Plainfield (NJ) defensive end Dan Davis will make an unofficial visit to Virginia this weekend. He’s looking forward to the trip, and is anxious to see the Cavaliers in one of the biggest games of the season.

“I’m excited because this is a big, big game,” said Davis. “Hopefully Virginia will be able to come out of there with a win.”

Davis is particularly excited because the Cavaliers are his favorite school right now over Rutgers, Georgia, Nebraska, and Maryland. He visited Virginia during the summer and felt good about his experience.

Though the Cavs are currently out in front, Davis was quick to point out that the other programs still have a chance.

“Virginia is in the lead, but the others still have an even chance,” said Davis, who’s being recruited by Virginia defensive coordinator Al Golden. “When I visited Virginia, I felt really comfortable with everything down there. But Virginia and Rutgers are the only schools I’ve visited, so there is room for the other schools if I like what I see when I visit them. Virginia is the leader now though.”

Virginia, Rutgers, and Nebraska have offered scholarships thus far, and Georgia and Maryland are heavily recruiting him.

Davis will make all five official visits before making his decision. One visit has almost been set.

“I think I might go to Nebraska for the second week in December,” said Davis. “I think that’s going to be a big prospect weekend for them. Most of my visits will come in December or January and I’ll decide after that. I will take all five.”

In four games this season, Davis has tallied around 45 tackles including seven sacks. He has one forced fumble and one pass deflection as well.

At 6-3, 250 pounds, he is being recruited by Virginia as an outside linebacker prospect.


Bringing Big Company

Massive Plainfield junior offensive lineman Eugene Monroe will accompany Davis down to the FSU game. Davis says his teammate is one of the most talented players in the country.

“I’m not just saying this because he’s my teammate, but Eugene is probably one of the top recruits in the nation,” said Davis. “He’s 6-6, 330 pounds, and he’s really talented. You have to see film on him. He already has offers from Maryland, Rutgers, and Boston College. Virginia is looking hard
