The four-star tight end from Eastern HS expressed concern about the Wildcats situation at his position Monday night after the Eagles win against Boone County at the King of the Bluegrass Holiday Classic.
"The tight end situation at Kentucky, just the numbers have me a little shaky," Davis said. "There are a lot of young freshman redshirts. I think there are seven."
Numbers aren't a problem at Louisville. The Cardinals lose starting tight end Cameron Graham and backup Pete Nochta after this season and would have an opportunity for Davis to play right away as a freshman next season.
"As far as Louisville, what sparks my interest is they have two senior tight ends leaving," Davis said. "I feel like if I were to go there I could step in and contribute."
Davis said he took note of five-star quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's commitment to Louisville on Monday. He also said he liked that the Cardinals threw often to the tight end this season. Graham led Louisville in receptions and receiving yards, and also scored four touchdowns.
"I noticed he caught a lot of balls and touchdowns," said Davis, Scout.com's No. 7-rated tight end in the nation. "I liked that."
Davis said he talks with Vance Bedford from time to time and feels his bond with the Louisville assistant is getting stronger.
"It's a work in progress," Davis said.
Davis, who has visited Oregon and Kentucky, hasn't scheduled any other official visits but plans to check out Louisville next month.
