Davis Shanley stood out at WKU's satellite camp in Gallatin, Tenn.

South Forsyth, Ga., quarterback Davis Shanley stood out at WKU's satellite camp in Gallatin, Tenn.

Cumming (Ga.) South Forsyth quarterback Davis Shanley is becoming quite familiar with the WKU coaching staff.

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound prospect attended a Hilltoppers Junior Day in April, spending time visiting the WKU campus and further strengthening his relationship with the coaching staff.  Shanley had another opportunity to impress at the WKU satellite in Gallatin, Tenn., satellite camp last week.

Working with a group that was more than a dozen strong at the camp, Shanley's performance drew praise from Hilltoppers head coach Jeff Brohm. 

"He said I was the best QB he had seen by far," Shanely told WKUInsider.  "Coach Brohm said he wanted to get me back on campus and get a good feel because he wants me to go there very badly."

Shanley also shined at a recent camp at North Carolina, explaining that the Tar Heels staff appear tempted to extend an offer.  UNC signed a pair of quarterbacks in the 2016 class.

"(They explained that) they would offer unfortunately they do not have an open spot to take a QB commitment," he said.

Conference USA rival Old Dominion has extended an offer, as has Mercer, Tennessee Tech, Chattanooga and Samford.

Shanley, who "would like to commit hopefully before the season starts," currently claims two leaders.

"I believe two front runners right now are WKU and UNC," he said.

Shanley threw for 2,375 yards and 25 touchdowns as a junior, while also adding an additional 715 yards and eight scores on the ground.
