Mizzou Picks Up Surprise Commit from Tex. OL
Davis is a 6-foot-4, 270-pound left tackle at Prestonwood Chrstian High School in Plano, Tex. He also had been receiving plenty of interest from Kansas, Iowa State, Utah and, of course, Tulsa.
The coaches at Tulsa were disappointed, he said, "but they wanted me to be happy."
Missouri assistant coach Bruce Walker, his primary recruiter at MU, was happy was well.
"I don't know if he was surprised, but he was very excited," Davis said.
Davis could play anywhere on the line at MU. He has excellent footwork and thrives in pass protection. He also plays in a system quite similar to MU's spread attack.
"I've got good footwork and I like to pack a powerful punch to shock the defensive lineman," he said.
Davis, also a good student, plans to major in business and would like to get into sports management. He'll visit MU in the fall for a game or two, but now he'll focus on his high school season while knowing he's done what his heart was telling him to do.
"They're a top team," he said. "Ever since I visited, I really felt like it was the best place for me."
