With his football season now complete, Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) star Marcus Davis is now ready to focus on making a college decision. The 6-5, 215-pound senior is hoping to make official visits in the near future and, following those visits, make a decision on where he will attend for the next four or five years.
