As Ocean Lakes’ (Virginia Beach, VA) starting quarterback, 6-5, 215-pound Marcus Davis has performed very well, leading the Dolphins to a 6-2 record this season. Having tallied close to 1,800 total yards of offense so far, his performance has caused some college coaches to consider giving him a look at quarterback on the next level.
“Virginia Tech, Penn State and UVa have mentioned it,” Davis said of the possibility of playing quarterback in college.

The Ocean Lakes star would visit Tech with teammate Randall Dunn, who received an offer from the Hokies last week.
“It is not definite, but there is a chance we might go,” Davis said.
In our previous interview, Davis listed Florida, North Carolina, Penn State, Tennessee and Virginia Tech as his top five. Has anything changed?
“Those are still my main choices as of now,” said Davis, who added that he has weekly contact with...
