TAMU OT commit Davis staying busy
By Sam Khan Jr.
Texas A&M's two junior days this year have been productive, yielding four commitments for the Class of 2014.
It was on the Aggies' first junior day of the year (Jan. 27) that 2014 offensive tackle Kealvin Davis pledged to the maroon and white.
When Texas A&M offered Irving, Texas, offensive tackle Kealvin Davis during its first junior day on Jan. 27, he jumped on it and committed to the Aggies that same day.
Since then, Davis has been keeping busy, doing his offseason football work and throwing discus and shotput for Garland (Texas) Lakeview Centennial's track and field squad.
"It's been going great," Davis said. "Things are going well, offseason is going well."
The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Davis said he's working on many areas to improve for the 2013 football season.
"I'm doing more plyo, bending hips, footwork, speed, lateral quickness and [working on] my flexibility in my hips," Davis said.
He's still getting letters from other schools but remains solidly committed to Texas A&M. He said the Aggies have sent him plenty of mail and he makes sure to keep in touch with his area recruiter, Texas A&M receivers coach and recruiting coordinator David Beaty.
"They've definitely been keeping in touch with me, sending me letters, and I've been keeping in touch with Coach Beaty a lot," Davis said. "He's just excited and fired up about getting me down there. He's excited to see me again as everyone else is."
Davis hasn't attended a spring practice at Texas A&M yet, but he said he plans to attend the Aggies' spring football game on April 13. He is also getting ready for his own spring practice at Lakeview Centennial.
"We've got some unfinished business," Davis said. "We've got some things to take care of. ... I'm anxious, I'm ready."
