SMU welcomed their first wave of official visits this past weekend with three of their commits making the trip over to the Hilltop, one of those in attendance was 2016 Waco Midway HS (Tex.) defensive back Christian Davis and the weekend did not disappoint for him.
“It was great, one of the greatest weekends of my life, couldn’t have pictured it any better, they had it set up really well for us,” Davis said, “Just really excited to go down there really and be a Mustang.”
The weekend was filled with tons of food, lots of visits around campus and a big focus on what they could expect in the coming years.
“Well for sure they had a whole ton of food, so much food, I feel like I weigh ten more pounds,” Davis said, “They just had everything really well laid out for us, I didn’t have any questions at all - just a really good setup.”
“It just made it more of a good experience, just getting to spend time with my future teammates and we got to talk a lot about how we’re ready to get up there, it was just a great time up there,” Davis said.
One of the things Davis was most looking forward to about the trip was getting the chance to go inside the Cox School of Business, and it turned out even better than he thought it would.
“It was really good, we actually got to tour it and I actually got to meet one of the professors there so it really had just everything laid out for us,” Davis said, “I just really liked it.”
Davis was impressed with the academic side of SMU and what he heard, he also admitted this will be a big focus for him early on while he gets accustomed to playing college football.
“It’s one of the top schools in the country, that’s why I want to major in it,” Davis said, “Not only that, but just coming to SMU that just adds onto it, that’s the main thing is just to take care of the academic part first, and then the athletic part will just come naturally.”
Over the course of the weekend, Davis and the staff did get a chance to talk a little football, but the weekend’s focus was mostly on what life would be like being a Mustang.
“It was more about how it was going to be the next four years and us and stuff, but they did remind us about how this class is really important to SMU and turning the program around,” Davis said.
Even though Davis has taken his official visit, he did not rule out taking another visit up to campus before signing day.
“I want to, I don’t have any official dates left, but I sure would like to go back up there again.”
