D.J. DAVIS, DB, 6'0, 188, 4.37, FT. WORTH, TEXAS (DUNBAR HS):
The more people watch D.J. Davis the more they like him. He is a fantastic athlete who can play on either side of the ball, but it looks like he will be a defensive back in college.
"I have played quarterback, free safety and running back at Dunbar, but I think I will be a defensive back in college," said Davis. "Defensive back is where I really like to play. I start at free safety, but if we are playing against a great receiver I move over to cornerback and match-up with him."
Davis picked off two passes on defense and expects to grab more this year. Davis went to Texas A&M this past weekend to meet Coach Franchione and the other assistants, and to take a look around. Davis can bench 285 pounds, squats 455 and he has a 38-inch vertical jump.
Davis has been offered by 15 schools at this time and he is still keeping an open mind.
"I keep thinking that I may get some schools to offer me that are not offering me at this time, so I am keeping my options open," said Davis. "I am thinking about Penn State, because they have been sending me letters since I was a freshman and everybody I talk to tells me that they have a great program. Oklahoma and Oklahoma State have offered me and everybody is saying great things about Coach (Bob) Stoops and OU. Everybody tells me that OU is a factory for the League (NFL). Again, I am trying to keep an open mind and really have a number of schools that I am considering."
