Davis To Focus On Football?

The question has never been whether or not Nate Davis could play football at a major Division I-A college program, but whether or not he would play football. The three-sport star has in the past been said to favor basketball, but he may now be looking more towards a career on the gridiron. Duane Long has more.

Bellaire's Nate Davis might be Ohio's best three-sport star and one of the state's top overall athletes, but the question of what sport Davis would play in college has always lingered. It originally seemed like Davis might be leaning towards basketball, but he informed Bucknuts recently that it looks like his sport of choice may be football.

"Yeah, it looks like it," Davis said. "I've been thinking about it for a while."

Davis said he planned to play AAU basketball this spring but has been playing baseball. He had hit two home runs in four games. He seems to be thinking about focusing on just one sport in college.

"If I change my mind, I will only be playing one sport," he said. "You just can't excel if you try to divide your time like that."

Davis plans on camping at Ohio State and West Virginia this summer.

"I don't know about any others right now," he said.

When will Davis be making a decision?

"I'm going to wait," he said. "I'm really just starting to look into this as far as football's concerned."

Davis says he is looking to major in special education and says academics will have everything to do with his final decision.

"I'm all set grade-wise," he said.
