Early recruiting picks up for Davis
As a freshman for the Falcons, Davis amassed seven sacks as a third-down specialist, but this year he hopes to be an every-down player.
"Last year was tough because I wanted to play, but there were good players here already," Davis said. "This year I'm real focused on being an every-down player, working hard on my strength and my quickness and what I need to do to help our team win."
Davis prepped at Mayfair High School as a 10th grader and then transferred to Artesia High School for 11th and 12th grade.
"I actually didn't even play ball my senior year," Davis said. "I got a job to help my family out and that didn't leave time for sports, so I didn't really even worry about qualifying or being recruited because I was worried about work instead."
Now well on his way to his two-year degree, Davis is hearing from several schools.
"All of the Pac 10 has contacted me except Arizona and Stanford," Davis said. "South Florida has been looking at me and there are a lot of schools that have been by and said they liked me a lot."
Davis will graduate in December and he'll have three years to play two following the season.
