Tri-Cities (East Point, GA) athlete Tristan Davis may be down to just four schools. He has made official visits to two of those schools – Virginia and UNC – and has scheduled official visits for the remaining two, which are Mississippi State and Auburn. Arkansas may get an official visit as well, however Davis is unsure whether or not he will make a trip to Fayetteville.
“I’ve kind of narrowed my list to four,” Davis said. “They are Auburn, Virginia, UNC, and Mississippi State. I was talking with Arkansas about visiting there, but I’m not sure if I will or not anymore.”
Of the four, Davis stated initially that he has no favorites, however one school may in fact be edging out in front of the rest.
“It’s all about the same,” Davis said of his top schools list. “I mean, I’m kind of liking Auburn right now, but I still need to take my official visit to really know.”
This past weekend, Davis made an official visit to UNC. The Tar Heels received several commitments throughout the weekend, however Davis was not one of them. He wants to make at least these four visits before announcing his decision.
“It was very nice,” Davis said of UNC. “I liked the campus, the coaches, and the players. I kind of wish I would have been able to see a game atmosphere with them, but it was still fun. Players were committing out of nowhere, but I didn’t join them. I know I want to make all of my visits.”
Virginia remains in the mix for Davis. He had a very good official visit to Charlottesville and has developed a great relationship with Coach Mike London, his primary recruiting coach.
“I still really do like Virginia,” Davis said. “I wish I could take another visit up there. I wish I would have taken an unofficial to see the game, because I didn’t get a chance to talk to all the coaches as much as I did at UNC. I still like them, though, and I was really impressed with their bowl win. That put them up a little on my list.”
It looks like Auburn may be tough to beat out in this race, though Davis did not say anyone is out quite yet. One of the top athletes in the state of Georgia, Davis recently earned MVP honors in the Georgia North versus South All-Star game. He can play cornerback, safety, tailback, or wide receiver on the next level.
