Atlanta (Ga.) Tri-Cities athlete Tristan Davis is having a solid senior season, averaging more than eight tackles a game, but he sure wishes things would be going better for his team.
“We’ve lost one and we’ve tied one,” Davis, a three-star athlete that is 5-foot-11 and 188 pounds, said. “We tied with Union Grove. We got a taste of their home cooking. There were a bunch of penalties called against us that just didn’t seen right.
“I’ve had a few fair games. I’ve not had a breakout game, but I’ve had a 10 tackle game and have been consistent. I want to win more than anything, though.”
Davis admits he’s starting to think more about the recruiting process. He was at the Georgia-South Carolina game this past weekend and is going to the Florida-Tennessee game this weekend.
The battle between the Gators and Vols will give him a chance to see two of his top teams in action.
“I don’t know what I want to see from the game,” Davis said. “I just want to see some good football on both sides of the ball.”
Davis, who is the cousin of Tennessee running back Jabari Davis, said Florida is still high on his list but the Gators have yet to offer an official scholarship. The Vols have, along with Mississippi State, Virginia, Clemson, Maryland and North Carolina.
He lists his top four as Florida, Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia Tech. UGA and Tech have made strong pushes here in the last week, Davis said.
“The coaches at Virginia love me personally,” Davis said. “I’m getting calls from the head coach himself and they have a lot of young talent there.
“Georgia Tech just bounced up on my list this week. I talked to a coach yesterday and he told me they’ve got my transcript and would be sending me an official offer this week, so that’s exciting. They’re a good school close to home.”
