Earlier it was reported that tight end Vernon Davis had narrowed his list to Maryland and Florida. There seems to have been some confusion and Virginia still seems to be in the hunt.
"I think it was reported a little earlier that Vernon was only considering two schools, but I don't think that's the case anymore after talking to him," said the 6-foot-4, 220-pound tight end's grandmother, Adaline Davis. "Vernon's high school coach scheduled a press conference at 4 P.M. on Friday to make his decision between Florida, Maryland, and UVA."
This should come as surprising news to Virginia fans. Over the weekend Davis took a trip to Florida and was blown away. But the Cavs are still alive and Davis has been to Charlottesville at least twice on unofficial visits.
"Vernon just loved his visit to Florida," said his grandmother. "Right afterwards the head coach and coach Miller flew right up to our house to meet with us and follow up on things. That was very impressive and I feel very comfortable with them."
Does Davis have family or friends pushing him in any direction?
"You know, I didn't even want Vernon to play football to begin with," his grandmother remembered. "He told me he was just messing around and it wouldn't become serious. But he's worked so hard to get to the point that he's at that I trust him and his ability to make a decision.
"Everyone around him is satisfied with how he has gone about everything up until this point and this decision is going to be one that he has to make on his own. My only wish was that he pick a school with good academics, and the three schools he's considering all meet that very well. I couldn't tell you if he had a favorite right now. It seems like they're all even to him."
