Davis returns from Iowa
It is not often an out of state prospect gets to visit a college for an entire week, but that is exactly what Michigan defensive tackle Carl Davis did at Iowa. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound Davis spent the past week visiting his uncle, Rich Walker, in Iowa City and each day made his way to Hayden Fry football complex to learn more about the Hawkeyes. We caught up with Davis to find out more about the visit and get the latest on his recruiting.
Q: Are you on your way back home from Iowa?
DAVIS: Yeah, actually I'm on the train still. I rode out there with my uncle, but I'm taking the train back up to Detroit.
Q: Were you out there all week?
DAVIS: Yeah, I was there all week since Monday and I just left today.
Q: What all did you get to do?
DAVIS: I got to meet with almost every one of the coaches, I got to watch practice, and just got to look around more to get a better feel for it.
Q: Did you head over there every day?
DAVIS: Yeah, I was there every day with the coaches. I went down there for two hours every day and we did something new every day. Like I had a meeting with one of the coaches and then I'd go look around the weight room. The next day, I'd go to Kinnick Stadium and look around. They just showed me around.
Q: What was it like as you got to learn more about it?
DAVIS: I got to learn a lot about them. It's a very interesting place. Everybody was very nice in the community and everything. I just enjoyed myself. It's just a beautiful place to be. It felt great because I haven't done that with any other school where I got to stay a week there. It was all good.
Q: Was that their very first practice that you went to?
DAVIS: Yeah, I watched practice on Friday and that was their first one.
Q: What did you think?
DAVIS: I liked what they run. I talked to the coaches and I love the defense they run. I think that fits me well and I can see myself being there and fitting in with the program. I sat down with Coach K and we watched some film and I just felt good about it.
