Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) ATH Marcus Davis , a junior fast on the rise in the recruiting ranks, showed off his abilities at two camps this month and his performances have been well received by college coaches. The 6-5, 215-pound Davis has added four offers this month alone, raising his offer total from three to seven.

He is being recruited by Virginia as an outside linebacker/h-back, while Virginia Tech likes him as an athlete. Most college coaches see Davis as an athlete. Does he have a position preference?
