Four Star WR Sets Visit to Manhattan

One of the top Wide Receivers int he country, this Colorado prospect has the Cats on his short list and has scheduled a visit to Manhattan....

One of Colorado's top skill position prospects has planned an official visit to Manhattan.

Wide receiver Drew Davis, a four-star prospect according to Scout.com, will visit Kansas State on December 9.

"Kansas State is one of the schools I will visit, so they are pretty high on my list right now," said Davis. "I'm also taking officials to Washington (Nov. 10), Oregon (Nov. 17) and UCLA (Dec. 1).

"In addition to those four schools I'm still very interested in Cal and Colorado. I haven't set up visits to those schools but I won't be making a decision until early December at the earliest. There's a lot to think about between now and then."

Denver (Co.) Montbello, Davis' high school squad, has posted a disappointing 1-7 record this season with one game remaining. With no hope of reaching the postseason Davis will turn his attention to recruiting in the very near future.

While Davis is still considering several schools, one in particular sticks out.

"I would say Washington is my favorite at this point," he explained. "I have a teammate up there and everything he says about the school and the football program are just great. I get the impression that my high school coach and Coach Willingham are a lot alike, which is a good thing.

"He never says anything negative about what goes on up there. That means a lot coming from someone I know and respect. That said, I'm going to visit other schools and give them the same chance I'm giving Washington."

Davis' visit to K-State will be particularly important as he is not too familiar with the school.

"I don't know too much about the school or football program, but I've heard some good things. I just thought it would be a good idea to go up there and see things for myself. I've been told they have a lot to offer academically and I know they have a good wide receivers coach. I'm looking forward to checking out the program and the area itself."

At 6-2 and 205 pounds Davis has great size for a wide receiver. He also runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds and has shown flashes of brilliance in the open field. How would he describe his game?

"I'm the guy who wants the ball at the end of the game. I'm not afraid of making a mistake or doing something wrong. I'm confident and I want to be in a position to help my team win games. I'll go over the middle and make a tough catch in traffic and I'll find a way to get open on third down. I'll never shy away from pressure."

Davis is rated the No. 32 wide receiver in the Class of 2007.
