CB Sets Up Two Official Visits

Fort Worth (Dunbar HS) cornerback prospect <b>D.J. Davis</b> may be one of the most versatile athletes in Texas this season. He recently set up two official visits, including one to Penn State, and named other possibilities.

Name: D.J. Davis
Position: CB
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 188 pounds
40-yard dash: 4.31 as a sophomore
Bench Press: 350 lbs
Hometown/School: Fort Worth, Tx. (Dunbar HS)

So far, the only school D.J. has seen in person is Texas A&M. Davis, who is being recruited by colleges across the country as a cornerback, plans to take advantage of his allocated official visits and check out some of his favorites. He recently set up a pair of official visits.

"Penn State is in two weeks I want to say," said D.J. Monday evening. "Their homecoming game against Wisconsin is when I go up there (October 4). November 1st is Notre Dame. Those are the only two I have set up right now."

Davis spoke with coaches from both schools last week, Tyrone Willingham from Notre Dame and Brian Norwood from Penn State.

D.J. named three other schools that may receive official visits from him as well.

"I know I'll go to [Texas] A&M, and K State (Kansas State) is a pretty good university in my book. Coach Cooks, I talked to him and some other coaches from there. My dad really likes their program, so, I don't know, maybe I'll go there. I'm thinking about taking an official to Michigan, but I haven't gotten an official scholarship from them yet. That's about it."

D.J., who speaks regularly with Coach Norwood, recalled his conversation with him last week.

"I talked to him about our game against Denton Ryan. He told me he's going to be coming down in October to check me out at the Poly game (October 31)."

Davis will travel to Penn State with both his mother and father.

"The [Penn State] coaches seem pretty cool. I've liked them since my freshman year. They were like the first school to start sending me letters."

Has the Nittany Lion coaching staff spoken to him about the opportunity for early playing time?

"Yeah, if I come in mentally ready and physically ready, then they don't see why I couldn't be on the field."
