New interest intrigues Davis

MIAMI, Fla. - Running back Imani Davis holds a number of small school scholarship offers, but just one BCS-level school has stepped forth so far to offer the Miami (Fla.) Belen Jesuit product.
"I have some smaller ones right now, but the only big one is Kansas State," Davis said.
The offer from Bill Snyder's team came many months ago.
"They offered in the spring," Davis said.
The 5-foot-10, 165-pound back has yet to make his way to Manhattan, but that will change in a few weeks.
"I am going up on a visit in January, so we will see," Davis said. "I think I am going up there on January 13th."
While Kansas State is his only major offer, Davis has drawn some significant recent interest.
"A lot of people came through the last few weeks and showed a lot of interest - Texas Tech, Northwestern, and Ohio State."
Out of those schools showing recent interest, Davis has a great deal of interest in Ohio State. He has heard from assistant coach Stan Drayton.
"They like the way I run," Davis said of the Buckeyes. "I fit into their offensive scheme, kind of like a Chris Rainey-type. I can catch it out of the backfield, run downhill."
If Urban Meyer and company step up with an offer, it is very likely Davis plays his college football in Columbus.
"I would definitely go there," Davis said."All of their coaches are from Florida and they are going to run a spread (offense). That would be perfect."
"They are basically bringing Florida to Ohio State," Davis added. "That (Florida) was always my number one school to go to because of my size and because of the way I play. Hopefully I go there."
Davis also holds an offer from New Hampshire and plans to visit their campus on January 27th.
