Muir HS connection has Ahmir Davis high on the Spartans

Two-way athlete Ahmir Davis holds an offer from San Jose State and has heard first-hand about what the program has to offer.

Pasadena (Calif.) Muir HS athlete Ahmir Davis has made his presence known to schools in the West, though a tie with San Jose State led to mutual interest and his first of two offers. Davis said that SJSU freshman Tae’on Mason, formerly a four-star recruit also of Muir HS, is like a brother to him.

“He put in a good word for me,” Davis said. “Taeon has been telling me it’s a good environment. He said it fits him and we come from the same place so if it fits him it’ll fit me. He tells me it feels like home, everyone gets along, everything around there is nice. I’m highly considering San Jose State - I’ll see when I take a visit.”

Davis had been talking with the staff for some time, but contact progressed with the arrival of defensive coordinator Ron English and defensive backs coach Will Harris. His offer came just more than a month ago.

“I was very excited,” Davis said. “It was a humbling experience. I was just really happy and excited… They seem real cool. I talk with Coach Will (Harris), Coach Ron (English) and Coach Caragher. They really want me there. They want me to take a visit as soon as possible.”

That visit could come as early as this weekend.

The Spartans were the first to offer Davis while New Mexico became his second offer earlier this month. He is also drawing interest from San Diego State, Washington State and Wyoming.

He plans on unofficially visiting Arizona State, San Diego State, Texas A&M, Washington and Washington State this offseason. Davis also plans to camp with SJSU, Arizona State and Washington State this summer.

Davis ranks school environment, facilities and the people in the program as priorities for the school he picks.

On the field, Davis plays both ways and is a factor on special teams. He hopes to make an impact in all three phases at the next level. However, San Jose State is primarily recruiting him as a defensive back. San Diego State and Washington State also envision him at corner while Wyoming is recruiting him as an athlete.

“I have great ball skills, great length, long arms, a physical mentality, nice footwork, and I like to compete,” Davis said.
