Fort Pierce (Fla.) St. Lucie West Centennial outside linebacker Chasman Davis is known as one of the hardest hitters in the class of 2006. He's also known as one of the newest members of the Rivals100 team as a four-star selection. Davis, who is 6-foot and 209 pounds, found out late last week that he made the elite squad and couldn't have been prouder.
"I'm excited," Davis said. "I'm the No. 6 outside linebacker in the country and the No. 70 player overall. I think I should have been No. 1, but I know you have to rank them somehow. It's a great honor to be up there, but I also know it's temporary.
"I'm going to prove that I'm No. 1."
Actually, Davis is No. 1 in many people's books when it comes to being ranked as one of the nation's best linebackers. With offers from Florida, Georgia, N.C. State, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Auburn and many more, it's hard to disagree that he's something special.
"I got out there and find the ball and kill it," Davis said. "That's what I like to go out there and do."
Davis said he's been thinking a lot about recruiting. Teams like Georgia, Auburn and Oklahoma are up there in his mind quite a bit, but he's also not ruling anything, or anybody out at this point.
"I really liked coach Gill from Auburn when I talked to him in May," Davis said. "And Oklahoma is a pretty good program. They stay in the top three all the time and win a lot of games. I'm going to try to make it up to Georgia for camp. I know for sure that I'm trying to make it to Auburn and Georgia for at least one day."
