Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco 2017 offensive lineman Wyatt Davis (6-4, 315) is one of the premier offensive line prospects in his class.

The four-star will be in discussion for a five-star when its all said and done and he can play either tackle or guard.

On Tuesday, Davis took an unofficial visit to UCLA and when he left, he had his sixth offer.

“Coach (Jim) Mora showed me around and he offered me,” said Davis. “Coach (Adrian) Klemm had been recruiting me for UCLA. Coach Mora is very nice and a great guy and a great person.”

The quarterback Davis was charged with protecting this past season, Josh Rosen, is now on campus at UCLA.

“I was a little under-the-radar during the season, but Coach Mora had come to our games, but I think they were looking at Josh mostly,” said Davis. “But I know he was there watching us.”

Davis was on the UCLA campus for the first time and said he enjoyed his time in Westwood.

“UCLA was incredible,” said Davis. “They took me down in the weight room and showed me all of the equipment, took me out to the fields and then they had me sit down with their academic counselors so I got a feel for how that was. They showed me around the north and south part of campus. That was my first time going there and I loved it there.”

Davis said Mora likes him to play inside in college, but the Bruins would take him at any spot.

“UCLA thinks I would play guard really well, but Coach Mora told me I could play every single position on the offensive line if I went there,” said Davis.

The Bruins joined Alabama, Cal, Missouri, Oklahoma and USC in offering Davis.

“It’s been a huge surprise for me with all of the offers I’ve gotten,” said Davis. “Everything I’m getting right now, it’s blowing me away. I never thought at this point in my football career, I would have these schools, but every school that has offered me has been a big deal to me.”

Davis has visited USC already and he enjoyed his time there too.

“It was very nice and I had an incredible and great time,” said Davis. Coach (Bob) Connelly and Coach (Steve) Sarkisian are recruiting me there. USC is recruiting me more as a tackle.”

This weekend, Davis will visit Berkeley to check out Cal and visit his older brother, David, who’s a defensive lineman for the Bears.

“Coach (Brandon) Jones, their new offensive line coach, is recruiting me but my brother is telling me that it’s a great place,” said Davis. “I’m going up to Cal on Friday for an unofficial visit and to meet the coaches.”

Davis will then leave during spring break to see a number of SEC schools, including Alabama, the first to offer him, and Missouri, where his father went.

“Coach Tosh Lupoi is recruiting me at Alabama and he’s who offered me, so we’re going out there to start a tour of SEC schools then we’ll visit Missouri over spring break,” said Davis.

Davis missed The Opening Los Angeles because he was in basketball but he plans to participate at The Opening Oakland.

“I could still do football conditioning with basketball but I didn’t do that camp,” said Davis. “But from here on out, its all football.”

Davis said he’s working to get down to 295 in the offseason, where he wants to play his junior campaign.

He’ll stay at tackle for the Braves and will likely switch to the left side with Zach Robertson gone to college.

But for college, he’s open to any position.

“For me, it doesn’t matter which spot I play because I feel like guard and tackle are very similar,” said Davis. “Wherever they see I can best fit the program is where I will.”

With nearly two years until he’ll sign somewhere, Davis sees no reason to rush the process.

“I’m going to start really focusing in on which schools I like yet because it’s still early, so I don’t have a top anything,” said Davis. “I’m taking it all in as time goes. But it’s been very exciting and this has always been a dream of mine.”
