Virginia athlete talks recruiting

STATE COLLEGE, Pa.- Virginia Beach Ocean Lakes athlete Marcus Davis worked out at wide receiver during the State College NIKE Camp last Saturday and had a strong showing. After the event, he spoke with Rivals.com about the state of his recruitment, including some new offers and trio of schools that could emerge as his leaders.
The 6-foot-4, 226-pounder plays quarterback for his high school team, but displayed the versatility and athleticism Saturday to project at wide receiver, tight end or even outside linebacker or defensive end.
"I think it went real good out there for me (Saturday)," Davis said. "I ran good routes and had no dropped passes. I was a little disappointed in the one-on-ones because people were holding and things like that, but I don't have any excuses."
On the recruiting front, Davis currently claims offers from multiple programs.
"I have scholarship offers from Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Virginia, UCONN, Northern Illinois and Clemson," Davis said.
Davis, who claims a time of 4.41-seconds in the 40-yard dash, says that he is open with regards to where he wants to go to college and would be willing to leave the state of Virginia if the fit is right.
"I am open to going out-of-state," he said. "I'm not real sure about a leader or anything right now. I would have to say that the three schools that interest me the most at this time are Tennessee, Virginia Tech and Virginia in no order."
Davis had more than 1,400 yards (770 rushing, 650 passing) of total offense during his junior year.
