When we last spoke with Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) ATH Marcus Davis , he had just visited the University of Florida and came back very, very impressed with the Gators. Florida remains high on the list of the 6-5, 215-pound prospect, but the Gators have yet to extend an official scholarship offer. They have, however, picked up its recruitment.
“I’ve been getting calls and mail from [Florida]. I’ve been talking to Coach Gonzales,” Davis said. “He has been keeping me up to date on stuff and keeping me posted. He wants to see a game from my senior season.”
Florida is not the only out-of-state program to capture Davis’ interest. He also says that he is “real high on Penn State and Tennessee” as well. Virginia Tech and North Carolina round out the current top five.
“I haven’t set any dates, but if I was to take five officials I would want to go to Florida, Tennessee, Penn State, Virginia Tech and North Carolina,” Davis said. “Those are my main schools right now.”
Davis’ recruitment has been a roller coaster ride of sorts in terms of favorites. Virginia Tech was the first to offer and was the favorite in the beginning. Then Tennessee moved to the forefront for a brief time before the Hokies recaptured the top spot after their June one-day camp. Then Florida made a strong push when Davis visited unofficially earlier this month.
Virginia Tech remains a top contender here, but Davis would like to learn more about how he would be used in Tech’s offense.
“Virginia Tech is going to be on the list because they were the first to offer, but I don’t know how the offense would change if I decided to go there,” Davis said. “Florida and some of those other schools are mainly passing offenses, which of course would be a priority for me since I’ll probably play wide receiver in college.”
Virginia Tech is led by Curt Newsome, who speaks to Davis once a week. The Ocean Lakes senior has not visited Blacksburg for a game but acknowledges that “there is a chance” he will make at least one game this season....
