Stockton (Calif.) Lincoln running back Justin Davis (6-1, 197), is fast becoming one of the most heavily recruited backs in the West.

Davis is up to ten offers, with Ole Miss offering on Wednesday and Thursday getting an offer from Washington, Washington State and Oregon State.

"It's getting busy but it's definitely exciting," said Davis. "The Ole Miss offer came out of nowhere. They called my coach and told me to call them, and they offered. That was my first SEC offer so that's a big deal."

Davis talked with Washington earlier Thursday and was offered by the Huskies, and then followed by Oregon State and Washington State and they join Oklahoma, Boise State, UCLA, Cal, Northwestern and Michigan in offering him.

"Notre Dame has been asking for my information and I think some more schools will be asking for more film here," said Davis.

This weekend, Davis will be visiting USC for their Junior Day and will be in Berkeley next weekend to visit Cal's Junior Day.

"USC is talking like they could be offering me soon," said Davis.

Davis said he's planning to visit UCLA during the spring and may also check out Boise State and Oregon State.

"Angus McClure at UCLA wants me to come down during their spring football and to their Junior Day," said Davis. "And Boise State, I know Doug Martin personally and that's made Boise intriguing to me and especially what they've been doing in the past few years. I was talking a lot to Oregon State earlier in the year, and they haven't offered me yet but according to what Brandin Cooks (a receiver at Oregon State and his former Lincoln teammate) is telling me, they could be soon."

Davis said he is open to any kind of offense.

"Really, I'm looking for what we run in high school, and that's what I'll be more comfortable with," said Davis. "A balanced spread type offense. I can handle 25-30 carries a game."

Davis was stellar at the U.S. Army Combine and plans to do at least one more camp in the spring, the Stanford NFTC, but will also be doing track.

For Davis, all of the attention has come as a surprise.

"I wasn't even sure I'd get my first offer until my senior year, and then I got the one from Oklahoma and then people were saying I would get a lot more and it's all starting to happen," said Davis.

Academically, Davis has a 3.3 and will take the SAT next month.
