Southlake LB visits Tech

Southlake (Texas) Carroll linebacker Will Davis made the trip to Lubbock over the weekend to attend Texas Tech's junior day. The relationship between the Red Raiders and the 2012 prospect is a new one, but so far Davis has found some things to like about it.

"I've been talking with Coach Sonny Cumbie. We've got kind of a new relationship," Davis said. "They just got in touch with me not too long ago, so it's just been a little contact back and forth between us since then. I don't know him very well yet, but he seems like a really good guy. All of the coaches I got to be around there all seemed pretty down to earth and up front with what they were all about. I've liked what I've gotten to know about their program so far. "

Davis came to Lubbock not knowing what to expect, but he ended up enjoying the trip. While there, he also got to spend some time with defensive coordinator Chad Glasgow.

"I liked the junior day a lot. I didn't really know what I was getting into, but it turned out be a great trip," he said. "They basically just showed us around their athletic facilities and we got to check out a practice. I met with Coach Glasgow and I thought he was great. I really enjoyed my time with him and I'm hoping I'll have a chance to visit them again soon."

Aside from Tech, Davis indicated that he's hearing from Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, and Oklahoma the most right now. With junior days at Oklahoma and Tech now behind him, he'll turn his sights to a junior day at Kansas State this weekend. It's not clear, however, when he might be ready to make a decision.

"I don't really have a plan for when I'd like to be done with all of this. I'm just looking for the school that fits me the best and when I find it, I'm not going to hesitate to make a decision. I really have no idea when that might be, though."

One thing that may keep the Red Raiders high on the 6-foot-1, 208-pounder's radar, is the connection between he and his former teammate Jackson Richards.

"Jackson and I played on the same team a couple of years ago when he was a senior, so we know each other really well. I got a chance to talk to him some this weekend. It had been a while since I had seen him so I just wanted to catch up with him," Davis said. "We talked some about playing there at Tech and he has really enjoyed it to this point. He wasn't shy in telling me about all of the great things they have going on. I definitely like what I know about their program so far, but we'll see how it works out. Hopefully I'll have another chance to get to Lubbock for a visit."

Davis has been shown interest by Iowa State, Kansas State, Northwestern, Oklahoma, Rice, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Tulsa, and Wisconsin.
