LSU offer in hand

Dallas Skyline wide receiver Mike Davis has had a busy couple of weeks, highlighted by a trip to Austin and more recently an offer extended by the Tigers. With LSU weighing heavy on the mind of the 6-foot-1, 175-pound prospect, things look good for the Bayou Bengals heading forward.

Last weekend, Davis and Skyline teammates Corey Nelson and Dominique Patterson took in one of the most exclusive weekends that the Lone Star State football scene sees each season: Texas Longhorns Junior Day.


Despite leaving without an offer, as Nelson remains the only Raider to hold one from UT, Davis is all smiles.


"It was cool and all, but it was not for me," he said. "It was my first time over there, so I expected big things. They have a good program, sure, but I was not blown away or anything."


Despite those sentiments, the weekend ended on a high note, seeing the 4-star wide receiver land an offer from a school that he least suspected.


"Coach Mac came by here a couple of weeks ago to invite me to junior day weekend, but none of us could make it with all the things going on," Davis said. "I didn't hear from him after that, so I just brushed it off. The next thing I knew he was back with an offer for me.


"It felt great," added Davis. "Like I said before, LSU was one offer I really wanted. I have been following the program for a while, and I really like everything I have seen. I could do big things in the spread attack, and LSU also has the tradition I am looking for. I want to make that same impact guys like [Dwayne] Bowe did when they played."


High praises for the Tiger program, which Davis said now sits alongside a Big 12 school as the frontrunners for his services.


"LSU and Oklahoma are my two favorites," he said. "Toss in Notre Dame and Texas Tech, because they are both on me really hard, too. I want to look into some more things about each school, but my main focus right now is on the Tigers and Sooners. I am not in a rush to make a decision, so I am going to fall back and just feel things out."


Davis, one of the top receivers in Texas, finished the season with 58 catches for 1,138 yards and 16 touchdowns.


Note: Davis holds offers from Notre Dame, Nebraska, Iowa, Iowa State, Texas A&M, Wisconsin, Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Stanford, California, Texas Tech, LSU and Oklahoma.
