6-3, 190-pound defensive back prospect Greg Davis made the short trip from Blue Ridge School to Charlottesville on Saturday to see Virginia’s 26-21 win over Florida State. Davis, a highly rated in-state recruit, talked about Saturday’s atmosphere and what impact, if any, the game may have made on his decision.
“The fans were crazy,” Davis said. “They were all jumping up and down. Some had their faces painted orange. It was a real good atmosphere. Virginia kind of surprised me with the way they played. Marcus Hamilton had a good game. Tony Franklin had a good game.”
Heading into the trip, Davis named Nebraska as his leader. He made an official visit to Nebraska several weeks ago and the experience there put the Huskers on top. Has anything changed?
“I’d still say Nebraska is at the top,” Davis replied. “Virginia of course is still in it, N.C. State is still in it, Virginia Tech is still in it, and I’d say Maryland and West Virginia are still in it, too.”
As for official visits, Davis still has not set any other dates. He is considering a December 2nd date to the University of Maryland and December 9th date for Virginia Tech, but nothing is set at this point. He has decided to take an official visit to UVa and N.C. State will likely get the fifth spot.
“I’m pretty sure I’m going to take one,” Davis said of taking an official to UVa. “Official visits could sway my decision, so I’ve got to take a visit to Virginia. Virginia has always been in my top schools, so I will go for an official visit.”
Before heading to the UVa game, Davis helped his team to another big victory on Saturday. Blue Ridge defeated Christchurch 19-0, playing what was probably its best game of the season. Davis played safety and cornerback on defense. He feels he could play either position in college, as well.
“I feel I could play early anywhere I go,” Davis said. “I’d prefer to play corner, but we’ll see what happens.”
Did Davis talk to any coaches following the game?
“I spoke to Coach D’Onofrio,” Davis said. “He was real pumped up. Everybody was, really. He was saying, ‘Hollywood, when are you going to commit?’ I said I’d have to see.”
Virginia’s coaches have told Davis he is their #1 recruit at the safety position. He talked about what that may mean to him.
