Standout DL has Cane offer and UM in the lead

West Monroe, La., High School DL Luther Davis received a scholarship offer from Miami last Tuesday.

"Coach (Joe) Pannunzio; he recruits this area," Davis said. "He texted me asking me to call him; I gave him a call, we had started spring ball last week. I spoke with him; he let me talk with coach (Randy) Shannon. He told me how they saw my highlight tape and loved it, raved about it. He told me how excited they are that I'm interested in them — I grew up liking Florida State and Miami even though I'm in Louisiana.

"I told them my favorite player of all time is Sean Taylor. They were amazed by that also. They were asking if I'd want to commit. I said I want to play my senior year, focus on winning a state championship. They said they understand that."

UM followed up by sending Davis a written scholarship offer.

Davis says the Canes are his current frontrunner.
