Deep Run (Glen Allen, VA) offensive tackle Conner Davis has six Division 1A offers, including Boston College, Duke, Maryland, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia. The 6-5, 270-pound junior believes that the Evaluation Period could be busy, as the number of schools expressing interest continues to grow.

“Nothing much really has changed with me. I know once May comes around, it’ll get hectic. I think my name is definitely starting to get out there. I’m also thinking about the things I want to evaluate from the schools that offer,” said Davis, who recently received an e-mail from a Nebraska coacg and is now being recruited by UNC as well as several Big 10 programs.

Davis hit the recruiting trail this past winter, taking in junior days at Boston College, Virginia and Virginia Tech. Other than a visit to Virginia for a spring practice the first Saturday in April and a visit to Virginia Tech for its Spring Game, no other visits are scheduled for the near future.

Davis did not name any favorites, but there are some schools at the top of his list.

“I think right now I have a pretty good idea of what my top schools are,” Davis said. “I don’t like to say anything right now because I don’t want to put off any schools, but I have a pretty good idea of which ones are my favorites.”

Asked for his impressions about the two in-state programs, Davis answered, “UVa is close to home, it has great academics and the offensive line tradition is great,” Davis said. “I’m very familiar with it. The campus is really great. It has a really nice campus.

“Virginia Tech wins the ACC a lot. They have been going to big-time bowls and they are playing against high-caliber teams. Alabama is coming up on the schedule next year. The whole town is about the college. I know it has a great Engineering program, too.”

A first-team all-district selection at offensive tackle last season, Davis has added 15 pounds this off-season as he prepares for his senior season. He may be able to make his college decision before the 2009 season begins, something that would help him focus even more on his last season with the Wildcats.
