WVU offense a fit for 2008 RB

Recruiting is heating up for Suwanee (Ga.) Peachtree Ridge junior tailback Brandon Davis. The 5-foot-9, 190-pounder doesn't hold an offer yet, but it appears it's just a matter of time before that happens.
"I've been getting a loads of mail from Auburn, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, LSU, Florida and more," he said. "We actually just received word recently that Georgia will likely offer if I take an unofficial after the holidays. I'm going to see about getting up there to take that visit.
"Besides them, LSU, Florida State, Notre Dame and Virginia Tech all have said they will likely offer too after the first of the year."
This season Davis took in the Georgia Tech-Miami game.
"That's the only game I went to and it was great," he said. "I got a chance to see both teams and I really liked what I saw from the schools."
With so many options coming, what is the 2008 prospect looking for out of a school?
"First of all, I'm looking for a good school academically," he said. "On top of that, I want a good football program that I could play at immediately and a school that fits me well. I really want to be somewhere I'll enjoy for four years. Finally, I think I would like to stay in the Southeast, but at the same time I think I may want to get out of state."
Although he claims to have no favorites, Davis is impressed with West Virginia's offense.
"I can say I don't have any favorites, but the tandem offense West Virginia runs is very intriguing," he said. "It creates chaos on defense and allows the team to score a lot of points."
Davis ran for over 1,300 yards and 13 touchdowns as a junior.
The Peach State running back is considering attending either the Army All-American combine or the Offense-Defense All-American combine next month. He's also planning to participate in a Nike Camp in the spring.
