CHOCTAW — Hunter Davis isn't frustrated by the fact that he currently has only two scholarship offers. He's frustrated by the reason why he has only two scholarship offers.

And that frustration has ignited a fire that could be dangerous for anyone in the path of the 6-foot-3, 250-pound defensive end this fall.

Davis, who has outstanding speed for his size, has offers on the table from Tulsa and Kansas State, but he admits his intermittent laziness during games the last two seasons has kept him from getting more.

"It makes me frustrated with myself,” Davis said. "Coaches come and watch me practice, then they go back and watch my game film from last year, and say, 'What we saw on tape doesn't match what we saw in person.'”

They tell Davis his game tape shows him taking plays off, not going hard all the time.

"I don't mean this to sound cocky, but I never felt like I had to play my hardest to dominate a game,” he said. "But this has made me realize all that being lazy stuff has caught up to me.

"I have two offers right now, when I could have 15.”

Choctaw head coach Bill Bays said 20-25 college teams visited to watch Davis during spring practice, and he didn't disappoint.

"He's a very skilled player with a unique combination of size and speed,” Bays said.
