I'm not sure how I missed him, but I did. When I was in San Antonio covering the combine I was walking through the drills watching the players compete but some how I missed Anthony Davis (6-6 325-pounds).
"I was there," Davis said when asked if he had made it to the combine. "I worked out at tackle and guard. Only one kid got up field, but nobody beat me."
I may have missed him that day, but I was the only one, as Davis was later named to the all-combine team. College recruiters certainly won't miss him either as Anthony is already being recruited by the top schools from around the country.
"Texas, Rutgers, Notre Dame, Boston College, PSU and a bunch of others schools," Davis replied when asked which schools he had interest in. "I'm getting mail from them all. Rutgers, Boston College Virginia, WVU, and Illinois have offered.
"Yep," Davis confirmed when asked if he had interest in Notre Dame. "I just started following them this year. They've sent letters but that's about it."
There certainly is a unique blend of schools that Anthony likes so I asked him what he liked about a couple of his favorites.
Notre Dame: "I like their tradition and coach Weis is a good coach."
Texas: "I like that they play aggressive. They seem family oriented and they won the national championship… other than that not a lot."
Rutgers: "They have a good offensive line coach, and strength and conditioning coach, coach Butler. They have one of the best weight rooms in the nation."
Davis plays both sides of the ball for Piscataway Township, and it appears in the early stages of the recruiting coaches haven't decided where Anthony will play in college.
"Both offensive tackle and defensive tackle," Davis responded when asked the position schools were recruiting him to play. "I play both, but it doesn't matter to me. Whatever the team needs me to do."
"Hitting people," he said when asked what he liked most about offensive line. "I'm good at both pass and run blocking, but I'm probably a better run blocker because of my aggressiveness. I like getting off the defensive line and chasing down safeties."
