Davis Reflects On Oklahoma Visit

Top Ohio wide receiver prospect enjoys official visit to Oklahoma for UCLA game.

Toledo Rogers wide receiver Fred Davis made his first official visit over the weekend, traveling to Oklahoma to take in the UCLA game.

Davis (6-4, 210) is ranked as Ohio's No. 2 overall prospect by Ohio's Future Stars and as the country's No. 3 wide receiver prospect by TheInsiders.com.

"It went pretty well," Davis said of his visit. "The players, the school, the coaches, everything was nice. The campus was nice, too."

Davis said he enjoyed a chance to get to know OU coach Bob Stoops.

"He is a pretty nice coach and a cool guy," Davis said. "He keeps it real and tells the truth about everything."

Davis said he enjoyed spending time with OU wide receiver Mark Clayton during the visit.

As things stand, Davis does not have any other visits scheduled.

"I don't have any other visits set now," he said. "But I will probably visit Ohio State either this weekend or next weekend. I may make the visit for the following weekend when they don't have a game. That might go better, but I'll still probably come down to the (Northwestern) game this weekend."

When asked who else he was considering, Davis said, "USC and Miami (Fla.). I also want to visit each of them. I pretty much don't have a fifth one at this time."

When asked if Ohio State was still at or near the top of his list, Davis said, "They are up there, definitely. Oklahoma has given me a little bit to think about."

Davis had no news to share on the announcement Wednesday by his friend, Huber Heights (Ohio) Wayne linebacker Marcus Freeman.

"He talked to me, but he said he would let me find out when everybody else does," Davis said.

Freeman will make his decision during a press conference at his school to announce his selection for the All-American Bowl in January. Davis had a similar press conference at his school Monday and Cleveland Glenville's Ted Ginn Jr., also a friend of Davis' and Freeman's, will have his ceremony on Tuesday.

"It will be cool that we will all play together in that game," Davis said. "Hopefully, we will all play together in college."

Davis admits he would like to graduate from high school a semester early so he can enroll at his college of choice in time for the winter term.

Last year, he split time between wide receiver and running back. He carried for over 1,100 yards and made 50 catches for 790 yards. He accounted for 26 touchdowns on offense and also made 80 tackles and had two interceptions on defense.

This year, Rogers has struggled to a 2-3 start.

"I'm doing pretty good, I guess," Davis said. "We've had a lot of players injured and we've had to play a lot of young guys. It's been really hard, but I've still scored like nine touchdowns already this year. I have a lot of yards rushing and receiving and I've even played some at quarterback, too."
