Gladewater running back Corey Davis has high hopes for his official visit this weekend and if all…
East Texas Star on the Rise
Gladewater High is home to one of the more under the radar prospects in the country. All you need to do is check out his film (below) to verify this is true. There are no stars next to his name, but that did not keep him from rushing for over 1,700 yards and 28 touchdowns to earn All-State honors. "My game is simple," Corey Davis began to explain as he recapped his skill set. "When I see a hole I am hitting it hard, no tip toeing. I am hitting the hole full speed and I am getting straight up the field." Davis is not a household name in recruiting circles across the country, but schools like Wyoming, Washington State and Tulsa were hot on his trail and have all offered or indicated an offer is there for him if he makes it in for a visit. But right now things are looking good for Pittsburgh, who now has a staff that he had already built a relationship with while they were at Tulsa recruiting him. He is all set to take his visit official visit to the school next weekend. "I'm looking forward to getting over there and seeing what it is all about. I think it's a place I will feel comfortable at." "I got a back-up plan too, Criminal Justice. If football does not work out then I want to do something with that." Like many other East Texas running backs Davis, a Scout.com three-star prospect, grew up idolizing Adrian Peterson who starred in high school at Palestine High and in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl before signing with Oklahoma. "Adrian Peterson," Davis said when asked about his idols on the field. "He is one of the only ones to come from East Texas and managed to get out and make it in the NFL for the Minnesota Vikings. I look forward to meeting him one day." Davis would love to walk a similar path and he will leave the state to play his college ball, but he knows he has a lot of work in front of him to get his game to that level. The Pitt visit is the only one that Davis has scheduled at this time. Davis also has a twin brother, Courtney Davis (5'11, 175), who is getting looks from D1 schools like Colorado, Louisiana Tech, Pitt and ULM.
