It appears Kansas football wide receivers coach Emmett Jones is back to work following his interim duties. One of Dallas’ most talented corners, Anthony Davis, is scheduled to make his Kansas visit in June.

Davis, a Dallas native, has seen interest from SMU, Baylor, and Colorado programs. While the Jayhawks’ program may not be the most attractive of the candidates, there is a connection between Coach Jones and Davis.

Jones had previously coached at Skyline High School as the offensive coordinator for five years, before Davis’ arrival. However, their communication has been positive and they’ve built a decent relationship as well.

In conversations with JayhawkSlant, Davis has expressed his interest in college visits and is eager to see what Kansas can offer to him, which will be a determinate factor in whether or not he’ll land in Lawrence.

Davis’ junior year highlights are worth a look. He’s a quick-footed defender that can make strong reads. Along with his ability to keep up with receivers, he can win tight battles in the air.

Finding reliable defenders can be a struggle for any program, however, building skill with someone like Davis could be a major win for Kansas. There’s room to grow and the potential output could be a real asset to this defense.

Recent years have not been the kindest to the Kansas defense, which has included the lack of defending the air. While the Jayhawks have heavy promise in returning sophomore Karon Prunty, there is room for more support defensively.

Davis is set to visit Kansas following his stop at Pac-12 member Colorado. Ideally, his relationship with Jones and the new Lance Leipold staff could end up making a strong impression on the prospective corner before his senior year.
