Skyline Receiver Geauxing to LSU

Top junior Davis gives commitment to Tigers.

Well, another one of our top Class of 2010 recruits has found his future college home, and this time he's headed out of state to the bayou, as reported by Damon Sayles of The Dallas Morning News.

Dallas Skyline receiver Mike Davis has chosen LSU and gave his verbal commitment  to Les Miles and the Tigers after a weekend trip to Baton Rouge for the Tigers' junior day. The first day a 2010 recruit can sign a national letter of intent is Feb. 3, 2010.

He finished his junior season with 58 catches for 1,138 yards and 16 touchdowns for Skyline, for an eye-popping average of 19.6 yards per reception. As was mentioned before, Davis is a freaky athlete with good size. He runs a 4.48 40-yard dash and can jump out of the gym, where he also is a hoopster for Skyline.

He did all of that while leading Skyline to the Class 5A state quarterfinals, quite a feat for a receiver in a traditionally strong run-based offense. Davis is one of those kids that's talented enough to make coaches, such as Skyline coach Reginald Samples, get him the ball.

"I had a great time there. They really took care of me," Davis told the Morning News. "Everybody really made me feel at home, and that's where I felt like I needed to be."
