2010 receiver has four BCS offers

The offers continue to stream in for one of the top wide receiver prospects in the state of Texas for the 2010 class. Dallas (Texas) Skyline wide receiver Mike Davis had a season as a sophomore that foreshadowed some heavy college interest. In 2007, he caught 23 passes for 469 yards and four touchdowns, averaging over 20 yards per catch. Already well past his sophomore totals, Davis can now add four official offers to his resume.

Davis' first offer came from the University of Oklahoma where 2009 teammate Steve Williams is committed as a cornerback. Shortly thereafter, Iowa offered followed by Texas Tech and most recently Stanford.

"I just got an offer from Stanford," Davis said on Wednesday. "I know they're looking for receivers to get the ball. I don't know too much about them. I know they've got a good education and a good school. The offer was kind of out of the blue."

Coach Harbaugh has made Texas a priority since his hiring, with three high-profile commits out of the state in the class of 2009 as well as a nationally recruited quarterback, Andrew Luck, on campus out of the 2008 class from Houston.

The Texas Tech offer was also of interest to Davis because of the high-powered offense in Lubbock, Texas.

"Texas Tech, that's one of the offers that I wanted," he said. "It's a top choice of mine. They distribute the ball to every receiver they have up there. Everybody touches the ball. They throw the ball 70 percent of the time and I want the ball."

Some other schools that have been showing Davis interest have been Texas, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and Oregon.
