Mike Davis Rounding Up Junior Day Invites

The Dallas Skyline Raiders finished the 2008 season at 12-2 after a fourth round playoff loss to Round Rock Stony Point. Star receiver Mike Davis headlined an offense that featured at least a half dozen future college players. Burnt Orange Beat caught up with Davis to discuss his offseason plans and the recruiting process.

Dallas Skyline's Mike Davis, Burnt Orange Beat's #12 rated prospect in Texas, finished his junior season with 58 catches for 1138 yards and 16 touchdowns. Those monster numbers earned Davis 5A All-State Honorable Mention and District 9-5A offensive player of the year. That production and his silky smooth body control have drawn a lot of recruiting attention.

"I have offers from Oklahoma State, California, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Stanford, Kansas, Iowa, and Iowa State," said Davis.

In addition to his offers, he also has been invited to several junior days including the January 24th Oklahoma Sooner Junior Day and the February 8th Texas Longhorn Junior Day in Austin. Davis also has junior day invites from Alabama, Texas Tech, and Texas A&M.

"Coach Muschamp and Coach Chambers came and personally invited me down to Austin. That was nice," said Davis. "I am going to go down (to Austin) with Corey (Nelson) on the 8th definitely," added Davis.

Davis' teammates Nelson and linebacker Dominique Patterson will be at Texas A&M this weekend, but Davis was unsure of he would attend.

In addition to all of his junior day visits, Davis (6-1, 180, 4.5) is also playing basketball and plans to run track this season. Both fast and quick with leaping ability, Davis is flashing that ability on the basketball court to the tune of 14.2 points and 4.9 rebounders per game for the 12-7 Raiders.

"I am going to run track this year to work on my speed. I am going to try to run the 100, 4 x 400, and 4 x 200," said Davis.

Davis is a very polisher receiver already as he catches with his hands very well. He also has very good body control. But perhaps more impressively, Davis is a tenacious blocker in the Raider run game.
