Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) QB/ATH Marcus Davis has taken two of his allotted five official visits, but he is not close to making a commitment anywhere. Instead, the 6-5, 215-pound senior plans to make more official visits in January, with a commitment likely coming closer towards Signing Day.
“I’ve had two official visits already. I went to U-Conn and Penn State,” Davis said. “Nothing else is set officially, but I know I want to make more official visits.”
Davis commented on his experience at Penn State, which occurred on the weekend of December 8th. He visited U-Conn the weekend before that.
“It was all right,” Davis said. “I could see myself there, but it was an ok visit. I enjoyed talking to Coach Paterno. I liked seeing the stadium. The players were cool.”
Davis, who says he does not have a favorite school, confirmed that Virginia Tech would be one of the schools he visits next month. He knows of one other school he’d like to visit, but isn’t as sure on the other.
“There is Tennessee and there is Virginia Tech. And maybe North Carolina,” Davis said.
Florida and Ohio State are two programs that have expressed interest in Davis, but neither has offered. As a result, the talented prospect is focusing his attention on other schools.
“I really don’t know what the situation is, but I’m really not considering them right now since they haven’t offered,” Davis said.
In what was an excellent senior season, Davis passed for 1,837 yards and rushed for 858 more in leading Ocean Lakes to a 9-2 overall record. He scored a total of 32 touchdowns for the Dolphins, earning first-team all-Beach district and first-team all-Tidewater honors for his performance.
Penn State and Virginia Tech are two of the programs recruiting him to play quarterback. He discussed the situation in Blacksburg.
“I know I probably wouldn’t play quarterback right away,” Davis said. “Maybe I would play wide receiver to start off. It doesn’t really matter, though.”
