Indy WR looking at three
Indianapolis wide receiver Kevin Davis has already narrowed his list of offers down to a final three, and visits this summer might get him closer to a decision.
The 5-foot-11, 175-pound receiver at Warren Central says he's favoring Cincinnati, Indiana and Purdue, although the other MAC schools that have also offered aren't officially being excluded. Davis says he will soon visit Purdue for a third time; he was in West Lafayette with teammates, including safety Jordan Shine, who committed shortly after, for a junior day during spring practices.
"It went well, very well," Davis said. "The receivers coach, Coach (Patrick) Higgins, he's awesome, a good guy. And Coach (Donn) Landholm is very good too; Coach (Danny) Hope is awesome. The whole coaching staff is great and the players look very smooth in their routes so I'm excited."
It's Davis' attention to detail that has most attracted college schools, he says. Purdue has noted his route running as a strength.
"When they see my film, they say that; it's the same thing Cincinnati saw. They tell me they love me and are willing to hold that offer as long as they can to wait for me to make my decision. I believe I'm No. 1 in their book, from what they tell me."
Davis has visited Cincinnati twice previous, and has been to Indiana once, and came away with positive reviews of both school. But he says he'll be back at Purdue in the next month or so to take a bigger tour of the school.
"I just want to learn more about the coaching staff, and will bring my mother," he said. "She's a big part of my decision as far as my college choice. I want to have her come up there and meet Coach Hope and Coach Higgins and Coach Landholm, the people who are attracting me to Purdue. I want to see her reaction."
Davis says he has three major criteria in trying to choice where to go to school.
"Academically, I want to know how they stack up to other schools," he said. "I want to be a business major in college. And of course athletically, show they can win games, and lastly, is the coaching staff, whether they're a family and whether they base their program on God, that's a big part of my life."
