Klein (Texas) Oak's Cody Davis recently had a game to remember for a defensive lineman. He had two interceptions for scores and a fumble recovery against Klein Forest. A defensive lineman?
Davis is an athletic tackle who has been surprising opponents and impressing college scouts this season. With offers from Western Michigan, Tulane, Rice and Purdue, Davis also does work in the classroom.
"He's a smart kid and has tremendous football instincts," coach David Smith said. "He's played basketball for years and had great hands for a big guy. He also gets great leverage and understands positioning. Whoever gets him is going to have a steal."
Smith knows talent having turned Klein Oak into one of the first stops for recruiters when they hit Houston. With three major Division I athletes last season and five Division I prospects this season, the Panthers are on a roll.
"He's visiting Purdue in two weeks and he'll get closer then to making a decision," Smith said. "He likes the idea of Purdue but just hasn't been to see it. Rice also offered this week and I know he has some serious interest in the Owls also. Time will tell."
For now, Davis will hope to continue his string of pick-six's. He forgets he's a defensive lineman.
