As former teammates Antone Exum (Virginia Tech), Jordan Love (Georgia) and Jake Snyder (UVa) signed last Wednesday, Deep Run (Glen Allen, VA) junior offensive tackle prospect Conner Davis was busy calling college assistant coaches. The recruiting process is really just beginning for the 6-5, 255-pound first-team all-district performer and he is off to a great start.
Boston College, Duke and West Virginia have sent written offers already, with Duke being the first about two weeks before National Signing Day.

Davis has been to Charlottesville quite a few times in recent years, especially since his parents have gotten Virginia football season tickets. He had an in-depth look at UVa when he visited as a recruit for the Miami game last season and looks forward to an even closer look at the program on Saturday.
He’ll head to Virginia Tech for its junior day on February 28th. Prior to the two visits, he discussed what he likes about the in-state programs.
“Virginia is just an hour away,” Davis said. “They produce a lot of good offensive linemen. I like the campus a lot. Jake said he fit in well with the overall team and Jake and I are pretty good friends, so I think I’d probably be able to fit in. I know a lot of people up there and...
