KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Washington (D.C.) Dunbar cornerback Vontae Davis was one of the top prospects at the Adidas 7-on-7 tournament on Friday and he didn't disappoint. Though his team didn't go far into the tournament, Davis put on a show along with 2007 prospect Arrelious Benn.
The 6-foot-0, 184-pound Davis is the top prospect for the District of Columbia this year and has already picked up an impressive list of scholarship offers.
"I have offers from Maryland, Illinois, North Carolina, Duke, Temple, Akron, Kent State and Rutgers," Davis said. "Most of the schools are recruiting me as a cornerback, but a few have mentioned possibly playing some wide receiver. I feel like I could be a little bit better as a corner, but I will play wherever I need to."
Davis, who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds, collected six interceptions and garnered all-city and all-league honors as a junior.
"Illinois is definitely a school that I am looking at," Davis said. "I think that coach Zook is going to do a really good job there. I am going to be visiting North Carolina so and they are one of my favorites also."
Davis gets good a good luck at what it will be like to cover college level wide receivers every day at practice as his teammate Benn is considered one of the nation's top wide receiver prospects for the class of 2007.
"He's awesome," Davis said. "I have gotten a lot better just through him. You have to find ways to cover him because he's the total package. He's got good size and he's real tall, but what makes it so hard is he knows how to use his body and block you out. Playing with a guy like that has definitely made me better."
