Class of 2016 linebacker Ben Davis of Gordo (Ala.) said it's too early in his process to name a top five, but that "all the bigger, D-1 schools" hold his interest, including Alabama, Georgia, Louisville and Mississippi State.
Alabama - where his father played - and Georgia are his most recent offers, bringing his total to nine.
"I haven't put (a top five) together yet," the 6-foot-3, 225-pound Davis said. "I'm going to let the offers keep coming in, wait until my senior season and then commit. But it feels great knowing all the hard work I've put in is paying off," "I'm getting better every day on the field, in the weight room and in the classroom."
Davis' summer has been light, attending camps at Alabama and Auburn. The Tigers are showing interest and could soon offer.
"I'm being recruited by schools as a linebacker but Auburn is looking at me at tight end and linebacker," he said. "They really like me. I did some drills for (defensive coordinatorEllis Johnson) and he tells me to keep my grades up, stay humble and keep working hard."
Davis would like to add offers from "any SEC school," naming LSU, Florida and Missouri, along with Florida State.
Davis doesn't have any planned visits the rest of the summer and has shifted his focus to his junior year.
"I'm going to stick to working out," he said. "I just want to try and help my team win state this year."
Davis finished last season with 8 receiving touchdowns and on defense he had 70 tackles, five interceptions - one returned for a touchdown - and three fumble recoveries. He also blocked a punt and returned that for a touchdown.
