Davis To Be Evaluated

Dublin (OH) wide receiver Marcus Davis impressed Northwestern coaches during their Wednesday camp, but did not pick up an offer just yet. The three-star receiver spoke with a few NU coaches and got some details on where he stands and what to expect.

"They're very interested and they said I had a great day," Marcus Davis said, referring to the NU coaches. "They were pretty impressed but they said they only have one more spot for a receiver and they want to evaluate."

Davis (5-10, 175) was making his second visit to Northwestern's campus on Wednesday, though the trip was an abbreviated one. He had to head back to Ohio on an afternoon flight.

However, Davis still had the opportunity to speak with Northwestern offensive coordinator Mick McCall, wide receivers coach Dennis Springer, and recruiting coordinator Matt MacPherson. Each of them expressed their interest in the wide receiver.

"It was definitely a good day," Davis said. "A lot of good competition, a smaller group, but overall I had a good day."

Davis was able to pick up some specific details as to when an offer from Northwestern could come.

"We talked about it and the coach said they're just going to reevaluate a couple receivers and make a decision," Davis said. "I should be hearing about it in the near future whether I'll get an offer or not."

After his second stop on campus, Davis still has strong interest in Northwestern and their football program.

"They're toward the top," he said. "I don't really have a top-three or top-five, but they're definitely up there."

So what would happen if Northwestern jumped in with an offer? Davis admitted, he's not sure how much higher the Wildcats' stock can rise.

"If I were to get an offer from Northwestern, I would be very interested and would give it strong consideration."
