Blue Springs twin defensive linemen Khalil and Carlos Davis figure to be two of the more heavily recruited football players in Kansas City from the Class of 2015.

Let the games begin.

The Davis twins, who played key roles in Blue Springs' second straight Missouri Class 6 state title, picked up offers from Nebraska on Thursday, according to

They were each previously offered by Missouri, and more Division I schools are likely to join the fray.

Khalil totaled 62 tackles — including 26 for loss — this season, adding four sacks. Carlos had 62 tackles and 3.5 sacks. Both started on the interior defensive line.

Khalil and Carlos have expressed a desire to attend the same school, though neither is in a rush to make a commitment.
