Quartney Davis, a 6-2, 190-pound wide receiver from Houston, TX, is a quiet youngster, but he perked up a little when talking about his visit to Ole Miss this weekend.

“I was really impressed with the coaches at Ole Miss,” Davis stated. “The facilities were real nice, but I expected that. The players were great, but I expected that too. What stood out to me was the coaches. I could see myself playing for coaches like that.”

Davis, who made AAAAAA All-District at three spots – wideout, corner and returns, according to his coach, Todd Thompson, said that distance is no problem with him or his family, but his choice is between the Rebels and the Aggies of Texas A&M – his home state school of choice.

“I am going to decide after my visit to Texas A&M next weekend between Ole Miss and A&M,” he declared.

A&M may have an ace up their sleeve, besides being the home state school. New Aggie Offensive Coordinator Noel Mazzone had already been recruiting Davis for UCLA before moving over to Texas A&M. Now, he’s carrying the Davis recruiting ball for the Aggies.

“I already knew Coach Mazzone, so my door was open for him,” Davis closed. “I’m in a good situation because I don’t think I can wrong with either school.”

Thompson said whoever gets Davis will get the most versatile player he has ever coached.

“Q can do it all.. Anything you ask him to do, he can do. He never came off the field for us and that is in AAAAAA ball in Texas, a pretty good league,” Thompson said. “He’s got excellent speed and when the ball is in the air, he competes for it, at corner and at wideout.”
