Davis talks commitment

LSU fans were hoping for some good news with the Tigers holding their second junior day of the year. Those fans were not disappointed as Texas wide receiver Mike Davis pulled a big surprise and committed to Les Miles on Saturday.

Mike Davis drove to Baton Rouge with plans of checking out a program that he held in high regard. Of course, the six-foot-one, 175-pound wide receiver left a Tiger.


"I committed and it felt awesome," Davis said. "Coach Les Miles and coach [DJ] McCarthy just pulled me into their office and told me that they loved everything that they had seen in me and wanted me to be a part of the program. It didn't take me long to let them know I felt the same way, and we went ahead and closed it down and I became a Tiger."


Marking the third commitment within a two hour period on Saturday evening, Davis said that he could not be happier with his decision.


"I have so much weight off my shoulders, so that is the main thing that feels amazing," he said. "I knew I wanted to be a part of the program here, so after I got over here and saw everything up close I had to let them know that I was coming to LSU."


Becoming the first receiver in the 2010 class to send his commitment to the Tigers, Davis said that he is ready to see what the future holds in purple and gold.


"I couldn't be in a better place right now, so everybody was really happy for me," he said. "Russell Shepard was here for a good bit, so seeing him gets me excited to get out there. Just knowing that I will be surrounded by the best talent in the nation makes me feel really comfortable, because I am at my best when the people around me are better than me. It makes me work that much harder."


Heading back to Dallas a Tiger, Davis said that he will now turn his focus to building the nation's top recruiting class.


"This class will be the best in the country, so I am going to get out there and let people know that we are making it happen at LSU," he said. "The coaches and facilities here are the best, so who wouldn't want to be a part of the program?"
