"I have a good knowledge of the game," Days said. "I can recognize what the defense will do. When I am on defense I can recognize what the offense will do. I also have good leadership skills and get all As and Bs."
So far this summer has been a busy one. Just in the month of June Days has camped at seven schools.

"It's been an excellent summer with camps and working out with my teammates. I have already camped at Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, Georgia, Virginia Tech, Oklahoma State, North Carolina and N.C. State. It was fun because I got to see all the different coaching styles. Plus, all these places are different. I mean on one weekend you see Stillwater and the next it's Atlanta."
According to Days he currently holds scholarship offers from Georgia Tech, Oklahoma State, Indiana, Eastern Michigan and Toledo.
"Those schools are my leaders, the ones that have offered me. Georgia Tech likes me at quarterback. We run the triple option as well so it's the same offense. I like the coaches because they are so open and honest.
"The facilities at Oklahoma State are simply amazing. I mean amazing. I also love coach (Glenn) Spencer who is recruiting me for Oklahoma State. He's an amazing person.
"I am going to try and get to Indiana. They send me a ton of mail and seem very interested in me. They are recruiting me as an athlete.
"Eastern Michigan and Toledo both offered me as a quarterback. In fact, Toledo was my first offer at quarterback. I will try and get up there to. Those coaches seem real nice. So do the coaches at Eastern Michigan. They are running a spread this season as well."
Days also said that there are a few teams that could offer soon. Who are they?
N.C. State, Wake Forest, and North Carolina are recruiting me hard but none have offered yet. Maybe soon. We'll see."
