Davis locks it down for Hutchinson

A corner who can lock down one side of the field is always a nice thing to have and Hutchinson CB Kendall Davis (5-9, 160) fits that bill perfectly. JCFootball.com caught up with the talented cover-corner and he updated us on things including which D-1 schools have shown the most interest in procuring his services following the season...

Davis was a standout football player as a prep at Wichita Heights High School, but because he was unable to qualify, he didn't get a lot of recruiting attention, so he said the natural move was for him to head to Hutchinson.

"It was real close to home and I loved the campus here," Davis told JCFootball.com about why he decided to become a Blue Dragon. "The coaching staff has had a bunch of success here and I wanted a chance to play football at the next level."

As a freshman last season, Davis was solid posting two interception and 23 tackles while playing mostly as the nickel corner and this year as a starter, he's already racked up 17 tackles and two more interceptions in the Blue Dragons' first four games.

"I'm a lock down guy," Davis said. "I can run and cover, but I also like to hit, so I'm physical too. I think I'm pretty balanced."

Davis ran a 4.29 forty time this past spring and he has a 35.5-inch vertical and several D-1 programs have let him know that they have their eyes on him.

"Right now Southern Miss and Ohio have made the most contact with me," Davis said. "I've gotten some stuff from Purdue and Southern Illinois just started talking to me too.

"I don't have any offers yet, but I'm sending my tape out to them and they also want to look at my grades and my transcripts. I think I'll get some offers, but I just want to focus on playing ball and I think the rest will take care of itself."

Davis is on pace to graduate in December and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.

This weekend, Davis and his Hutchinson teammates will take on Butler at home.
