On Wednesday, Missouri extended a scholarship offer to 2015 slot receiver prospect Ryan Davis 6’0” 170 St. Petersburg (FL) Lakewood. Afterwards, Davis took a few minutes to speak with ShowMeMizzou.com, and he talked about his Missouri offer, his interest in Missouri, and he updated us on the current status of his recruitment.
“Missouri’s a big SEC offer,” said Davis. “I’ve been in contact with Coach Brian Jones. He took all of my stuff back to Missouri, and they all looked at my video and everything. Missouri said that they’re offering me, they love me, and that they want me to come in and play right now.”
Davis reported currently holding “like thirty-two offers”, including offers from Arizona, Florida, Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Florida State, Iowa State, Kentucky, Marshall, Maryland, Miami, Michigan State, Mississippi State, North Carolina State, Nebraska, Ohio State, South Florida, Syracuse, Tennessee, Texas Tech, Toledo, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, Washington State, West Virginia, and Wisconsin, among others, in addition to Missouri.
Davis plays in the backfield, mostly at QB, for Lakewood, but he said that everyone is recruiting him to play slot receiver in college.
“There’s a lot of schools that stand out,” said Davis, unwilling to name any favorites.
Davis said that he had a sore hamstring when he recently ran a 4.48-second 40-yard dash. But earlier this spring, he was timed at 4.37 second in the forty, to go along with personal bests of 38” in the standing vertical jump, a 3.9-second 5-10-5 shuttle, and a 9’11” standing broad jump.
Davis said that he is somewhat familiar with Missouri, having watched the Tigers over the past several years.
“I know that Missouri is doing pretty well in the SEC,” said Davis, who said that he’s planning to visit Missouri this summer.
“That’s the plan,” said Davis, referring to a summertime visit to Missouri. “We’re going to work on that.”
Davis said that he wasn’t sure about a decision timetable, but he said that it would likely be after he takes his official visits, probably after the season.
