Cleveland (OH) Glenville has established a reputation as one of the heaviest recruited high schools in the country, sending numerous athletes to Division-I schools on a yearly basis. Wide receiver Nick Davis just might elect to not attend one of these schools, and could decide his future could best be served at Yale University. Bill Greene has the latest on Davis.

Cleveland Glenville's Nick Davis has not received his first Division-I offer yet, but he might have the opportunity to reach even higher than playing at one of the famous football factories across the country.

Davis, a 5-foot-10, 165-pound, wide receiver, was contacted last week by Yale University, and there is a process in the works that could enable him to attend this storied institution.

"Yale is definitely a school I'm looking at with great interest, right now, because of their academic reputation," Davis said of this opportunity. "For me, and my family, it's all about academics. Coach (Ted) Ginn always tells us how much more important education is, than football, and I've always believed that."

"They called Coach Ginn about me, and he sent them my transcript, and my test scores," he continued. "Then they came all the way to the school to sit down with me, and explain what Yale University is all about. They told me I can be a four-year starter at Yale, and also leave there with a tremendous degree. Hopefully, if things get worked out financially, we can make this happen, and I will definitely continue to pursue this option."

Several other schools have been in contact, and Davis is also interested in playing for a Division-I program, should things not materialize at Yale.

"I'm hearing from Oregon, Cincinnati, West Virginia and North Carolina," he stated. "My film is just being sent out, and I'm expecting to hear from other schools. I was invited down to Ohio State's junior day, and Michigan State's, also. I have a great relationship with Ohio State, and assistant coach Taver Johnson. Ball State and Toledo are two schools that have taken a lot of Glenville guys, and both have been in contact with me, so we just have to see how all this shakes out."

Davis attended the National Junior Combine in San Antonio last month, along with several of his Glenville teammates, and had an excellent performance.

"The Junior Combine in San Antonio was a great event, and it's always good to be competing against the best," he stated. "It's so well organized, they treat us all so good, and I really appreciated having the chance to go there. I thought I played really well, as did several of us from Glenville, and I loved the competition. I think we proved that Glenville athletes can compete anywhere."
