Frankie Davis could have possibly let an opportunity slip through his fingers. The talented defensive tackle from Clermont, Fla. tripped to West Lafayette a week ago and fell in love.
"It was a good visit. We went and checked out the campus and coaching staff. And we talked a lot about what was happening with the defense and stuff like that next year. The main thing I loved about it was the tradition they have. And they players they have. All the players told me I could come in and work hard and get a chance at playing and the coaches are just great people and that's why I fell in love with it" Davis told BoilerSportsReport.
Only a few days ago, it looked as if Davis was ready to make his decision, however, that looks to be a decision that will be pushed back a little while.
"I was going to make a decision. I was going to commit to Purdue. But I guess someone else committed before me so I don't know if I have a scholarship offer anymore. I'm going to talk to the coaches about it."
With seven defensive linemen already in the fold for the 2009 Boilermaker class, it's almost unlikely that there would be any room to accommodate Davis. If there was any room, Davis knows exactly what he'd do.
"If I still have an offer from Purdue, I'm taking it in a heartbeat, no questions asked. But right now I don't think I have an offer from them. I'll probably talk to them sometime next week."
After that talk with Coach Hope and the rest of his staff, Davis will know exactly what lies in store for him, but a decision may not come right away.
"The thing is I don't really know when I'm going to make that decision. I was really into Purdue, but now with that I'm leaning more towards UCF."
Does Offer Still Stand?
