Louisville has enjoyed recruiting success in Cincinnati the past few years, and Charlie Strong's Cardinals recently offered another Cincinnati-area standout - Terry Davis, a 6-foot-5, 285-pound lineman from Wyoming (OH) High.

"I got the offer last week and it was unexpected," Davis said. "I haven't talked to them that much, but it was exciting. They like my foot speed and quickness and my ability to get my hands on the defender and keep him away from the quarterback. I think it's a nice place and I'm going to try to take a visit down there as soon as possible."

Davis holds three BCS offers from Louisville, Indiana and USF. Akron, Ball State, Bowling Green, Florida International, Kent State, Ohio and Toledo also have extended offers. Programs like Michigan and West Virginia are showing interest.

"The schools that are standing out to me I'd have to say are Wisconsin, IU, Michigan, Louisville, USF and Pittsburgh," said Davis. "I've visited Michigan and Indiana out of those schools."

Davis plans to take most of his visits this summer. Some of the schools recruiting him like him as an offensive line prospect; others think he could become a solid defensive lineman at the next level. Davis says he doesn't really have a preference which position he plays in college.

"I like defense but I wouldn't mind [playing] offense," Davis said. "I didn't allow any sacks and my quarterback passed for more than 3,000 yards so that's a big accomplishment for the o-line."

"The biggest thing I'm looking for in a school is great academics," Davis added. "The school I go to has to have a great academic program and football program.
