Danny Davis talks Michigan, Recruitment

Springfield (Ohio.) junior wide receiver Danny Davis discusses his thoughts on the Wolverines, what a Michigan would mean, the latest in his recruitment and more.

On the first day of Michigan and Jim Harbaugh’s satellite tour, several members of the Wolverine coaching staff traveled to two camps. The morning camp coming from Indianapolis (Ind.) Bishop Chatard High School to a few hours later at Springfield (Ohio.) High School for the second camp.

One of the top performers at Springfield’s camp was their very own in junior wide receiver Danny Davis, who came to display his athletic ability, crisp routes and getting in and out of his cuts.

Despite not picking up that coveted Wolverine offer, the four-star prospect hopes to still work on landing it, especially knowing a few of his close friends are committed there.

“I have talked to Michigan a couple times, but we haven’t really been like (talking) that,” Davis told The Michigan Insider. “I know Leonard Taylor and Antwuan Johnson are my boys, but I have no offer from there yet, so we will like to see what happens.


That would mean a lot (if Michigan offered). I have a lot right now, so we will see what happens, but that still is a big offer. Michigan is Michigan, so that would be a big offer.”

The 6-foot-1, 170-pound Davis holds over double-digit offers including a few on the hardwood as well, but what interests him about the Wolverines? The headman himself, Jim Harbaugh.

“Of course, Harbaugh,” said Davis. “He’s different and not like all the other coaches, so I like that. I like that about Michigan.

The switch from Adidas to Jordan gear next season is also very appealing to Davis too.

“Yeah, I am a Jordan fan, who isn't?” said Davis. “I mean most don’t like to say it, but it comes to mind in every high school player (mind), who thinks about the gear.”

Having been to Ann Arbor once before, Davis really enjoyed his time and hopes to make it out for another visit.

I’m not too familiar (with Michigan), but I know I went up last summer and I had a nice time,” said Davis. “It was cool. I actually got to stay on the field and it gave me chills. There was nobody there and I still got chills. I would love to get to a game or something, so we will see what happens with that.”

Right now, Scout’s No. 214 overall rated recruit has no top list at the moment, but looks to narrow down his list of suitors soon and has the few factors he’s taking into consideration.

“Probably sometime after the season,” said Davis of making a top list. “Education first of all and it is always there after football. Of course, that. Of course the offense though and if it fits my system.”

Davis is currently hearing the most from Michigan State, Penn State, West Virginia, Missouri, and Oregon
