"A gut feeling along the coaches, the students and fans," were the reasons why Davis chose Oregon over UCLA, California and Washington. It also helps that the Ducks throw the ball a lot.
Despite some rumors that he had committed to UCLA yesterday, Davis cited his relationship with Oregon's receiver coach Robin Pflugrad as a big reason for opting for Oregon.
"I have a great relationship with Coach Pflugrad," says Davis. "He visited me three times over the last month and a half while UCLA didn't visit me once."
Davis has finished high school and will graduate early next week. He has already signed and faxed in a National letter of intent and plans to enroll at Oregon for spring term. He is scheduled to participate in a national all-star game in Florida the first week of January and will be returning home from that event on either the 5th or 6th of January. He will spend some time with his family before heading off to the Pacific Northwest. He carried a 4.0 GPA in high school and is undecided presently as to which major he will pursue, he is leaning toward sociology.
Davis visited Oregon when the Ducks played Arizona and was hosted by Jaison Williams. Even though the Ducks had a tough outing that day against the Wildcats, it didn't detour Davis.
"Hopefully we can get a lot more wins than we did this year," Davis said of the Ducks' record.
"I'm glad to be a Duck," said Davis. "I'm happy to be a part of the excitement and can't wait to run out of the tunnel behind the motorcycle at the start of a Duck game."
