Southlake (Texas) Carroll has been one of the top high school programs in the country over the past decade. The Dragons have won several state championships and have alumni on college rosters all over the country. It shouldn't be a surprise then that the team has another top recruit coming up.
Inside linebacker Will Davis helped anchor the defense this past season and the 6-foot-1, 208-pound junior is actively being recruited by several colleges. However, it was not until late last week that the standout defender picked up his first offer.
"Kansas State offered me," Davis said. "That's my first one. They called my head coach and told him.
"I went up there for their junior day. It was two weekends ago. They offered me last Thursday so it wasn't too long after that. When I was up there they talked about how they wanted to see a little more film before they committed to anything. We sent up some more game film and I guess they liked it."
Davis says he likes what he saw in Manhattan.
"I really enjoyed it," he said. "It was a really nice town and a nice university. I really liked the coaching staff up there."
It was not the first unofficial visit for Davis this semester, though, as he has also seen two other Big 12 schools.
"I went to OU's junior day and (Texas) Tech's junior day," he said. "Both of them are great places too. They're both kind of small town colleges, which I like. Both of the coaching staffs are very good too.
"Neither of them said anything about a possible offer when I was on campus. I've kept in touch with both schools since then, though."
The athletic linebacker has yet another Big 12 visit on his itinerary and he could end up picking up another offer.
"I have plans to visit Iowa State," Davis said. "I'm not sure if it's going to be for a junior day or spring practice. It depends on my schedule. Iowa State would probably be the next closest to offering me besides Kansas State."
Though it is still very early in the process, Davis admits that a pair of programs currently has a bit of an edge.
"Obviously K-State is standing out right now," he said. "I also like Texas Tech quite a bit."
Davis was a first-team all-district selection this past season after tallying 124 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, two fumble recoveries and a sack.
