Offers Abound For Blue Chip 2010 Receiver

Mike Davis is one of three junior recruits from Skyline high school attracting attention from around the country after an impressive junior campaign. Aggie Websider's David Sandhop visits with the prospect about his plans for the future.

A stop on the 2010 recruiting trail for any college coach should go through Dallas Skyline. The Raiders boast several D-1 caliber junior prospects including linebackers Corey Nelson and Dominque Patterson, and electrifying wide receiver Mike Davis. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound receiver was instrumental in Skyline's 12-2 season that took them to the state quarterfinals earlier this month. Davis finished the season with approximately 60 catches for 1200 yards and a head-turning 16 touchdowns.

"I have a good team around me so credit goes to my teammates," Davis said. "But I'd say that my strengths are I run crisp routes, play off the defensive backs and read what they are doing, and I have very good hands. If the ball is close, I'll catch it."

Davis indicated that he'd like to get stronger and build muscle mass in the offseason, but that's not slowing down scholarship offers from high D-1 programs. Currently, Davis holds nine offers.

"I have offers from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Iowa, Stanford, Cal, Iowa State, Texas Tech, Minnesota, and Texas A&M," Davis said. "I'm also hearing from Texas but they said they don't send out offers until after Signing Day."

The Aggies have offered all three Skyline prospects, and the trio have been talking about how they'd like to continue their careers playing together at the next level.

"Yeah, we've talked about playing together at Texas A&M. All three of us like it there," Davis said. "But we're just talking and it's a long way off. A lot of things can change, but we talk about it because we're real close."

While Davis suggested that he'll consider any team that offers him, he did mention four schools that have caught his eye so far and they all happen to be in the Big 12.

"The teams I'll probably look at the most for now are OU, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, and Texas if they offer," Davis said. "I wouldn't say I have a favorite at this point, but those are a few programs I'm interested in currently."

Davis mentioned that the school's tradition and their style of offense will factor in heavily to his decision which will likely come sometime this summer. To date, he has no junior day visits scheduled but he plans to attend a few after the new year.
