North Texas joined the race for the 6-foot-1, 185-pound pass-catcher, he announced on his Twitter account.
"Picked up a offer from North Texas today!" Davis said around 6:15 p.m. Tuesday.
Davis, rated as a three-star prospect by Scout.com, is the second player from the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex to receive a North Texas offer this week.
North Forney 2015 athlete Hunter Herndon picked up a North Texas offer Monday night after he committed to Rice earlier that day following the Owls issuing him his first offer. The 6-foot-4, 238-pound Herndon plays quarterback for North Forney, but most likely projects as a tight end at the college level.
There's little doubt where Davis winds up on the field. He had a strong year in DeSoto's deep and talented receiving corps this past fall, finishing with 34 catches for 395 yards and six touchdowns. He was third in receptions and second in receiving touchdowns for an offense that averaged 497.6 yards and 52.1 points per game as DeSoto went 14-1 and reached the Class 5A Division I state semifinals.
North Texas has offered about a dozen receivers in the 2015 class. Five of those reside in the DFW Metroplex: Davis, Dallas Skyline's Carlos Strickland and Savon Rollinson, Aledo's Ryan Newsome, and Celina's Cash Conder.
Despite those offers, receiver is probably not a pressing recruiting need for the Mean Green in this cycle. North Texas signed four receivers in its 2014 class: Carthage (Tx.) receiver Terian Goree and teammate O'Keeron Rutherford, as well as Dallas South Oak Cliff's Fonzale Davis and Moore (Okla.) Southmoore's Jalen Adams.
Sulphur Springs (Tx.) athlete Willy Ivery also signed with the Mean Green. While he played running back in high school, he's the type of versatile playmaker who could be moved around the formation for the Mean Green, which used a similar player -- outgoing senior Brelan Chancellor -- to great success the past couple of seasons.
