"To me, it's always been like that," Davis said. "Nothing changed. We just need other guys to step it up."
Darrell Davis, whose team is currently 1-2, has stepped it up on both sides of the ball so far this season. He has 15 receptions for 280 yards and two scores. Defensively, he's already picked off four passes playing safety.
"My blocking ability is what separates me on offense," he said. "I like to be real physical and help with the running game. A lot of guys don't think that's important enough. Defensively, I just wanna be known as tough, hard-nosed player."
Davis, a full academic qualifier, didn't start playing football until his sophomore season. He was ready to begin as a freshman but a broken arm ended that idea. He's been getting better and better ever since and has emerged into one of the state's top wideout prospects.
"Recruiting's going real good," he said. "It's like a fantasy right now. I got so many schools wanting me to take visits that I'll have some nice options."
Davis will likely stay in Florida to play his college ball.
"The only out of state program I'm really looking at right now is South Carolina," he said. "They've got a real nice team and I may check it out up there. Down here, I like Florida State, South Florida, and Central Florida."
The talented receiver, 6-4 and 205 pounds, is also hearing from Miami and Florida.
"The four I mentioned earlier have already offered but Miami and Florida havent," he said. "It seems like they're not coming after me as hard as the others. Miami did call the first day (Sept 1) though to check on me and stuff."
Davis, who says he grew up a big FSU fan, watched the Noles and Canes earlier this month and had some interesting comments.
"I used to play basketball with Drew (Weatherford) so I'm glad to see him do well and win," he said. "I'm a big FSU fan, a diehard, so I'm glad they won. The second and third quarter was kinda vanilla though on offense, almost like a scrimmage."
What if the Hurricanes were to pick up the heat and perhaps offer a scholarship to Davis?
"That would be great," he said. "It's Miami. They're always a good team. It's just that I have more interest in the other schools right now."
