Football Recruiting

Marcus Davis: Plenty to Choose From

In recent years, Texas, Texas A&M, LSU and Oklahoma are the four schools that have had the most success recruiting in the Lone Star State. When all four of these schools are trying to get you to come to their junior day, you must be doing something right. That is exactly the case for Clear Creek defensive back Marcus Davis. Find out where Davis is heading inside.
Clear Creek’s Marcus Davis may just be the best 2009 defensive back prospect in the state of Texas. As a junior, he recorded 47 tackles and two interceptions on his way to earning First Team All-District Defensive Back honors.

Those statistics speak for themselves, but his kick return numbers may have been more impressive. He took two kickoffs back to the house and averaged over 45 yards per return on his way to being named First Team All-District Return Specialist as well.

The 6-foot-0, 190-pound Davis currently holds two Big 12 offers and has already formulated a top five.

“I’ve got offers right now from Oklahoma and Texas A&M,” Davis said.

“No school is actually standing our right now, but I have narrowed it down to a top five,” Davis said. “Right now, my top five are LSU, OU, UT, A&M and USC.”

Junior days are right around the corner and Davis has received invites from four of his top five schools.

“I’ve been invited to a couple of them,” Davis said. “I’ve been invited to Texas, OU, LSU and A&M.”

Davis is going to try to make each of the junior days that he has received an invite to but couldn’t think of the dates off the top of his head.

Davis has the size and the skill set to play both corner and safety, which could make him a very attractive prospect for schools around the country.

“A lot of schools are telling me that I could end up at corner or safety. They are not really recruiting me for one specific position,” Davis said.

Just about every college prospect sets goals for improving their overall game between their junior and senior seasons and Davis is no different.

“My coverage could always get better. I have pretty good coverage skills right now, but I could work on my back-peddle, my coverage skills and get faster and stronger,” Davis said.

Texas’ upcoming junior day is set for February 10th.
