Miami (Fla.) Coral Reef cornerback Vernon Davis saw his offer list double on Thursday, when he received his second offer.
"I got an offer from Vanderbilt on March 8th," Davis said. "I got UCF today."
The 5-foot-10, 165-pound defensive back talked about when the Commodores offered him.
"It meant a lot to me to get that first offer, especially from Vanderbilt," Davis said. "Vanderbilt is a great school academically and on the field, so that was good."
As for the offer that came in today, he is hoping to learn more about the Knights in the coming days and weeks.
"My coach called me and told me that UCF had offered me and that I should give them a call to talk with Coach (David) Kelly," Davis said. "I haven't been to UCF yet. I am planning to visit there next week (for their Junior Day on the 26th)."
So far, Davis has take one Junior Day visit to another in-state school who is involved with him.
"I have been to USF for a Junior Day," Davis said. "They got a real good thing going on over there. They are coming up real fast. They have a lot of talent. I think they are going to be doing something big in a little while. The campus is big and there is a lot of stuff to do."
While he is getting interest from the Knights and Bulls, Davis admits that Vanderbilt, as well as other out-of-state options, will get just as much attention.
"I am cool with leaving the state," Davis said. "I just want a school with a good football program, good coaching staff, and a place where I can talk with the players and see what kind of program it is. I also care about the community and the environment surrounding the program. All of that."
As a junior, the South Florida product had 32 receptions for 640 yards and seven touchdowns on offense. Defensively, he recorded 25 tackles and four interceptions. He also scored a pair of touchdowns on special teams, returning punts.
