Davis lays out UCLA offer
Andrew Davis worked out at UCLA this summer and he thinks that was the key to him landing his first offer from the Bruins.
The Upland, Calif., defensive back developed a relationship with position coach Demetrice Martin in the last few weeks after performing so well and now UCLA is a legitimate option for him, no doubt his top option at this point.
"If I didn't go to that skills camp I don't think my name would ever be out there because I've been flying under the radar for a while," Davis said.
"I went out to that skills camp and I did my thing out there. I ended up with defensive MVP and then (Martin) noticed me right away. After that we started building a relationship, we kept talking and after that I got invited to a couple more of their workouts and we built a relationship over time."
Last week, Davis called Martin to see where things stood in the process and the UCLA assistant coach decided to give him the good news that he wanted to offer.
The Upland standout was thrilled to hear UCLA was now on board and there's no question the Bruins look great in his recruitment at this point but Davis also wants to play out his senior season a little bit before making any final decisions.
"I actually called him and we got to talking a little bit and it just came out," Davis said. "He said he's going to go ahead and offer me and he can't wait anymore. It's crazy. It's like a life-changing experience.
"It's huge. I'm still open to other colleges. I'm going into my senior year so I don't know how this is going to go exactly. Coach Martin told me it's going to get pretty hectic. I'm open to anything but UCLA is definitely at the top right now."
Other than the first offer from the Bruins, Davis said he's been hearing from UNLV, Portland State, Northern Arizona and Sacramento State.
