Star Pass Rusher To Visit Texas

The Longhorns are going out-of-state in their search for a top pass rusher. One plans to visit in the next week or two.

Louisiana product Torshiro Davis was set to make the visit to Austin for the June 5 camp, but he saw his trip delayed. Still, Davis said this week that he plans to make it to Austin soon.

"I'm going to try and get there next Thursday," Davis said. "If not, I'll make sure to visit this summer."

Davis made an early decision to commit to LSU, but said that he did so without knowledge of other schools.

"At that point in time, LSU was the only school I knew about," Davis said. "Once I started to get information on the other schools, I realized that I had no idea about my options."

Davis opened his recruitment, and is now looking at other schools like Texas, Alabama, Missouri and Oklahoma.

All of those schools are drawn to Davis's athleticism and his potential as an edge rusher. While some see him as a college end, Davis said all of his major college interest has come as a linebacker. That's a position that he's worked at since the end of last season.

"That's what I'm trying to improve … just getting used to playing linebacker," Davis said. "This will be my first year playing it, but everybody's recruiting me as an outside linebacker.

"There has been a little bit of an adjustment, moving from a two-point stance to a three-point stance," Davis said. "I'm just trying to put in the extra hours."

Davis said he hopes those added hours will lead to more team success, hopefully taking Woodlawn to a rare state championship.

"I'm just going to keep working hard," Davis said. "I want to get better."
