Clarkston, Ga. - On Saturday following a late-night game which didn't end until 1 a.m., Miami (Fla.) Booker T. Washington four-star defensive back DaVante Davis backed away from comments he made in June about his official visit plans.
In June, he told Rivals.com, "I'm planning on taking my officials to Florida State, Alabama, South Carolina, Ohio State and Florida. I'll also visit Miami but I don't have to use an official to go there because it's right here in the area."
Following Booker T. Washington's 19-7 win over Tucker (Ga.) at Hallford Stadium, the 6-foot-2, 188-pound Davis took to a different tune.
"I never told nobody nothing about official visits, so I don't know where they get that from," Davis said following the game, which was the final of four "Battle of the Borders" games between Georgia and Florida schools. The game started 10:30 p.m. thanks to TV delays and lightning delays after it was originally slated to start at 8 p.m. Hallford Stadium is a 10-hour bus ride from Booker T. Washington's campus.
When asked of any new official visit plans, he responded, "None. I'm more focused on the season right now and helping my team. … I'm most likely going to take some."
Davis wouldn't name any potential official visit destinations, said "nobody" is his leader and that he's "still undecided right now" about when he'd like to reach a decision on which school he'll attend. He cited good relationships with the coaching staff, early playing time and academics as potential deciding factors.
When asked about the five schools he initially named as planned official visits, here's what he had to say:
South Carolina: "Grady Brown - always," he said when asked if he still talks to the Gamecocks. "Out of everyone, I talk to him the most. At least twice a week."
Ohio State: "I don't really talk to them like that anymore. I used to."
Alabama: "I always talk to coach Cristobal. He always talks to my coach too."
Florida State: "I like them. I always talk to coach Brewster. We have a good relationship."
Florida: "I always talk to them. (Our relationship) is pretty good."
Davis is listed in the Rivals.com database as a safety and is the nation's No. 16-ranked player at that position, however on Saturday he said he's exclusively a cornerback.
