Anything is possible with Davis

The summer is coming to a close and soon recruits will have to start narrowing their lists and setting up official visits. Darrell Davis is looking very seriously at a top seven right now and even has five schools pegged as possible schools for official visits. Can Nebraska get an official visit?

Darrell Davis knows how the summer goes. It is a space in between spring practice and fall practice. He is pretty much busy all year round focusing on football. This summer was nothing but football for the receiver from Dade City (Flor.) Pasco.

"It's going pretty good," Davis said. "I have been working on getting stronger and running routes. We have a summer conditioning program on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and after that is over with we go outside and play seven on seven and do agility drills."

The 6-foot-5 and 195 pound Davis is into double-digit offers, but has narrowed things down a little bit already to a top seven. Although Davis has a top seven in mind he maintains that he is still open and isn't ready to divulge who that top seven is.

"I'm up to 12 offers right now. I've narrowed things down to seven real serious prospects. The door is still open right now. I don't want to say who the top seven is right now because nothing is in stone."

When it comes to picking out a school Davis is looking at academics first and foremost. After that he wants to be sure that he will fits the type of system at that school and also what position a school might be recruiting him as.

"The main thing is the academic system and academic support. After that is the coaching style, philosophy and type of offense at a school. The third thing is what position I will be playing."

"Some schools are recruiting me as a possible outside linebacker or strong safety and some others are saying strong safety. Other schools are saying wide receiver. I prefer to play wide receiver if a team needs me to play another position then it's up to the coaches."

Davis doesn't have any firm plans or dates yet to make any official visits, but he has an idea of which schools he would officially visit today.

"I don't have anything set up yet, but I have an understanding of some of the schools that I would like to officially visit. The first official would be to South Carolina, then USF, Florida, Florida State and North Carolina."

All of those schools seem relatively close to Davis so is distance a big thing? "It's pretty big, but anything could happen. I am pretty fixed on staying in the South right now."

As of right now Nebraska appears to be on the outside looking in to get considered for an official visit. The offer from Nebraska though is keeping the door open.

"Anything can change. I could go up there and fall in love in everything up there. Coach Randy Jordan is a great guy. Coach Callahan is familiar with the NFL. Anything is possible, the door is still open."
