For most recruits, the best chance for them to get on the radar of a major college football program is to perform well at a prospect camp and gain the attention of the coaches. For 2018 wide receiver Deion Davis, his performance at Penn State's Elite Football Camp this past weekend may has gotten the attention of the coaching staff.
"The coaches said the liked my speed and agility," revealed Davis. "I was able to talk to a few of the coaches, including the offensive coordinator (Joe Moorhead) and the wide receiver coach (Josh Gattis). I talked a lot to Coach Gattis during the camp because he was in charge of my group during the individual stations part of the camp."
Even though Davis did not leave Happy Valley with an offer, he did leave a good impression on the coaching staff.
"I tested pretty well and they (the coaching staff) said my testing numbers in the forty-yard-dash, shuttle run and broad jump were good. The coaches said that I'm now on their radar and they plan on checking out game-film from my first three games of my upcoming senior year."
Cleezy's extra points: According to a story by FOS editor Mark Brennan, Davis was the most consistent wide receiver at the camp last weekend. Davis officially has offers from Monmouth, Maine and Army. Davis, who camped at Penn State as a wide receiver, may start to see some interest at the cornerback position as well. Temple has invited him to camp again at their school as a cornerback instead of a wide receiver. At 6-foot-2, 165 pounds, Davis says he's open to playing cornerback at the collegiate level and is not hung up on just playing wide receiver.
Extra note: Current Nittany Lion Desi Davis (redshirt junior) is the brother of Deion Davis.
