Farmington's Trey Davis Commits to Minnesota

Trey Davis, a 6-foot-2, 260-pound offensive lineman from Farmington (MN) High, has committed to Minnesota. Davis was named to the Minnesota Vikings All-State first-team All-Metro by KARE-11 TV and the Minneapolis Star Tribune. He was selected first-team by the Associated Press and was second-team All-State by the St. Paul Pioneer Press. GoldenSports.Net caught up with Davis to learn the latest on his commitment.

Trey Davis led Farmington to a 10-1 mark as a junior, losing to Eastview in Class 5A Section I championship game. The Tigers led the Metro area with an impressive 343 rushing yards per game.

Davis also throws the shot put and discus for the Farmington track and field team and recently set a school record in both events. Davis has made strong improvement in his throwing since last year. He finished sixth in the state meet with a shot toss of 54 feet and 1/2 inch. Davis did not make state in the discus, but did have a season-best throw of 153-11.

Davis told GoldenSports.Net that he committed Sunday to Gopher assistant coach Vic Adamle.

"There was no place else I wanted to go," Davis said.

Davis said that he plans on participating in both football and track and field at Minnesota.

"They will let me do both."

Davis did not attend the Gopher spring football game as he participated in an Austin track meet.

Davis said that the Gopher coaches are looking at both offensive and defensive line. Davis said that he does not have a preference.

"I like them both. Wherever they need me."

Davis said that the Gophers offered him a scholarship the first weekend in March.

Farmington head coach Mark Froehling said that Davis had only the offer from Minnesota, but that he expected that to change.

"We were in the process of sending out tapes to schools," Froehling said.

That will no longer be necessary as Davis became the sixth player to commit to Minnesota.
