6-5, 215-pound Marcus Davis , a star out ATH of Ocean Lakes High School in Virginia Beach, has only made visits to Virginia Tech and Virginia these past few months. He has mainly been focused on lifting weights with his teammates, preparing for his upcoming senior season. Davis took time to discuss his recruitment, which has not changed too much recently.
