Wide receiver Fred Davis of Toledo (Oh.) Rogers is one of the most highly coveted prospects in the nation. While he doesn't have a leader, he is impressed by a school out west.
"I still don't really have a leader," said Davis. "But the trip to Southern Cal at the first of this month was real cool. It was an environment that was new -- something that's really different from the other schools I've seen. I like their offense and the coaching staff thinks I could be a go-to guy. The school was really good. It's a place you would want to go even if you weren't going to play football, for the academics and the atmosphere."
The 6-foot-4, 210-pound receiver / safety runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds and is obviously impressed with the Trojans. Who else is in the mix?
"Ohio State is the in-state school and they've got a great football program," he said. "Coach Tressell has established a winning attitude there and the school is really good. Miami has struggled for a couple of weeks in a row now, but they're still Miami. They're going to be real good for a long time. Florida has turned things around and I'm impressed with everything I've seen about the school. Oklahoma and Pitt are up there too. I like Oklahoma because they've got the best team in the country right now, and Pitt does a great job of preparing receivers for the NFL."
Davis will be taking an official visit to Ohio State on Dec. 5 and will visit Miami on Dec. 19. When will he make his decision?
"I'm going to announce my college choice during the U.S. Army All-American game. That way there will be a big audience and people will tune in," he laughed. "I should have my decision ready by then."
