Maryland CB gets first offer, names leader

One of the top players in the Mid Atlantic is cornerback Vontae Davis out of Washington (D.C.) Dunbar.
The 5-foot-11, 180-pounder has gotten mail from schools including Maryland, Michigan State, Marshall, North Carolina, Duke, North Carolina State and Illinois. Davis has also received his first offer of the recruiting season from Kent State.
This season Davis helped Dunbar to a 10-2 record as they won the ECIAA championship. He recorded six interceptions as he was named all-league and all-city.
"We played as a team this year," he said. "I played to the best of my ability to help the team win and I improved the most on my cover skills as a defensive back, especially man to man cover skills."
Who's at the top of Davis's list?
"Miami is my first choice," he said. "I like the team, prestige and even the uniforms, but right now I'm still wide open. I grew up a fan of Maryland as well and have liked them since I was born, but I don't favor them at all."
Davis stressed that he is particularly looking for early playing time in college along with other things.
"I want to be able to go in and play right away," he said. "I'd like to play as early as possible. I'd also like to stay close to home, but if I have to leave home I will."
This spring Davis has already scheduled some plans including heading to Maryland's junior day this upcoming weekend and the Nike Camp at Penn State.
As for this summer, the defensive back is looking at going to the summer camp at Maryland and Illinois.
