Rivals100 OT has a half dozen offers

Piscataway, N.J. is home to two big-time Division I prospects in 2007 including offensive tackle Anthony Davis. The 6-foot-6, 305-pounder with 5.2-second speed has a half dozen offers and interest from some of the top schools in the country.
"Anthony has received offers so far from Maryland, Rutgers, Boston College, Illinois, West Virginia and Virginia that I know of," said Piscataway head coach Dan Higgins. "Besides those schools, he is getting interest from pretty much everyone in the top 25 including USC who has just started."
Does Davis have an early favorite?
"I don't see any early favorites for him," he said. "He's keeping all his options open right now, but he's a guy that will do his homework and follow all the teams. He keeps track of their personnel and such. It should be real interesting to see where he ends up."
The Rivals100 prospect grew up playing basketball, but made the transition to football in high school.
"He's much better developed in his lower body and has tremendous hips and quickness because of basketball," he said. "He's just started hitting the weights and when he gets his upper body to be as developed he'll be the complete package.
"He's a physical beast and easily the most athletic big man I've seen. He has great feet and a wonderful first step that is quick. Besides that, he runs the field very well and will run downfield to make two or three blocks on a play. He goes out and does more than just the minimum and really focuses on technique."
Davis was named all-state and all-county as a junior.
