In our last update with Felton Davis III back in February, the Highland Springs (VA) wide receiver had just landed scholarship offers from Virginia Tech, UVa and JMU. The 6’3”, 180-pound rising senior’s offer list has since continued to grow, with East Carolina, Illinois, Marshall, Ohio, Old Dominion and Wisconsin coming on board as well.
“It feels good. This is a real blessing,” Davis said of his recruiting success.
The recruiting process “has been fun,” Davis said. “It is something to take in. You only go through it one time. I try do to my homework when I first get home and then I might call a coach and talk on the phone for a while.”
Davis is unsure of when he will commit, but he certainly has been busy visiting schools. The talented wideout has traveled to Maryland, North Carolina, ODU (twice) and UVa so far this year. More visits are on the horizon.
“I know for a fact I will be at Virginia Tech this Saturday and Wake Forest next Saturday. The Saturday after that, I’ll be at UVa,” Davis said. “Either during the spring or the summer time, I’m heading to Wisconsin, Illinois and Ohio. I’m thinking about attending Ohio State’s one-day camp and maybe a camp at Clemson.”
This Saturday’s trip to Blacksburg will be Davis’ first true visit to Virginia Tech, though he was in Blacksburg this past winter for a track event. At this point he says he is considering both in-state ACC schools, and he looks forward to learning more about Tech this weekend.
“Both are equal with me,” Davis said, referring to Virginia and Virginia Tech. “Both could have big seasons [this fall]. Virginia Tech has good coaches. On Virginia’s side, they have a young team. They didn’t have many seniors last year. They should grow and continue to get better.”
Football-wise, what will Davis be looking for in a school?
“Coaches and then offense,” the Springers standout replied. “A school doesn’t have to be pass-first, just as long as the receivers get touches.”
