ATH Ryan Davis has 2015 FSU offer


Florida State has two commitments for the class of 2015 already, the most of any team in the country, and has begun to lay the groundwork for more.

Ryan Davis (St. Petersburg, Fla./Northeast), a 5-foot-11, 160-pound athlete, already has an offer from the Seminoles and Arizona. He's not exactly ready to jump in the boat like Derwin James and DeAndre Johnson just yet, though.

"It is pretty good," Davis said of his recruitment process. "I am just taking it in one step at a time. I am really just trying to see where everything goes. Even though I am just a sophomore, I am just trying to play hard and see how everything turns out.

"I haven't been talking to anyone else, really. I still have been getting camp letters of people trying to get me to their camps. Nebraska sent me some letters, Miami had sent me some letters, but I am just taking it all in and seeing where everything is going."

Lawrence Dawsey, the Seminoles wide receiver coach and recruiting assistant for the Tampa Bay area, is leading the process for FSU with Davis. The two already have an established relationship and Davis respects Dawsey for his track record.

"He's a great guy," Davis mentioned. "He is a very nice person. He treats me like I am family and he tells me he wants to recruit me and he knows what he is talking about."

Davis leads his team under center as an explosive athlete, but that likely isn't where his future is calling. Receiver, cornerback or something of the like could be his future destination.

At the college level, Davis doesn't really care where he ends up. He just wants to help his team as best he can.

"I have thought about it, but I am just going to let it play out," he said. "I play quarterback for my team, but if they take me as a cornerback, athlete or whatever. I will do whatever.

"I feel like I can play any position that they need me to play, whatever I need to do for the team."

Though his fall will be busy with his own schedule, two in-state schools appear in line to get unofficial visits from Davis. FSU, as one of the two teams to offer, will obviously get one. Their arch rival, Florida, could be the other.

"I might attend some Florida State games," Davis began. "Maybe check on some Florida games. I have a cousin, Dante Fowler, and I might go watch him to support him."

Specific numbers or statistics haven't been decided upon in terms of Davis' goals for the season. He figures with lots of yards will come success with his eyes trained on the possibility to win districts and advance to the playoffs.
