Jon Davis, a 6-foot-3, 233-pound tight end prospect, is one of the best players in the country at his position. With him being one of the top players, it's clear that the top schools will come in and try to make a play for him, regardless of his previous commitment to Kentucky.
Davis decided to take in a game in Eugene to see then-number-one rated Oregon as they took on the Arizona Wildcats. Davis got a chance to see the facilities that all recruits rave about after the visit ends.
"I told the coaches that they have a lot to offer," said Reggie Davis, father of four-star prospect, Jon Davis. "The style of football looks exactly like what he wants to do and how he wants to play," Davis continued.
However Joker Phillips is offering a similar opportunity to Davis.
"UK offers the same thing," said Davis. "Joker says they haven't seen it because they need the athletes to be able to do that."
The style that Davis speaks of is lining up the tight end out wide and letting him play in space.
Mr. Davis informed the Kentucky staff that nothing has changed. Jon is still committed to Kentucky. The Wildcats will have coaches in Davis's Louisville home tomorrow to try and solidify Jon's commitment.
"Joker, (Greg) Nord and (David) Turner are supposed to visit. If not Joker, at least one other coach will be there," Davis continued.
Phillips has endeared himself to Davis and has recruited Jon for a long time. There's one quality about the Kentucky coach that has stood out for the elder Davis.
"He definitely wants to do what is best for Jon," said Davis. "He wants to do right by Jon and that gives him credibility," Davis finished.
The family will let Jon sit back and think about his visit to Oregon and contemplate the pros and cons and hopefully a solid decision will come in the near future.
Meanwhile Jon will prepare to play some basketball for Eastern. Their season starts tomorrow night.
