Busy Month Ahead For WR

Darrell Davis will have a lot to analyze this month as he will talk 4 official visits. The 6-foot-5 receiver from Pasco talks to USFnation.com about what position the Bulls are recruiting him at, his plans for January, and a surprise visit from Coach Leavitt. Read on for the full story.

Darrell Davis of Pasco High School could be the prototypical wide receiver USF covets. Or he could be a tight end, linebacker and safety. He's the type of player that could add a few pounds and play a multitude of positions, not just wide-out.

As of now his leader is North Carolina State, followed by South Florida and then Central Florida. Davis has already visited NC State, and will take a visit to UCF on the 6th of January, USF on the 20th, and UF on the 27th. He is also a dual sport standout and will take a basketball visit to Charleston Southern on the 15th. Needless to say it will be a busy month for Davis.

Davis would like to play wide receiver but is open to making a switch.

"I've been working out and adding weight," Says Davis, "I played this season at about 195 and right now I'm up to 203. I'm thinking I might be better at tight-end where I could create match-up problems."

Davis says USF is recruiting him mostly as a wide receiver or a tight end, but its not ruled out that he wouldn't play defense.

"I talk with Coach Dawsey a couple times a week and I talk with Coach Frey about once a week." Davis also received a visit from Coach Leavitt not too long ago. "I was really surprised. Coach Leavitt came straight from his team's practice to come see me. I thought that was special because it meant they are serious about me."

Overall Davis is looking for a school where he can make an impact. He said its not necessary that he comes in and plays as a freshman, but he does want an opportunity to compete for a starting job his first two years with the program. He also told USFnation that this month's visits will be key in making a decision. As of now NC State is in the lead, but that is also the only school he has visited so far. Check back for an update after Davis makes his visit to USF.
