Davyon says his is committed to Kansas State and will take his official visit to Manhattan this weekend.
“I am done. I am done with recruiting. I am going to Kansas State. When I called Coach Prince to let him know he was so happy. He told me he wanted to hear my best Wildcat roar so you know I had to give him one of those, I had to break out with that. I think I did pretty good for my first time, I might have to work on it some more- but I will have time to do that,” McGhee told KStateFans.
“I called Coach Cabral, you know the linebacker coach for Colorado. Me and him we called each other all the time and talked and everything. I believe it was when I committed on Sunday to K-State, I called him you know and tried to get a hold of him. He did not pick up so I left him a voice message to call me and to let him know (about his commitment to K-State) and he has not called me back ever since. He has not even called me back.”
Heading to Kansas State this weekend to take his official visit, Davyon says he is excited to play under the defense that Coach Morris will be bringing with him from Tampa.
“When Coach Morris started talking to me about that Tampa defense he got my attention, yes sir. Right away he had my attention. He told me that with my size and speed that I fit into their defense and that I can be a really great playmaker for them and that I can play early too. He just told me that he wants me to play mike or will linebacker and I am ready for that.”
“About three weeks ago Coach Jones called me and he told me that he was going to be coming out to see me. He asked me how my recruiting was going and everything and that they were very interested in me and all this and that. Then Coach Morris told me that the first time he saw me film he fell in love with me….he told me that I have the right size and speed to play in his defense and they have pretty much been with me all of January. Coach Morris, man I am excited about what he brings to the table,” said the 5-foot-11, 221 pound blue chip.
Already qualified, McGhee says he is looking forward to visiting Manhattan this weekend and getting to know the other players and coaches better.
