Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) star Marcus Davis has one more official visit left – he heads to Morgantown this weekend to visit West Virginia University – before he will make his college choice. Dolphins head coach Jim Prince believes all five finalists – Connecticut, North Carolina, Penn State, Virginia Tech and West Virginia – remain in contention.

Coach Prince did not speak with Davis yesterday, so he was unable to report on his star’s official visit to UNC. However, he did report that the previous weekend’s official visit to Virginia Tech went very well.

There is no set timetable for when Davis or teammate Randall Dunn will make their respective decisions, but Prince hopes it is very soon after this weekend. Dunn, who has already taken officials to U-Conn, Virginia Tech and UNC, plans to visit Virginia and West Virginia this week.
“I’m hoping they make their decisions come Sunday or Monday,” Prince said.
