Charlotte (N.C.) Phillip Berry Academy of Technology athlete Kedrick Davis added two new offers in the past week. Who are the latest schools to come in for the 5-foot-10, 165-pounder?
"I just got offered by Kentucky on Friday and last week I got Western Michigan too," he said. "I was honored by Western Michigan. I'll definitely take them under consideration. They are rebuilding, but I would have a good chance for a lot of playing time.
"Kentucky, that's a big one. I was actually very excited by it being that it's in the SEC. I've been talking to them for awhile and it's a major consideration. I talked about it with my mom and we think it's a good fit for me. I've always watched Kentucky play football and they run the spread offense, I'd most likely fit into that. They use their slot receivers a lot too. They have shown me a lot of love and I am making plans once we get out of school to visit."

Davis confirms he may not be too far off from a decision.
"I really am close to a decision, I'm thinking by the end of July."
Prior to that, Davis plans to camp at a number of schools.
"I'll be at North Carolina for a two-day camp, NC State, Duke and Kentucky," he said. "They all just send handwritten letters and say I'm high on their list. They all want to see me in action."
Meanwhile, track is keeping Davis busy as he's breaking out to be one of the top track athletes in the state.
"I just finished second in the state overall in the 100 meter," he said. "I've thought about running track in college, but football is my main focus. I love track though and if I had the opportunity to run in college while I'm playing football I'd think I'd do it.
"The only school to mention it so far is Duke. They told me I could do it if I can keep it balanced."
