Blue Ridge School (St. George, VA) defensive back standout Greg “Hollywood” Davis is hearing consistently from about six schools, four of which are from the Atlantic Coast Conference. Davis, a blue-chip recruit with an excellent combination of size and speed, will take his first official visit next weekend.
“I’m going to Nebraska on the weekend of September 30th,” Davis said. “I’m looking forward to it. I’ve never been to Nebraska before.”
In addition to Nebraska, Davis has been in constant contact with Virginia, Virginia Tech, Maryland, N.C. State and West Virginia. He was asked which schools, if any, are his current favorites.
“Right now, Virginia and N.C. State are tied at number one,” Davis answered. “I’d say they are locked right now. N.C. State moved up when I went to see them. It was crazy and I liked what they had going on. Then it’s Virginia Tech, then Nebraska and then whoever else is recruiting me.”
Davis discussed the contact he has had with Virginia and Virginia Tech.
“For Virginia, I really know Coach D’Onofrio and Coach Golden,” Davis said. “They both contact me on my cell phone and we text message almost everyday. They are real cool. They always say things like ‘we need you’. They are real confident in my ability to be a real good defensive back for them. I debate with them that, if I did end up there, I would be the best defensive back ever (laughs). I’ve joked about that to Coach Poindexter (laughs). For real, though, it’s all good.
“[For Virginia Tech] Coach Ball came to our Hampton Roads game. He left after the first quarter because it wasn’t a great game (Blue Ridge won 68-0). I talked to him [yesterday] and he was talking to me about setting up an official visit date. He was telling me that they have a boundary cornerback. It’s what Jimmy Williams plays and he said they are looking at me to replace him. He was telling me that he and Coach Beamer compared me to Jimmy Williams.”
Davis will take an official visit to Virginia Tech and he says he will likely go to the Miami/VT game as well. He said he will take an official visit to N.C. State, too. Will Virginia, which has been at the top of his list since the beginning, get an official visit too?
“I’m not sure,” Davis said. He plans on attending UVa’s games versus Florida State and Virginia Tech on unofficial visits. “It’s just because I’ve been there so many times. Right now, I’m not sure on that one. I’ll save it in case I need it.”
