Davis preparing for Summer

Avon High School's Charles Davis has a busy few months ahead of him. The talented running back is still on the hunt for his first offer and he's doing everything in his ability to make sure he gets it. BRZ recently sat down with him to catch up before he hits the road.

"Right now I'm probably hearing the most from Memphis, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Temple, Middle Tennessee and Clemson," Davis says. "West Virginia, Michigan State, Indiana and Miami (OH) are also talking to me some."

In just a few weeks the 5-8, 175 lb. Davis will get started on his Summer schedule with one goal in mind: earn an offer. Ideally, he'll end up with several in-hand, and with his combination of speed and vision that seems the more likely result.

"I think I'm going to around 12 or 13 camps," he says, before taking a second to count and finding the number to actually be 14. "I'm really excited to get up to Middle Tennessee, Temple and Ole Miss."

When asked why those three particular programs, Davis had this to say:

Middle Tennessee - I talk to Coach Coleman a lot and he seems down to earth and talks to me every week. I just want to do what I gotta do to get the offer on May 29 when I go up there.

Ole Miss - I like the weather, I like the coaches and I like the players. I talk to Coach Nix every week and I like him and what he brings to the table. It's also nice that it's in the SEC on the big stage.

Temple - I haven't been up there, yet but I will soon. I've been talking to the head coach a lot and Coach Frye and it seems like they're going to offer.

Davis maintains that he would prefer to play in a spread offense as it caters to his skillset, but he wouldn't mind playing in traditional I-form, which is the system he's in now. Apart from that, he'll be taking notice of the facilities, depth charts and coaching staffs of each school he visits this Summer.

"My last camp is July 30, and probably about the third game of the season I'll be committed if I have offers at that point," he says, stating his desire to choose his home earlier rather than later. "I'm banking on picking up a few this Summer though, so that should work."
