DAVIE, Fla. - Lauderdale Lakes (Fla.) Boyd Anderson's Kameron Davis, a 6-foot-5, 285-pound offensive lineman, participated in Sunday's Miami Under Armour Combine at the Miami Dolphin Training Facility in Davie, Fla. He was glad to get the opportunity to learn from the staff at the event and then compete against a number of different defensive linemen.
"It has been a great experience," Davis said. "It has been a great opportunity to meet new people and compete against them."
At this point, the South Florida offensive lineman holds one offer.
"I have one from Illinois," Davis said. "I am expecting one from Miami and FSU when I go to their Junior Days."
Davis planned to step on campus at both of those schools within the next seven days.
"I am going to the Miami Junior Day after this," Davis said on Sunday afternoon. "Next week I am going to Florida State."
As for the Fighting Illini, they extended their offer nearly a year ago.
"Illinois offered me last spring," Davis said. "I just know the coach is named Joe Gilbert. I talked to him a few weeks back and he just told me he would be really happy to have me. I just have to make it up there to check them out. I just have to try to find a way to get up there."
With regards to the two in-state schools, he has family ties to both.
"My dad's favorite team is the Hurricanes and my mom's alma mater is Florida State," Davis said.
He has yet to meet Art Kehoe, who Al Golden recently hired to be the Hurricanes offensive line coach. He has heard a bit about Kehoe's interest in getting to know him.
"I haven't spoke with him yet," Davis said. "But I have been told that he is happy to meet me. I am looking forward to talking with him."
At Florida State, he has talked to his area recruiter.
"I have spoken with Coach (Eddie) Gran, the running backs coach," Davis said. "He said he likes my film a lot. He said the next stage is getting to know me and my family more."
When asked if an offer from Miami or Florida State would lead him to put an immediate end to the process, Davis said that was unlikely.
"I am going to take a little bit of time with this whole process," Davis said.
