Delray Beach (Fla.) American Heritage three-star athlete Marcus Davis hit the road this past weekend for what was supposed to be a two-school stop. It ended up being a trip where he was just able to see one of his current favorites.
"I made it to Wake Forest but I wasn't able to get up to West Virginia," Davis said Sunday night. "Something came up and I wasn't able to make it to West Virginia. That was in the plans but I wasn't able to make the trip."
The 5-foot-11, 170-pound athlete talked about his time at Wake Forest.

"What stood out the most probably would be everything that the coaches from Wake Forest have been telling me about the school - I finally had the chance to get up there and see it for myself," Davis said. "I finally got a chance to spend some time with the coaches in-person. I also got a chance to see the school."
One other thing that stood out to Davis is the amount of Sunshine State talent currently on the roster at Wake Forest.
"I got a chance to be around a whole lot of guys from Florida that are already there at Wake Forest," Davis said. "With a whole bunch of Florida guys up there, it made me feel really comfortable. I like that aspect."
Davis, who could be used on either side of the ball, had an opportunity to sit down and speak with Jim Grobe about his role for Wake Forest.
"When I sat down and talked with Coach Grobe, he just said it would be great if I came up there and played under him," Davis said. "He said that I would fit into the program. He just told me they want me on offense as I could even play a little bit as a wildcat quarterback for them."
Beyond football, Davis was impressed by the academic offerings at Wake Forest.
"The school, the education part of it, was really good as well," Davis said.
The South Florida prospect returned home impressed with the visit.
"All in all, I was pretty impressed," Davis said. "It was real exciting to finally get up there and see all the things they have been talking to me about."
Davis mentioned that he has no specific plans made at this time. He hopes to see West Virginia and Vanderbilt before the end of the summer. He mentioned that he will likely not take a visit to Mississippi State until he takes his official visits. Those three schools along with Wake Forest help to make up his current top four.
"Those are my top four," Davis said. "I don't have a leader. I probably will after I go and visit all of the campuses."
For American Heritage, Davis is the starting quarterback. In college, his primary position will be either wide receiver or defensive back.
