The state of Colorado was well represented at the SoCal NIKE Camp on Saturday. Not only was the top overall prospect in the camp, OL Ryan Miller, from the Centennial state, but the top wide receiver of the day, Drew Davis, as well.
Davis measured in at a rock solid 6-0.5, 195 pounds and was one of the top offensive players in the camp regardless of position. The receiver tested very well running a 4.54 in the 40, jumped 31 inches in the vertical and did 20 reps on the bench.
He looked even better in the position and one on one drills and was everyone's top choice as the top wide out in the camp. Physically, Davis looks like a college player right now. He has a big, strong body, runs very good routes and didn't drop a single pass all camp long according to one of the lead WR coaches. In fact, one of the coaches even called him 'T.O' for Terrell Owens because of Davis' frame and the way he physically torched every defensive back he went up against.
Davis is more than just a workout guy as he showed a year ago that he can get it done on the field as well. The athlete caught 45 balls for 988 yards and scored 16 touchdowns last season to earn all-area and 5A all-state honors. If Davis played his HS ball in the West region, we would rank him as the top receiver in the region, that's how impressive he was in our eyes.
On the recruiting front, Colorado is Davis' lone offer so far and the receiver said he has six schools at the top of his list right now.
"I like USC, UCLA, Michigan State, Kansas State and Kansas," Davis said. "I'm hearing from all of those schools except for USC. That was one of the reasons why I came out here, to show them I could play at that level and I think I did that with this camp."
Another big plus in recruiting Davis is he plans to graduate in December and his scholarship will count on last years (2006) total rather than the current class of 2007. The receiver has already passed the ACT and is carrying a 4.0 GPA.
