Delray Beach (Fla.) American Heritage athlete Marcus Davis will visit West Virginia officially this weekend for their match up against Kansas State. This will be his second official visit following a trip to Winston-Salem last month to check out Wake Forest.
Those are the two schools that stand out the most to the playmaking quarterback. Illinois and Purdue are trying to get him up to their campuses, respectively but they haven't had much luck.
Davis likes the Demon Deacon coaching staff and was impressed when he spent time with them on his visit. He said, "It was great. I talked to all of the coaches and it was good to meet them all in person."

He has good relationship with his area recruiter, Ray McCartney. The Deac's want him to play defensive back with some spot duty on offense. He likes their system and feels like he can make plays for them. In addition to the scheme he has family in Winston-Salem.
The Mountaineers want Davis on offense as a slot receiver and that is intriguing to the dual-threat athlete. The West Virginia spread offense is something he feels comfortable with as the Stallions ran the same attack last season.
He reminds me of fellow Florida prospect and current Mountaineer pass-catcher, Travares Copeland.
Davis is leaning towards making a decision when he comes back from Morgantown, but will talk to his parents before pulling the trigger.
Last fall, he accounted for over 1,500 yards and sixteen touchdowns while leading his team to the Class 3A state title.
This year, he has racked up over 1,000 yards of total offense with thirteen touchdowns. His team is 6-0.
