Tristan Davis leaves today for the Georgia North-South All-Star game. The versatile 5-11, 185 pound prospect will play the safety position in the game, which takes place on Tuesday, December 30th. He earned the nomination following an excellent senior season where he made 140 total tackles (60 were solo) and had five interceptions as a safety on defense. He added five scores on offense.
On the recruiting front, Davis boasts one additional scholarship offer as the Auburn Tigers have now officially offered him. Florida, who he was also interested in, appears to be falling off somewhat.
“I received an offer from Auburn, but Florida hasn’t really done anything so they are kind of falling out,” Davis said. “Auburn offered me during the week of the 16th [of December] I think. I was really high on them but I kind of came back to reality once they didn’t offer. I’m still glad they did.”
In addition to the Auburn offer, Tristan has scholarship offers from Virginia, UNC, Alabama, and Wisconsin among others. He has scheduled official visits to UNC for January 9th-11th and Auburn for January 23rd-25th.
Virginia, led by recruiting coach Mike London, is stilly heavily pursuing the Tri-Cities star.
“Virginia’s still sitting high on my list,” Davis said. “Coach London keeps real close in touch with me, at least as much as he can. He talks a lot to one of my former coaches, who then talks to me to. So Coach London keeps in touch with me a lot.”
Davis did not want to name any favorites right now, as he is looking forward to making his official visits.
“I’m even, and I’m trying to stay that way,” Davis said. “I want to make my official visits and then think about all of those. I’m debating which other schools I will make visits to. I’m not sure if I’ll take all five, but probably four.”
Virginia remains heavily in the hunt for the talented and versatile Davis, although they now have much more competition with the offer from Auburn. The Tigers are much closer to home for Davis and he enjoyed his unofficial visit there earlier this year.
