Davis is one of the Lone Star State's best

One of the top prospects in the Lone Star State for 2010, wide receiver Mike Davis said that he had hoped to hear from LSU at some point in his recruitment. This week, the Tiger staff stopped by Skyline High to tell the junior standout that they want him in Baton Rouge this weekend for junior day.

"Coach Mac came by the school and picked up some of our film," said Skyline's Mike Davis. "He talked with our coach and told him that he wanted to see us at LSU this weekend for junior day. He let us know that he was ready to talk with us, and that he has heard big things.


"If we can get down there then we will be riding with Corey Nelson, who already has an LSU offer," added Davis. "LSU is looking at another one of our teammates, Dominique Patterson, as well. We all have pretty high interest."


Davis said that the Tiger coaching staff has already made an impression on him.


"I really like coach Mac," he said. "I called him on the phone, and he was asking me to come down and see the campus. He talked about academics and their style of play, and what they're trying to do. I am just looking forward to meeting the rest of the coaches and players this weekend."


While the 4-star wide receiver already holds 12 offers, there is one that he admits that has been waiting on.


"That LSU offer is the one that I want," Davis said. "I have been watching the Tigers for a long time. The tradition is big time. I also like the spread offense that they run. I am a big time impact player, so I am going to be able to make it happen on whatever team I go to. I just feel like I am more effective when the offense spreads the field out."


The 6-foot-2, 180-pound Dallas-native said that he hopes to emulate a couple of ex-Tigers when he gets into the college ranks.


"I want to make it happen like Early Doucet, Dwayne Bowe and the other wide receivers they put in the league," Davis said. "I am going to college to break records, just like they did. I make big plays, I have good technique, I have speed to separate myself and I go get the fade in the red zone. I can make things happen.


"I am lifting weights and getting bigger, but really I got that locked down because I've got good size. I just need a little more strength and I will be good to go."


Davis said that though an invite was extended, he remains up in the air as to if he will attend Texas' Junior Day on Feb. 8.


Davis finished the season with 58 catches for 1,138 yards and 16 touchdowns.


He currently holds offer from Notre Dame, Nebraska, Iowa, Iowa State, Texas A&M, Wisconsin, Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Stanford and California.


With a stacked plate, the junior prospect said that he has no plans to shut things down early.


"I'm going to take my time and take visits and go through the process," Davis said. "I'm going to be looking at graduation rates and academics, campus life and tradition. Playing time is important but I wouldn't have a problem redshirting. Distance doesn't matter, either."
