Davis Curious About OU

George Washington wide receiver Keenan Davis is one of the best at his position. He holds nearly a dozen scholarships offers, but was only able to make one junior day this off-season. Plenty of Division One coaches are out and about to check him out in person. So who leads for Davis and where is he planning to go this summer? Scout.com talked with Davis for this update…

It seems the class if 2009 is loaded with plenty of big targets at the wide out position and George Washington (IA) high school athlete Keenan Davis is one of them. With more than 10 offers in hand, the 6-foot-3, 195-pound Davis is carefully receiving all of his options before ultimately making the final decision.

"Right now I have offers from Arizona State, Cincinnati, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, and Minnesota," Davis said. "I have no favorites right now and the only junior day I have been to is Iowa."

But no worries for Davis as coaches have been coming by to see his coach all off-season. Even though he does not know what schools in particular he plans to visit over the next couple of months, Davis is in the process of making his list.

"I don't know what my summer schedule is going to be. I need to sit down with my parents and high school coach and figure everything out," Davis said.

With Oklahoma, Davis looks to make more contact to see where things stand with his recruitment. 

"I have had an offer from them (Oklahoma) for about two months now," Davis said. "Lately, it has just been letters and emails exchanged between us. When I make my schedule, I will try and make it down there, but I don't know yet."

Despite Davis not knowing much about the program, he said he would like to know more. Besides watching them play on television, Davis admits he does not know much about the school itself.

"With OU, I have really only watched them on TV a few times, but just like many other schools that have offered me, I don't know a lot about them," Davis said. "All I know is that they have offered me and I get a lot of personal letters from them. I really should try again to get in touch with them. I'm curious and want to know more."

As far as his playing style, Davis describes himself as an "aggressive-type" player who really gets after it. This, along with leadership capabilities, is what he thinks has attracted all of these Division I coaches.

And, according to Davis, his high school coach agrees.

"My coach told me that I am a very good leader who gives the most effort I can on every play," Davis said. "This off season I am trying to get much better and I try and make the most of every opportunity."

In his junior season at George Washington, Davis had 81 catches for 1,160 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also had one touchdown rushing and scored twice on special teams as a punt returner.
