But to amplify … I saw Keenan Davis of Cedar Rapids Washington play one time last fall. One time. It was enough. He runs, he leaps, he catches. He had the game-winning TD grab with 7.7 seconds left in that game, a Warriors 34-28 victory over Cedar Rapids Kennedy that ranks as one of the best prep games I’ve ever witnessed.
Davis had 13 receptions that night, for 137 yards and three TDs. If you didn’t walk away from that game knowing Iowa absolutely could not let this kid get away, a la former Washington receiver Adrian Arrington, you weren’t paying attention.
Davis is 6-foot-3. He busted three punt returns for touchdowns last season. On defense, he had five interceptions. I’ve heard no one utter a bad word about him as a person.
