The chase is already on for 2010 wide receiver Mike Davis and there are more than just defensive backs staying busy trying to catch him.
The Dallas (Texas) Skyline wideout has been blowing through the playoffs and has helped lead his team to a state semifinal appearance against Round Rock (Texas) Stony Point. Along the way, Davis has been collecting almost as many offer letters as touchdowns. Recently another big one came in.
"I just received an A&M offer today," Davis said on Monday afternoon. "I like A&M. I could see myself playing there."

Texas A&M joins Iowa, Iowa State, Oklahoma, Stanford and Texas Tech as programs that have already offered the junior standout. Davis has made it clear that he is interested in the newest of those offers.
"I'm excited about all of them," he said. "I like Texas A&M. I watched them a little bit growing up. I love the program but I just don't know too much about them. I like them though."
Davis actually paid the most attention to Florida State and Miami growing up but a third Florida school may be one of the next to come through with an offer.
"Florida, Minnesota and North Carolina, they email me and stuff. I think those may be my next three offers. Texas A&M has been sending me stuff but it was kind of out of the blue."
While the recruiting attention is exciting, Davis has some other things to tend to with his team still in the hunt for a Texas State Championship. Davis has certainly been doing his part to earn one. Through 13 games, Davis has 56 catches for 1,123 yards and 16 touchdowns, averaging over 20 yards per catch.
His production hasn't stopped in the playoffs.
"You gotta be consistent in the playoffs, that's what I'm trying to do," he said. "I think I've got like five or six touchdowns in the playoffs."
Against a talented Desoto team two weeks ago and lined up against highly-touted 2010 cornerback Adrian White, Davis had a big night, catching five balls for 166 yards and two touchdowns. Davis will have another test this weekend against Stony Point's strong defense and secondary.
"I always like going up against the best," he said. "It makes me better so I like to go out there and ball and make plays. First we gotta execute then we gotta win the line of scrimmage then everything else. You just gotta ball and play with heart."
