For The Villages (Fla.) outside linebacker Noor Davis the past couple weeks have been a whirlwind. Davis, a 6-foot-4, 225-pound outside linebacker, has seen his offer list swell to five offers.
"It has been fun, kind of hectic, but fun," Davis said. "The coaches calling my school and being able to get in touch with them to hear what they have to offer at their university and the offers that they have made, it has just been a great experience."
With offers from Boston College, Florida State, Syracuse, UCF, and Virginia, as well as numerous others interested, Davis intends to hit the road for some visits in the coming weeks.

"I haven't taken any Junior Day visits but I have been invited to quite a few," Davis said. "I will be heading up to Florida this Saturday and then I will be at UCF on March 26th."
Davis has previously taken unofficial visits to schools during last summer and fall. Some of the schools he has previously seen are Auburn, Florida State, Miami, and UCF.
As for his offers, he talked a bit about each of the schools.
Virginia: "Coach (Vincent) Brown said they want to get me on campus and tour everything, meet all of the coaches and some of the players. He said that I have an offer and that they want me to see how I can fit in there and the experience I can have at Boston College."
Boston College: "Coach (Jeff Comissiong) was saying that they want to get me up there to meet their coaching staff. He told me they thing very highly of me and would like me there. They want me to play defensive end. He said that they really want to keep in touch with me and that they want me to be an Eagle."
UCF: "They kind of sell the home-cooking aspect plus the fact that I have a whole lot of friends that go to UCF. They have a great program, an up-and-coming program. They have great coaches. They are trying to sell me on the fact they are right here location-wise. They talked about how they are one of the biggest schools in term of enrollment in the entire nation. They just said they really want me there. They were the first school to give me a scholarship offer."
Syracuse: "They have been saying that they want me there. They want me to be an outside linebacker for them and to come off the edge on passing downs. They brought up successful linebackers they have had at Syracuse and that they do a lot of things with their backers, and they feel I can do that for them. They said they lost two of their starting linebackers and they want to replace those guys with me."
Florida State: "Coach (D.J.) Eliot was talking about how Florida State's history speaks for itself. The program is one of the best recruiting program in the nation. They win. That is what he was telling me. I spoke to Coach Jimbo Fisher for about 10 minutes and had a good conversation with him. I also spoke with the offensive coordinator (James Coley). Coach Eliot was basically telling me it is an in-state school, so friends and family can get up to see me play."
Davis moved to Florida as a freshman to live with his father, he originally hails from the Washington D.C. area. With that being said, he is taking the process at a slow pace and has no early leaders.
"I am trying to keep my options open as much as I can so that I can make my best decision when I have all of my final offers," Davis said. "With that being said, I want to base my decision on the academic standing, the program's history, their tradition, and the location of the school."
As a junior, Davis recorded 98 tackles, 7.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, five pass deflections, two touchdowns and a safety.
