Blue Ridge, Va., safety Greg Davis has scheduled his final two official visits of the recruiting season. Who has the 6-foot-2, 198-pounder decided on and why is he looking at going to those schools?
"I spoke to Greg this morning as he just came back from break and he told me he's scheduled visits with West Virginia on January 13th and Tennessee on January 20th," said Blue Ridge head coach Michael Alley. "I know he's always liked West Virginia because of their aggressive defense and the fact that not a lot of schools run a 3-3 system. I think they've always been in the back of his mind throughout the process.
"Tennessee came into the picture a little bit later and I believe any young man that has Phillip Fulmer come and talk to you has to be impressed. They have so much tradition there in football with one of the biggest stadiums in the country and the SEC is known as a powerhouse conference. Greg is excited about the visit and wants to se what they are all about."
Davis already took officials to Virginia, Nebraska and North Carolina State, but according to Alley no school is leading.
"I know he was impressed on his visits and the fact that all the schools did well and won their bowl games," he said. "I don't know whose leading now as he doesn't really talk about that. I believe he is starting to narrow down his priorities in a school which includes academics, the chance for early playing time and how he likes the school in general."
As for a decision the three-star prospect may have one before the end of the month.
"He's got a good idea of the schools he's looking at and I think Greg will know his decision just after his last visit," he said. "He just needs to take these visits and then I plan to sit down with him and his mom to discuss his options."
This season Davis was named co-defensive player of the year in the conference, all-conference wide receiver and defensive back and first team all-state.
