West Monroe (La.) defensive tackle Luther Davis has been getting a slew of scholarship offers of late and has an early top three.
The 6-foot-3, 250-pounder has offers from LSU, Ole Miss, Arkansas, Notre Dame, Texas A&M and Southern Mississippi.
"I'm excited about how things have been going," Davis said. "My top three right now is Ole Miss, LSU and Florida State, but Notre Dame is trying to creep up in there."
According to Davis, the Irish want him to make an unofficial visit to South Bend.
"They were telling me about spring ball," he said. "They also invited me to their football camp this summer."
He saw one of his favorites during last weekend and will see another one on Saturday.
Davis visited Ole Miss for the Rebels Junior Day event this past weekend and enjoyed his time in Oxford.
"I loved the campus," Davis said. "I know that Coach Ed Orgeron is going to do great things there."
He will head to Baton Rouge for LSU's Junior Day event this weekend.
"Growing up in Louisiana, everyone pretty much is an LSU fan," Davis said. "So getting an offer from them was big."
Davis said that he and his West Monroe teammates, including Will Blackwell, another standout defensive lineman, will likely make a final decision just after their senior season is complete next fall.
"Me and (Blackwell) and the other guys are going to make all of our decisions together at the end of our senior year," Davis said. "There is a strong chance that we will all be going to the same school.
"We all know that recruiting can become a big hassle, but at the same time we want to check everything out and make sure we make the right decision."
Davis, whose brother Lucas Jackson went through the recruiting process a few years back and ended up at Arkansas, knows what he is looking for in a program.
"I want to see if they have a good academic program," he said. "I want to major in criminal justice. I've been through the process before with my brother, so I am looking for an honest coaching staff. I know that some coaches will just tell you what you want to hear, but I am looking for a staff to be honest."
Davis had 88 tackles and eight sacks in 2005.
