Asked how it feels to be such a prime target on the recruiting trail this fall,
Jackson (Miss.) standout
Davis delivered a fitting analogy.
"It's like a bunch of people trying to run through a small door at the same
offensive tackle from Callaway High School. "It's pretty tight, and can
get kind of confusing on this side."
Davis, a member of the

team, said he's received calls from Florida, Southern Miss, Mississippi State,
Georgia, Georgia Tech, LSU, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Arkansas and Alabama in the
"I just got off the phone with Florida," he said. "They've probably been showing
me the most interest, them and the schools here in the state."
Davis said he's not whittled his list down to a top five yet. "It's still eight
or nine," he said. "LSU, Mississippi State, Florida, Tennessee, Georgia and
Auburn from the SEC, Georgia Tech from the ACC and one C-USA school, Southern
Callaway has started the season a disappointing 0-2, so Davis said his focus has
been shifted away from recruiting of late.
"We're 0-2 with about four or five good college recruits on our team. That
shouldn't be," he said. "We're focusing too much on all that stuff instead of
how we can get better and help the team win. So I'm just looking at taking care
of business on the field right now."
Davis plans to go through the process of taking all of his visits before making
a decision. He cites the schools' engineering programs, the type of offensive
schemes used (preferably a passing attack) and his relationship with the coaches
as the primary factors.
