Highland Springs (VA) rising senior wide receiver prospect Felton Davis III has never put a timetable on his recruitment. In fact, when he narrowed his list to 10 on July 3, it was a spur-of-the-moment decision.
“I woke up that morning and felt like it needed to be done. I just felt like it was time,” said Davis, whose top 10 includes Louisville, Miami, Michigan State, Missouri, Nebraska, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Virginia Tech, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
“It was just based on a gut feeling. All these schools are great schools in need of receivers.”
When Davis will make the next step in his decision making process — whether that entails narrowing the list further or making a commitment — is unclear. What is known is that the 6’3.5”, 185-pound wideout plans to visit more schools. He has visited Vanderbilt, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia so far. He is scheduled to go to Michigan State on July 21 and will head back to WVU on July 26.
“I probably will also get some official visits in. It can’t hurt to be sure,” Davis said.
“Right now, I’m not leaning toward any one school. I’m not wide open. I’m taking everything day-by-day.”
Davis claims to not have a favorite at this point, though he does admit he favors the schools he has visited so far because he has seen those schools in person. Things could change once he takes more trips.
Virginia Tech was the first major school to offer, but UVa was not far behind. Both schools appear to be very much in the mix here.
“I like both of them the same right now,” Davis said of the Hokies and Hoos.
“From my aspect, maybe Virginia Tech had better years before but sometimes it’s about relationships and how you see a program building. Me and Coach London talk all the time, about life and things other than football. I see the two 5-star recruits they signed last year.”
Of Virginia Tech, Davis said: “Me and Coach (Shane) Beamer talk a few times a week, if I’m not busy. As people know we have got a big pipeline through Highland Springs with a lot of people going to Virginia Tech and being successful. If I go there, it’s good to know I’d be taken care of.”
Davis also addressed Michigan State, a school he will see for the first time later this month.
