Davis gets offer he's been waiting for

Take one look at Mike Davis' profile and it reads like a who's who of the nation's elite college football programs. Davis has gotten essentially every offer he has hoped for before his junior year is even complete. Heading into the weekend, only two major programs that Davis is interested in have yet to send an offer his way: Florida and USC.

It looks as though it is about to change.

Dallas (Texas) Skyline assistant coach Ronald Bonds confirmed Friday afternoon that an offer from the Florida Gators is on the way.

"Florida just called me and said that they are offering Mike Davis," Coach Bonds said. "He should get it next week."

Davis has stated all along that the Florida offer was something he was hoping for. Now that it has arrived, he is thrilled.

"Yeah I really wanted that one," Davis said. "I really like them a lot also right along with LSU and OU but they are one of my top schools. I think it's a special offer and they only get the best. I can see myself playing there also."

At 6-1 with great hands, speed and sharp route-running, Davis is a wide receiver coach's dream. The Florida offense may also be a wide receiver's dream and Davis is excited about the potential of playing in it.

"I love the offense and it would be a good fit for me and it looks fun to play in," he said.

The only offer left out there that Davis is waiting on is one from Pete Carroll and the Trojans. After that, all that is left is for Davis to take his visits and make his decision.
