East Coast DB Gets NU Offer

Nebraska continues to scour the country for the finest defensive athletes they can and have recently offered a young man from the East Coast who has garnered a lot of attention thus far. Just who is this prospect, how did he react to the Nebraska offer and where does said offer put Nebraska on his list of favorites?

Greg Davis fits a pretty solid safety mold standing 6' 1" and weighing in at 181 pounds as a high school junior.  It's his size and his other physical abilities that netted him an offer from the Nebraska Cornhuskers and have several other schools ready to follow suit.  So, now that Greg had offer number one in the bag, how is Davis feeling?  "I was excited, you know.  The first one is always the best one.  My coach called me a while ago and it looks like Maryland is going to offer me, but they haven't officially.  I'm going to talk to my coach tomorrow to see what's up with that," he said.  Davis also said that Boston College, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Kansas are looking to offer him soon.  "I know there will be more offers coming because everyone's liked my film and my physical abilities," he said.

With Nebraska's offer in his hands, the question arises about whether Davis is going to make it out to Lincoln in the near future, possibly at the Spring Game.  "My coach talked to me about that, I'm not really sure at this point, but I know I'm going to make sure that Nebraska is one of my five official visits.  I would like to see them play a game and everything and see how the crowd is," said Davis.  Greg also mentioned that he needs to talk to his coach regarding camps, but he would like to camp in Lincoln if at all possible.  With Virginia originally being Davis' favorite, where does Nebraska's offer put them on the leader board?   "I think now, they're up there with Virginia. Virginia was my number one but, now I'd say they're even," he said.

Davis was obviously very excited to get the first collegiate offer in the bag and we discussed some of the aspects about the University of Nebraska that he found particularly attractive.  "I know the DB coach, Coach Elmassian, he talked to me about how the football team has great academic support and that's a big thing.  I do want to get my degree while I play football," he said.  Davis mentioned that he has always wanted to open up his own business and has a multitude of ideas for a possible venture.  "I like the tradition of the defense, too," he said.  Davis also had a pledge for if he ended up a Cornhusker.  "I most definitely want to wear the black jersey, that's a promise right there," said Davis.  We'll continue to follow Greg throughout his senior season and all the way to Signing Day 2006.
