Super WR Very High on UM

This talented wide receiver talks about why he likes the Hurricanes so much. Interestingly, the athletic director at his high school is the father of a recent UM great. Read on to find out what he's saying.

At 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, New Orleans (La.) O.P. Walker standout wide receiver Craig Davis has led his team to a 3-0 start this season by playing a number of positions.

"I've been all over the field," Davis said. "At wide receiver, I have 13 catches for 175 yards and two touchdowns. I've been playing quarterback the last two games and I have 260 yards and a couple touchdowns. I also have 40 yards rushing."

Davis, a full academic qualifier with an 18 ACT score, said recruiting is keeping him busy.

"I've been getting a lot of calls," he said. "I've talked to Miami, Florida, Tennessee, Clemson, Ole Miss, LSU, and a few more. They've all offered me except for Miami and I think they're real close."

Davis talked more about the Hurricanes.

"I'm looking deep into Miami right now," he said. "They wanted to see half of my senior season because last year was my only time playing wide receiver. They just wanted to see more tape. They call me every week. I like their style of play. I think I'm their type of receiver. They don't care who they play, when, where, or anything like that. That's how I am. I watched their game against Florida and they looked great."

In addition to the Hurricanes, the talented wide receiver is still considering five others.

"Miami's my top choice," he said. "If they don't offer, then Florida's in there too. I'm also looking at LSU, Clemson, Tennessee, and Colorado. The only trip I have set is LSU for December 6. I'll definitely visit Miami and Florida too."

The Hurricanes have another factor working in their favor, as Davis talked about it.

"Reggie Wayne is from this area and he had a great career at Miami," he said. "His father is actually the athletic director at our school. He's talking up Miami all the time. Like I said, I'm really into Miami right now."

Davis has a teammate, safety Darryl Johnson, who is also being actively recruited by Miami.

"Me and Darryl will most likely go to the same school," he said. "We both like Miami a lot right now. We've never been to Miami so we're looking forward to going there for a visit."
