Iowa Western's Davis has one early offer

Since he redshirted last season, Iowa Western RB Charles Davis (5-9, 175) still has a lot to prove on the football field, but that hasn't stopped one school from offering and several others from letting him know they like what he brings to to table. caught up with the gifted runner recently and he updated us on things...

"I have an offer from Toledo and Syracuse, the school I had signed with out of high school, has said they were going to offer, but I don't actually have an offer from them yet," Davis told recently. "I've been talking a lot with Kansas State and I'm visiting them on March 2nd, just to see the school and stuff. Tulsa and Maryland have also been talking to me a lot too."

As a prep, Davis enjoyed a solid career at Avon (In.) High School, and signed with Syracuse after graduating. However, he was unable to qualify, so he headed to the best JUCO program he could find.

"I had actually been talking to Iowa Western a lot in high school and they were my best option and they have some great coaches and a great program here."

Since the Reivers were loaded at tailback with the likes of Aaron Wimberly (Iowa State), Don Jackson (Nevada) and Vernard Roberts, Davis was redshirted, allowing him to save a season of eligibility and the ability to get bigger and stronger.

"My biggest assets are my speed and my vision," Davis noted. "This offseason I've been working on my hands a lot and also getting bigger. I wanted to get some good size on me and I'm working out a lot and eating pretty well too."

Davis is on pace to graduate in December and, like we noted earlier, because he redshirted last year, he will have three years to play three following the 2013 season.
