Davis Talks About UCLA Visit

Denver (Colo.) Montbello receiver Drew Davis was one of the three official visitors UCLA hosted for their win over USC. Davis talks about his trip, a recent shakeup in his list and gives a timeline for his decision...

One of the three official visitors this weekend in Westwood was Denver (Colo.) Montbello receiver Drew Davis (6-3, 205). For Davis it was his third visit and next weekend, when he trips to Cal, it will be his fourth and final visit.

"I've gone to Oregon and Washington, and I'd put this trip to UCLA up right there at the top with Oregon," said Davis. "I haven't been able to see a good game on any of my visits, but this was a great game. I didn't know the stadium could be packed like that. It was the first upset I've seen in my life. It was a good experience."

Davis was hosted by freshman receiver Terrence Austin.

"Terrence and I got along pretty good, I relate to him a lot," said Davis. "He told me the ups and downs of the school and he was real with me. I liked that."

Davis also spent time talking with the UCLA coaching staff, specifically head coach Karl Dorrell, receivers coach D.J. McCarthy and John Wristen, who has been recruiting him.

"We talked about what they would expect from me and they told me I would be an important part of the receivers group," said Davis. "They said they lacked a downfield threat and that I would be that guy and how much I meant to them. With the scholarship numbers, they haven't really offered any receivers, so that means a lot to me that they've offered me. They said that the receivers that they want in this class need to make plays."

Davis also talked about his impressions of UCLA in their stunner over USC.

"The odds were in USC favor, so for them to win, year in and year out, you know they'll have to be a team to be respected. They showed me how they can come out and play and if they get a few more weapons, they will be an offense to reckon with," said Davis.

Davis will visit Cal next weekend and he said that he anticipates having a decision made with in a week afterwards. Last month, Davis said that Georgia Tech was his leader, but now he's not considering the Jackets.

"I'm not looking at them anymore because they want me to greyshirt," said Davis. "I'll most likely decide a week after my trip to Cal, like the next Friday. It shouldn't be too long. I'm going to discuss it with my parents and my coaches."

Davis said that no leader has emerged yet, and that the trip to Cal will allow him to narrow down his schools.

"Each school is still up there," said Davis. "It's up for grabs. After Cal next week, I'll have a better idea."

Davis finished the season with 25 receptions for 550 yards and nine touchdowns.

He has a 4.0 GPA and scored an 18 on the ACT.
