Last Thursday, Stephenville safety Cody Davis could not say enough positive things after visiting Lubbock for the second time during his recruiting process. Monday night, the 6-foot-2, 205-pound defensive back knew that the time had come.
"I met up with my head coach and we talked it over," said Davis. "After the visit and after I looked through Texas Tech I really liked what I saw and I decided to verbally commit to Texas Tech and be a Red Raider."
Along with Stephenville athletic director and head coach Chad Morris, Davis began spreading the news.
"First off, I called Coach Mainord and told him that I wanted to be a Red Raider and he was all fired up and we talked a little bit and he gave me Coach Leach's number. I called Coach Leach and he's out in New Mexico looking at lights that are supposedly UFO's. After I told him that I was a Red Raider, he said it made his day, and I think they're all excited."
Red Raider fans should be excited as well now that Davis has chosen Tech over six other offers.
"I've been thinking a lot about it and I've had the final decision on my mind and have been going through to see if that was the final decision and if I could see myself there. It met all my standards and what I was looking for and I felt at home there."
Now that the stud safety does not have to worry about finding a future school any longer, what's Davis going to focus on now?
"Just start summer workouts and get better. I might go out to Tech a few times and go out to the one day camp. I am going to talk to the coaches more and just get to know the program better."
Picking up their 7th commitment of the 2008 class was the perfect way for the Tech coaching staff and fan base to wrap up their Memorial Day holiday weekend.
"As of right now I'm 100% committed and I really think that it's the best school for me and everything fits."
