Blue Ridge School (St. George, VA) star defensive back Greg “Hollywood” Davis made an official visit to the University of Nebraska last weekend. The 6-3, 190-pound prospect seemed to enjoy the experience very much. He comments on the official visit experience and answers whether or not he has a new program at the top of his list.
“It was crazy, man,” Davis said of the Nebraska visit. He made the trip by himself. “I can’t describe it. I had high expectations coming in, but it went way past that. The fans were crazy. I heard they were knowledgeable, but some of them had t-shirts with my picture on them. Everything was just crazy.”
Distance does not seem to be a factor in Davis’ decision, as he said “if the right fit for me was in Africa, then I’d go to Africa.” Comfort level is a factor, however. Did he feel comfortable throughout the weekend?
“I felt real comfortable,” Davis replied. “It was like a real big family. It’s what I’m looking for. I talked to Coach Callahan and Coach Elmassian. They were talking about me playing as a freshman because they are going to have kind of a weak secondary next year. They mentioned me playing safety or cornerback. It’s everything I need.”
Nebraska has now become the number one school on Davis’ list.
“They jumped to number one,” Davis said of the Cornhuskers. “They are followed by Virginia and N.C. State at number two, then there’s Virginia Tech, Maryland and West Virginia.”
Are there any other official visits lined up?
“My coach was talking to me about visiting Virginia Tech on December 10th, but that’s not set in stone,” Davis said. “I definitely want to visit N.C. State, too.”
When asked if Davis was going to take an official visit to Virginia, he replied “It’s still up in the air. I’m definitely going to be at the FSU game [next weekend].”
Stay tuned for comments from Davis on his UVa/FSU experience after next weekend.

“We blew out Covenant in the last game, 71-20,” Davis said. “I had two interceptions, one touchdown (receiving) and six tackles. Three or four of those hits were knockout blows. I was laying the hits in that game.”
