Hawkeyes Remain Frontrunners

Although he says he's still very open, Keenan Davis continues to favor Iowa slightly over Arizona State, Illinois, Colorado and Oklahoma. "Iowa is probably recruiting me the most. They send me personal letters everyday and even write my parents too. I really like everything about Iowa. I love the Jacobson Center. It's a multi-million dollar football center. I love it and I've been there..."

Keenan Davis, the 6-foot-3, 195-pound four-star wide receiver from George Washington High School in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, says he plans on making a decision before the start of his senior season and continues to focus on five schools.

Although he says he's still very open, Davis says he's still favoring Iowa slightly over Arizona State, Illinois, Colorado and Oklahoma. All of his favorites have offered. He also has offers from Nebraska, Kansas, Cincinnati, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

"Iowa is probably recruiting me the most," Davis said. "They send me personal letters everyday and even write my parents too.

"I really like everything about Iowa," he said. "I love the Jacobson Center. It's a multi-million dollar football center. I love it and I've been there a lot so I know my way around and know where everything is. I feel real comfortable there and have a good relationship with the whole staff."

Davis, ranked as the No. 20 wide receiver in the country by Scout.com, grew up following the Hawkeyes.

"Iowa is the only school I've actual been to and seen," Davis said. "I'm gonna try and visit some of these schools within the next month because I'd like to decide before the season starts. I want a school where I can have a good social life and have fun, but also play for coaches that I get along with."

Davis's former teammate, Maurice Cantrell, plays fullback for Colorado. "He's doesn't really give me any advice," he said. "But he liked Colorado. He just says not to stress about it."

Another Big 12 school that Davis is considering is Oklahoma. "I really like the tradition at Oklahoma," he said. "They are a top program every year, but I haven't really gotten to know the coaches very well yet."

One coach that Davis has developed a good relationship with is Illinois head coach Ron Zook. "I like coach Zook a lot," he said. "I like how honest and straightforward he is. He's just a straight shooter. Also the team is definitely heading in the right direction."

If time permits, Davis says he'd like to visit Arizona State this summer as well. "My coach went there and he's told me a lot about them," he said. "I've heard it's a real nice place and I'd like to go check them out for myself."

Besides playing football, Davis admits he's a huge college football fan. "I love watching college football on Saturdays," he said. "But I just watch for fun. I'm not big on predictions or analyzing teams and stuff."

He reports a 2.5 core GPA and is awaiting his results of the June ACT.
