High school football prospects who end up signing to play at Western Michigan likely do so just to play the game, with any notoriety coming as a result of which being an added bonus. Broncos wide receiver Corey Davis, however, could be breaking that mold.
Per a report from Charlie Campbell of WalterFootball, there is significant draft buzz building around Davis. Some scouts even believe that if he keeps playing as well as he has, he could end up being selected as early as Day 2, much like fellow Western Michigan great Greg Jennings.
A junior who previously starred at Illinois’s Wheaton-Warrenville South High School, near Chicago, Davis has great size for his position at 6-foot-3, 205 pounds and has caught 18 passes for 309 yards and three touchdowns. Since arriving in Kalamazoo, he has posted 163 receptions for 2,658 yards for 24 touchdowns.
Davis will have a big opportunity to show the world what he can do this weekend, as Western Michigan is set to take on Ohio State in a game that will be nationally televised. If he can create some separation and stuff the stat sheet, either in victory or defeat, it’s going to be hard to not pay attention to him for the rest of the season.
That said, be sure to tune in to ABC at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday and take in the player who could, easily, become one of the most under-the-radar draft prospects of 2016.
