Washington (D.C.) Dunbar cornerback Vontae Davis has seen two new teams come into the mix for his services. The 6-foot-0, 184-pounder has been hearing recently from South Carolina and Pittsburgh.
"My coach is telling me that both of them are very interested, they haven't offered yet, but probably will," he said. "They are new teams recruiting me and are both good programs. I won't start learning more about them until they offer me or something though."
Davis currently has North Carolina, Maryland and Illinois among his favorites.
"I took visits to all three of them. I talked to the coaches and went to camps there," he said. "There's no real difference between them until I take an official visits and then we'll see.
"I think I'm supposed to go to the Penn State game at Illinois, I can go to a lot of Maryland's home games and I don't know about North Carolina. I think I'm going to do all three during the season. My coach is only allowing us to take three visits, but if I can get another one on my own, I might do it."
One other school that remains interested in the No. 1 player in D.C. is Virginia.
"They've been just sending me mail like South Carolina and Pittsburgh," he said. "I'm not sure if they'll offer, but most definitely I'll look at them. They've got a good program and atmosphere."
The three-star prospect holds approximately 12 offers with the rest of them from Duke, Rutgers and the MAC. Is he interested in those schools?
"I'm not really that interested," he said. "They are interesting schools, but I'm not strongly looking at them."
Davis's season starts on September 3rd. What is the all-league and all-city corner looking forward to this year?
"I'm just looking to try to make all-metro and my other goal is to be an all-American too," he said. "I'm looking to really work on my backpedal this year to get even better. I've got something to prove."
Davis certainly has high hopes for Dunbar this season too.
"This team is pretty good and we've got a young line, but they are far ahead from what the coach thought they would be," he said. "We're focused on winning a championship and going undefeated. We just have to be ready for the first game and go out and win it."
The cornerback recorded six interceptions as a junior last season.
