Metroplex 2014 lineman takes in Texas

Garland (Texas) Lakeview Centennial 2014 offensive tackle Kealvin Davis goes by the nickname "Tank" and is making a name for himself as an imposing presence on the football field.

Standing 6-4 and 265 pounds, he recently attended his first camp of the summer when he made his way to Austin for a Texas Longhorns one-day mini-camp.

"It was real good," Davis said. "It was a great experience knowing that's where I want to. I wanted to take advantage of it."

What did he do in order to take advantage of his trip to the University of Texas?

"Showing that I want to be there and I can work," he said. "I can do anything they ask me to and I'm willing to do it."

Not only did Davis work on offense at offensive tackle, but he also worked at defensive end on Sunday. He felt he performed well and learned a lot at both positions. While working at offensive tackle he liked how offensive line coach Stacy Searels taught the line and enjoyed the learning experience.

"It was different and new and a good thing all at the same time," Davis said of working with Searels. "I saw some things I needed to improve on and did some things I've never done before that will help improve my game. It was a big help."

He also enjoyed his time working under the direction of defensive ends coach Oscar Giles.

"That was different too. We did some things that I've never done before. It was real helpful," he said. "He just let me know to keep up the good work and he liked what he saw and was glad I came."

Overall, Davis had a great time in Austin but there was one thing about the day that stood above the rest.

"The workout, it was real good. I loved it," he said. "The way they always have you moving. I like to stay moving. It was real nice."

So, where do the Longhorns stand following his visit?

"They're No. 1," Davis said. "They're at the top of the list."

In addition to Texas, Davis said he has received interest from Baylor, Texas A&M, Oregon, Kansas, Nebraska, and Oklahoma, with Baylor and Texas A&M showing the most interest. Up next Davis says he plans to camp at Texas A&M.
