Chris Davis worked out at the Columbus Nike Camp this past Saturday. He was one of the toughest matchups for the opposing cornerbacks all day. Though Davis is used to top-level competition in his conference, with the teams he's used to playing, he said Saturday's group of competition—even the quarterbacks he had to get used to catching passes from—made him want to step up his game even more for that one day.
Overall, he was a bit humble in talking about his own performance.
"I thought I did good, but I could have done better," Davis said. "I have to work on some routes. I'll just work a lot more harder in the offseason. I'd like to get my routes better, come out of my breaks faster.
"We have a lot of competition (in his league). I think it was a little more (Saturday). It was really good. The quarterbacks were good."
There is one other prospect camp he plans on attending that should be another good measuring stick, to see where he stacks up against some more top-level competition.
"I think I'm going to go to the Auburn camp," Davis said. "That's the only camp I know of for sure. I don't know about any other ones. I don't think I'll be going to any others."
Davis, his twin brother Demitrious Davis and teammate William Mahone have been to Pitt for junior day, a spring practice and for the spring game. They will be coming back for another unofficial visit on June 4, to visit during Pitt's first prospect camp of the summer.
"I'm going back down there on (June) fourth, just to hang out with the coaches at camp," Davis said. "I'm not going to do the camp, but just hang out with (receivers) coach (Mike) Norvell; see how he coaches, and all that."
With 21 offers, Pitt has continuously been a favorite of all three of these athletes. It's evident that the coaching staff is playing a big role in that, not to mention that Pitt was one of the first schools to show interest.
"I love Pitt, just because of the coaching staff," Davis added. "(Head) coach (Todd) Graham seems like a straight-up guy. The coaching staff is good people. They'll definitely be in the top, no matter what. They have a really nice campus. All the facilities are nice. I just like the atmosphere."
As a junior, Davis caught 43 passes for 406 yards and eight touchdowns, and also added 356 yards on the ground with another four touchdowns. On defense, he had two interceptions on defense, and also returned a kickoff for a touchdown. He earned first-team all-league and second-team all-state honors.
