At 6-foot-6 and 220-pounds it's no wonder why a lot of people are keeping tabs on Andrew Davis. Davis, a tight end at Council Bluffs (Iowa) Iowa Western C.C., said he wasn't sure how many schools were by this week. He just knew it was a lot.
"I really don't know all of the schools that have been here for sure," Davis said. "I know that Kansas, Noth Texas, Iowa State, Nebraska, TCU and some others have been here. It was interesting that Nebraska was here. I haven't heard from them before this week."
The offer count is still holding at two for Davis, but that could go up soon. He thinks that a MAC school might be the next to offer based on the attention that he has been receiving from them recently.
"I still have the two offers from Texas and Illinois. I think that Miami-Ohio is close to offering. They have been showing me the most attention and seem the most interested of the schools that haven't offered me yet."
The junior college route that has led to him being put on scholarship at IWCC and now has him picking up D-I offers might have been a blessing in disguise. Out of high school his best option might have been to walk-on at an in-state school.
"I failed to qualify out of high school," said Davis. "I graduated from Marion (Iowa) in 2013 and was a point shy on my ACT. I didn't know where I was going to go anyway because I was slowed up by an injury my senior year. I likely would have walked on at Iowa State."
It's not clear to Davis what kind of interest Nebraska might have in him. He only knows that Nebraska would be an interesting offer and he would like to visit. He also went on to say that his dream offense has his position less tight next to the tackle and more standing up out wide.
"I would definitely consider them and I would want to take a visit to Nebraska." - Andrew Davis said about a potential Nebraska offer
"My dream school is a team that has a standup tight end that flexes out a lot. I can line up next to the tackle though too and block, but my dream offense is flexed out."
