Ohio Prospect Thinking Two-Sports?

Often is the case at this time of the year, kids are not only choosing schools, but having to decide between sports. Nate Davis, a three sport star at Bellaire High School in Ohio, has decided to focus his attention on one sport now that he has garnered more attention from colleges. What's the latest?

"I've gotten a bunch of new schools and new offers of late," Nate Davis said. "Indiana and Toledo have offered me scholarships in football and Marshall is after me real hard right now and could possibly offer soon and Bowling Green."

Davis is the poster child for stellar athletes - having the choice of playing basketball, baseball or football at the next level if he wanted too.

Yet he insists, it's just the pigskin. "I'm just concentrating on football now," Davis concluded. "That seems to be where I'll get the most choices."

As a junior, Davis threw for 2,000 yards and 26 touchdowns for an 8-4 team. Then, he averaged 29 points and 14 rebounds a game in basketball, garnering All-Ohio honors his freshmen and sophomore year. He added nine home runs in 14 games in baseball to finish it off.

"Virginia has been calling alot and I talked to them a couple of times, I'd say they are talking pretty serious," Davis said. "Illinois has come down to see me play, Pitt and Penn State have come down and Ohio State has called my school. They've all been pretty much sending me letters."

Davis intends on making a collegiate decision after the season and is open to listening to any school that is serious about him. He describes himself as a drop back passer, whose most dangerous asset is his arm strength.

The term 'athlete' has been tagged with Davis, not so much because of his size or his lack of ability at quarterback, but because of his performance on the defensive end, previously.

"Davis only plays defense when Bellaire needs him," Scout.com's Duane Long wrote. "He played in the defensive backfield for the first time all year in week seven and had an interception and eight tackles at corner."

Needless to say, at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds, the sky is truly the limit for Nate Davis and the chances he has at excelling.

You need only to point at everything else he participates in to find faith in that reason.
