Davis, MSU trade visits

After coming to East Lansing on Saturday, MSU coaches stopped by Cincinnati (Ohio) St. Xavier on Tuesday

Noah Davis has seen plenty of communication from Michigan State in the past few days.

First, the Cincinnati (Ohio) St. Xavier junior tight end visited East Lansing on Saturday and then a pair of coaches came to visit him at the school Tuesday.

He said the visit Saturday gave him an opportunity to talk with coaches, which is something more than he has found during visits elsewhere.

“You got to talk with the coaches a lot more than other one’s that I’ve been to,” Davis said. “They talked to you and actually like talked to you instead of shaking your hand and saying nice to meet you.”

Davis, who took in-season visits to Ohio State and Purdue, was making his first trip to East Lansing. He left with a good impression of how the Spartans use their tight ends.

“They not only really utilize them in the passing game,” Davie said, “they put them in the slot and also I like how they rotate them in and out so they are fresh every time they go in and you’re not just killing yourself. Everyone gets an equal chance to play and gets a share if they can handle it.”

On Tuesday, coaches Harlon Barnett and Jim Bollman came by St. Xavier to see Davis as well.

“I only met Coach Bollman when I went up, but he seems like an awesome guy and like I said, I like how he coaches tight ends,” Davis said. “Then Coach Barnett, I have been messaging him over Twitter and he seems like a great guy. I have been mainly in contact with coach DeAngelo Smith and he is awesome. I really like him. I like all of them.”

Davis already holds his first offer, which came from Purdue earlier in the fall. He said it was an awesome feeling to get the first one under his belt and from a coaching staff he likes.

”Coach Gerad Parker, he is the tight ends coach and the one that I talk to the most and the one who offered me. I like him a lot. He is a great guy and it was awesome they are willing to take a chance on me.”

Next up could be visits to a pair of schools that have been in touch lately.

“I’m hearing a little bit from Cincinnati and I will probably take a visit there because they are so close,” he said. “I’m also getting pretty decent looks from Kentucky so I might head down there as well.”

He also hopes to get back to East Lansing in the near future.

“Hopefully I can get back for another visit and I am planning on going up to their camp,” Davis said.
