Four-star wide receiver Keenan Davis was among the visitors at Iowa's big junior day last week. The 6-foot-3, 195-pound Davis, who attends Cedar Rapids Washington, has been a frequent visitor to Iowa City, but this time around had the chance to watch the Hawkeyes work in spring practice.

Davis, who the Hawkeyes offered nearly a year ago, has gotten to know new wide receivers coach Erik Campbell pretty well since he joined the Iowa coaching staff in February. The junior day visit allowed the highly ranked prospect to watch Campbell at work with his players.

In addition to making several visits in recent months, Davis stays in regular contact with the Iowa coaching staff. In fact, the four-star prospect receives a handwritten letter from the coaches every day.
