2012 QB Matt Davis racking up major offers

Houston (Texas) Klein Forest High quarterback Matt Davis has quickly become one of the most wanted prospects of the 2012 recruiting class. The 6-foot-1, 198-pound dual-threat has amassed double digit offers from some of the biggest programs in the nation, and he will likely get several more during his junior season.

Houston (Texas) Klein Forest High quarterback Matt Davis has quickly established himself as one of the most wanted players of the 2012 recruiting class. The 6-foot-1, 198-pound signal caller is about to enter his junior season and already holds double-digit offers from some of the biggest programs in the nation.

Defending national champions Alabama, along with Auburn, Baylor, Iowa State, LSU, Oklahoma State, Oregon, TCU, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Tulsa, Tulane and Oregon State have all offered Davis.

The dual-threat quarterback returned today from a road-trip he took to visit a few schools in the southeast.

"I just got back from visiting a few schools. I went to Alabama, Auburn and LSU," said Davis.

Davis enjoyed checking out the three premier SEC programs, but two of the visits stood out above the third.

"Alabama went well, but it wasn't what I expected it to be. It was a good visit though, I met all the coaches and stuff, but I didn't feel the connection that I felt at Auburn and LSU. Next I went to Auburn, it was great. It was probably the best out of all the visits I've taken so far. I met with coach Chizik and the whole offensive staff, it was a really good visit. I also loved the LSU visit. We had a pretty good camp today. I met with all of the coaching staff. I talked with coach Miles for like an hour in the players lounge. The food there is great too."

The 6-foot-1, 198-pound Davis has also been hearing from the Longhorns coaching staff.

"Texas is one of the best schools in the country. Their coaches contacted my coach and told him that when I come down for a visit they will give me an offer, but I haven't made it down for a visit yet. I've been anticipating the offer, so hopefully it will come soon."

He plans to take his first visit to Austin in early August before his junior season begins. If the Longhorns extend a scholarship offer, they will rank among the top of Davis' offer list.

"They'll be right up there at the top. If you don't appreciate a University of Texas offer and don't even consider it then you don't want to play college football, because they are one of the top programs in the nation. They are one of the first things you think about when you think about college football."

At this point in his recruitment Davis has visited TCU, Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Texas A&M and Texas Tech. Out of those visits, he listed Auburn, LSU and Texas Tech as his favorites so far.

The Houston standout is coming off of a stellar sophomore season and plans to put up even bigger numbers during his junior year.

"I want to win the first state championship for my high school, and I'm looking for 5,000-plus yards. I want to throw for 3,000 and run for 2,000 yards."

If anyone can put up those kind of numbers it would be Davis. He is the ultimate dual-threat at the quarterback position. At 6-foot-1, 198-pounds, Davis runs a 4.41 40-yard dash and is a nightmare for opposing defenses. Last season he passed for 1,393 yards along with 14 touchdowns. He also rushed for 1,427 yards and 22 touchdowns.
