The weekend has finally come for Waco Midway HS (Tex.) defensive back and 2016 commit Christian Davis to take his official visit to SMU with some of his future teammates as he starts to get a feel for life at SMU.
“I’m just ready to see the inside of SMU, I’ve seen the outside, but I just want to go inside and see what they really have to offer me,” Davis said, “I’ve heard some good things, I’m just pretty excited to go up there and see where I’m going to be spending my next four years.”
While on the visit, Davis will be sure to stop by the Cox School of Business and get a better sense of what his academic time at SMU will look like.
“My main thing is to go see the business school, the Cox school. That’s what I want to major in,” Davis said.
The weekend as a whole will be special for Davis, who says he’s going to use the time to envision himself on the campus in a couple months.
“I’m just ready to get up there and see it again,” Davis said, “I’m ready to picture myself how I’m going to like playing there and see what they have planned for us, just really excited to get there.”
As for the past six months, the 5-11, 170-pound cornerback says the relationship he has built with his fellow commits has helped the time pass, however, he’s just ready to get to the Hilltop and get together with all of them full-time.
“It’s just grown tighter and tighter, the faster it goes, signing day is just around the corner and we are all just ready to get together this June in the summer and start putting the work in this summer,” Davis said.
It has been a similarly tight knit bond with the coaching staff that has kept in touch with Davis and also did an in-home visit right before the holidays.
“The same way, it has been an amazing few months just to see how they come to your house to see you, it’s amazing, I really can’t wait to get up there,” Davis said.
With some of the commits visiting this weekend, and most next weekend, Davis imagines this is going to serve as a little bit of a preview of what’s to come in a couple of months.
“It’s going to be a little bit of foreshadowing for us what it’s going to be like when we get there,” Davis said, “But only a few of us are going this weekend, and the rest are going next week, so we’ll just get a good chance to see what it feels like.”
Despite falling short of the state title he so badly wanted, Davis still considers this season a success because of the strides he was able to make on the field this season, as well as, in preparing for SMU.
“It’s honestly been a great year for me, I’ve grown a lot learning a new position so I wouldn’t change anything about it,” Davis said, “My main focus earlier was to finish the best way that I could and I think I did that, and now I’m ready to be an SMU Mustang.”
