Davis spends the summer camping

Fountain (Colo.) linebacker Kevin Davis has spent his summer putting on the miles and attending camps around the country. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound outside linebacker from Fountain-Fort Carson High School said he holds four scholarship offers after a summer that has seen a heavy football emphasis.

"I went to the Wyoming camp, the National Underclassman, I went to Football University, I went to Air Force, Northern Colorado, Colorado twice, Oregon and I have CSU at the end of the month," Davis said.

"I think my technique is getting better as a linebacker," Davis said. "And it gives the coaches a chance to meet you in-person. The coaches make a big impact on where I go."

Thus far Davis' list of offers includes Northern Colorado, New Mexico, Air Force, Colorado State. Last season Davis accounted for 103 tackles, including 14 for a loss, seven sacks, three fumble recoveries and one interception. He also caught four passes for 85 yards and two scores on offense.

Davis said he has yet to put together a top-3 list and doesn't have any favorites yet. He said he has talked to the New Mexico coaching staff twice and has enjoyed his visit to Northern Colorado. One wildcard in his recruitment is the Air Force Academy, which offers a different life from that of a typical college student.

"It is a totally different set-up," he said of the Air Force. "It seems like the coaches really care for the players a lot and after college you are basically set-up for life. I am definitely thinking about it. I won't be sure if it is for me until I make my final decision."

Davis said that decision is unlikely to come any too soon. For now, he will continue to camp with his high school squad.

"I am just working out with the team right now," Davis said. "We started camp this week. I think we are going to be a quick team again. We have some younger players but we will be pretty good."
