Skyline's Davis Changes Commitment

Highly touted receiver changes from LSU to Texas commitment

    Mike Davis has changed his allegiance from LSU to Texas.

    Dallas Skyline wide receiver Mike Davis, one of the top recruits in all of DFW regardless of position, has changed his oral commitment that he made back in the spring.

    The Class 5A Associated Press All-State first-team selection was all set to "geaux" to LSUbut changed his commitment last week to the Texas Longhorns, according to my boy Matt Wixon of The Dallas Morning News, who by the way, I edged out to win the season pick line for The Dallas Morning News high school season. Holla atcha boy.

    Oral commitments are nonbinding. The first day a Class of 2010 recruit can sign a national letter of intent is Feb. 3.

    Davis played only eight games in the regular season, but that was still enough to get him on the first-team all-state team, which uses only regular-season performance as basis for voting. He finished the regular season with 721 yards and 13 touchdowns on only 28 catches, for an incredible average of nearly 26 yards per catch.

    For 13 games before Skyline was eliminated from the playoffs, Davis caught 48 balls for 1,157 yards and 19 touchdowns.

    "I like Texas," Davis told the Morning News. "Throwing the ball around like that, I can do great things there."
