Deep Run (Glen Allen, VA) offensive tackle Conner Davis will be able to more closely compare Virginia and Virginia Tech by next weekend. The 6-5, 270-pound junior attended the University of Virginia’s Spring Game yesterday and he’ll be in Blacksburg for Tech’s Spring Game next Saturday.
Davis had visited UVa numerous times before, including more recent trips to a February 14th Junior Day and a spring practice last month. How was this latest experience different?
“I think there was a difference between this and past visits,” Davis said. “I didn’t have much pressure on myself since I have an offer. I met the coaches and got to know them more. I went up there trying to have a lot of fun and watch some football.”

Fresh off his latest Virginia visit, Davis looks ahead to the Virginia Tech Spring Game.
“I have only been to two Virginia Tech games,” said Davis, who also attended Tech’s Prospect Day on February 28th. “It’ll be exciting to be there again. I’m sure there will be quite a few fans there. It’ll be cool to see the atmosphere one more time and to see the coaches and the players.”
Boston College, Duke, Maryland, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia have offered Davis, who is also drawing interest from Notre Dame and Syracuse, among others. Although he has been impressed by the in-state programs so far, he claims no favorites; however, he could be ready to claim a favorite...
