Anthony Davis a 5-foot-11, 235-pound fullback from Our Lady Good Counsel HS, Wheaton Md., was Connecticut’s second verbal commitment for the ’06 recruiting class. Despite his commitment there are still some programs trying to sway him.
“Everything has been great since I committed to UConn. West Virginia, Kansas State, and North Carolina State are continuing to recruit me, but I feel confident with UConn,” Davis said.
The Scout.com two-star prospect also recently took his official visit to UConn, and like many other recruits that have recently visited the campus he also came away with some glowing remarks about the coaching staff, the facilities, and the academics that the Huskies have to offer.
“I went up there two weeks ago. On a scale of one to ten, I would give it a perfect ten!”, said Davis.
“I was impressed with the campus and the business program that they offer there. I had an academic meeting and that went well. I really got along great with all the players. The facilities they are building are amazing. It looks really nice from what I have seen so far.”
Davis also got along very well with his player host, Donald Brown, and he got an early start by learning what it is all about to be a player at UConn.
“Donald Brown was my host and he was really cool. He showed me the things that I need to work on to be successful at UConn. He also showed me around the campus and let me know what was nice about it. He chose UConn because they are an up and coming program and he told me that UConn is the place to be right now -- and I agree,” Davis said.
Davis had a strong senior season on both sides of the ball. On offense, he rushed for approximately 550 yards and scored ten touchdowns. Defensively, he had 85 tackles and seven sacks. Despite the impressive defensive performance, there is no doubt where he will wind up in college.
“The coaching staff is concentrating on me at fullback,” Davis said.
After talking with Davis, there is little doubt that he will be signing with the Huskies come National Letter Of Intent Day.
