Tristan Davis , the outstanding defensive back/wide receiver prospect from Tri-Cities High School in East Point, Georgia, was very impressed on his official visit to Virginia this past weekend. It was his first official visit.

“It was great,” Davis said. “I liked it. Virginia stands high on my list now. They are probably in the number one spot right now. I like the environment and the feel of the entire place. It was real. I was real close to committing, but I decided it would be right to just wait and take my visits.”

Schools in the running for Davis’ remaining four official visits are Florida, Auburn (no offer), Wisconsin, Maryland, and UNC. Brigham Young is also recruiting him very hard and has an in-home visit scheduled this week.

Davis, who was hosted by Cavaliers senior cornerback/safety Jamaine Winborne, spoke with many of Virginia’s coaches including Head Coach Al Groh.

“I talked to a lot of the coaches,” Davis said. “The Defensive Coordinator, the Offensive Coordinator, the Defensive Backs Coach, and the Head Coach. I talked to Coach [Al] Groh for a long time. He told me about how the program is going on and how I would fit in their defense. They are looking for a defensive back that can hit and run, and I think I could play that assignment for them.”

The Cavaliers are recruiting Davis as an athlete, however defensive back is his likely position. He spoke with Defensive Backs Coach Bob Price, who indicated he could play either safety or cornerback.

In addition to talking with the coaches, Davis had a chance to meet and spend time with the Cavaliers players.

“Jamaine was my host, so I hung around him a lot,” Davis said. “We talked about the system and how things go. I got along well with Jamaine, Almondo Curry, [Alvin] Pearman, Wali Lundy, and Biscuit [Marques Hagans]. They gave me good pointers. They said if I come back that I need to have the mindset that I’m going to play and make plays. You cannot be scared in college ball.”

Tristan’s favorite part of his visit was the 35-21 win over Virginia Tech. He noted the game eclipsed his previous favorite game, Tennessee at Auburn.

“It was the greatest college game I’ve ever been to,” Davis said. “It was close, but Virginia really started rolling. I was rooting the whole way. They
