Focus 2010: Davis Close to a Commitment?

The "Lone Star State" will feature a number of top wide receiver recruits in the class of 2010, and a number of players have started to make their case for the overall number one ranking at the position. But no top receiver list will be complete without Mike Davis' name, and he could be close to securing a big offer.

Junior Mike Davis, a 6-foot-2, 175-pound wide receiver from Skyline High in Dallas, Texas is a talented prospect who has gotten off to a quick start this season.

"It has been good so far this year," Davis began. "We are still getting better day-by-day and we are still learning every game and we are just out there making plays. We are 3-0."

"I have been playing good. My first game against Kimball I really had nine balls for 100-something yards, but some of them got called back, so I had five catches for like 60 yards. My second game against Arlington Bowie I got Big Game of the Week, and it was on T.V. and I had seven catches for 141 yards and three touchdowns."

"I run good routes, I catch the ball, and I got the speed to run past the defenders; I just make plays," Davis informed.

"I like a little but of T.O., Chad Johnson, Randy Moss, Marvin Harrison, a little Steve Smith, and I like Brandon Marshall. And in college I like the receiver from Georgia (A.J. Green). I watch them to try to increase my game."

Davis is starting to receive some college attention. He could be closing in on a big scholarship offer from the Oklahoma Sooners, and it looks like an offer from OU would be one that he will eventually accept.

"It has been going good," Davis said of the recruiting process. "Mostly all of the colleges are asking about me now and Oklahoma they are kind of getting ready to offer me scholarship."

"They just like me or whatever. They like everything about me. They are really interested in me and stuff (like that). When the offer rolls in they asked me if I am going to take it, and I told them yeah, because I like OU."

Davis also has some interest in a few other programs, but he would prefer to stay closer to home.

"I like some other schools like Clemson, Alabama, and Georgia, but they are kind of far out. I want to be close to home."

"They (OU) have invited me to the Texas/Oklahoma game, and I have been talking to one of the coaches. We are building a strong relationship."

Scouting Notes- Davis is a guy that I have already had the chance to see play in person. He was the biggest weapon on the team's offense. In one-on-one situations he is awfully tough to guard. He runs crisp routes and has the "it" factor when making plays on the ball in the air. He will need to add some size and strength to get of the ball in college, but he has plenty of toughness. He is not the type to back down from a challenge and he will play even if he is hurting.
