Plainfield (NJ) defensive end/outside linebacker prospect Dan Davis went into Saturday’s unofficial visit to Virginia thinking the Cavaliers were on top. He had a great time on his visit, reaffirming his liking for the program. It all started when he met with UVA Defensive Coordinator Al Golden early on Saturday.
“It was beautiful,” said Davis. “Coach Golden met me and Eugene [Monroe, a top junior OL prospect from Plainfield) with open arms. When we got there, he took us around on a tour personally. Then we went to the game and got to go into the locker room afterwards.”
Saturday’s visit seems to have set the standard for the rest of the schools he is considering.
“The visit really helped a lot,” said Davis. “I realized why I
really liked Virginia. I like the whole atmosphere down there – the school, everything. One
coach would come up to you and then another and they all did that.
I love the coaches and I loved the experience.”
Davis still plans to make all of his visits before announcing a decision. Virginia, Nebraska, Rutgers, Georgia, and Maryland will receive official visits. UVA, Rutgers, and Nebraska have offered scholarships.
“I’m still going to make my visits,” said Davis. “The visit made a difference though.”
UVA Offers Monroe
According to Davis, Eugene Monroe received an official scholarship offer from the Cavaliers on his visit. The 6-6, 320 pound offensive lineman looks to be one of the top juniors in the state of New Jersey.
“They offered Eugene while he was down there,” said Davis. “He loved it down there too. He was astonished because it was his first time there.”
In addition to Monroe, Davis also spoke with New Brunswick (NJ) wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett and met Don Bosco Prep (NJ) wide receiver/defensive back Marquise Liverpool. He said they both seemed to be enjoying themselves.
