Four-star safety Greg Davis out of Blue Ridge, Va. took his first official visit this past weekend to Nebraska to witness the Cornhuskers victory over Iowa State. What did the 6-foot-2, 198-pounder with 4.5-second speed think of his trip?
"I picked him up from the airport and he had a big smile on his face, he really enjoyed his trip," said Blue Ridge coach Michael Alley. "The most positive thing that came out of his mouth was about the academics and how they are one of the best programs that support their players. When recruiting started, Greg and I had three principles he's looking for in a school, they include good academic support, does he like the school and if he feels he can play there. He felt comfortable with all three at Nebraska.
"I know he also loved the stadium and the fan support at the game. It was a big game between No. 23 Iowa State and Nebraska and that impressed him. He also enjoyed speaking with the players and finding out more about Nebraska football and their history. I also know he really likes coach Elmassian a lot."
Where does Nebraska stand for the No. 9 safety in the country?
"I think Nebraska has always been high on Greg's list because they were the first school to offer," he said. "He's come back very excited about the program and wanted to tell me about what he saw and who he met. I think with any teenager, it's very exciting coming back from officials, but once they are all out of the way we'll figure out what's best for him."
Currently, Davis hasn't scheduled any other official visits.
"I don't even know exactly which schools he wants to visit and it's going to be hard for Greg as we play games on Saturday," he said. "We're hoping to do some of the other visits in November, but I still tell him to keep his options open. Of course I believe Virginia, Virginia Tech and North Carolina State are schools he's still looking at a lot at."
The No. 8 player in Virginia helped the Barons to an impressive 71-20 crushing of Covenant last week.
"In that game, he did very well and had six tackles and two interceptions," Alley said. "This season he is playing very well and concentrating a lot. I know he's got a lot of distractions, but he is focused on high school football."
