Davis having a big season for Siskiyous

With football becoming more and more specialized, it's nice to have a prospect that can play multiple roles on a team. College of the Siskiyous WR Darius Davis (5-11, 195) is a playmaker at receiver and he doubles as a dangerous return man and he's off to a fast start for the Eagles and he's getting lots of recruiting interest from schools across the country.

"Personally things have been going well for me, but as a team, it's been a tough start to our season," Davis told JCFootball.com recently. "I mean, we're 1-4, so we have some work to do, but you just have to take things one game at a time and just keep working hard, because eventually you'll break through."

Even with his team struggling, Davis is off to an outstanding start. He's posted 37 receptions for 466 yards and four touchdowns while also leading the state in punt return average -- a robust 26.6 yard average -- as well.

"It's been a little frustrating because teams are kicking away from me now, so I haven't had many chances to touch the ball," Davis noted. "I mean, it's all about respect and I take it as a sign they respect my abilities, but that doesn't take away from the fact that I want to get my hands on the ball to help my team out any way that I can."

On the recruiting front, Davis still claims just two offers -- New Mexico and Akron -- but he said things have begun to pick up with several other schools who could be close to offering.

"Kansas State, South Florida, Middle Tennessee, Kentucky, Oregon State and Cal have all been after me lately," Davis said. "Cal said they like my returning abilities and Kentucky said I would really fit their offense well.

"I'm open to everyone and I want to take some visits, but right now, I'm just going to play out my season and then take some trips."

Davis was a full-qualifier out of high school, so he can leave at any time and he'll have his two year degree in December with three years to play two wherever he ends up.
