For now, Osceola (Fla.) two-star all-purpose back Malcolm Davidson has not taken any college visits. But with offers continuing to come in, that will change soon.
Offers have come in most recently from Boston College, Iowa State and Virginia Tech, giving Davidson plenty to look over. He has one visit set, two more he’s working on, and a few characteristics he’s looking for in his next home.
“I want a good atmosphere I can have fun in, coaches I can bond with and good players to play with,” Davidson said. “I want a good major, too. I’m not sure yet, but I’m trying to figure that out.”

“They’ve been sending me letters, and then a few days ago two of the coaches followed me on Twitter,” Davidson said. “The running backs coach hit me up on Twitter and then Coach Scott got my number from another player. He told me to call him and I talked to the head coach, too. They really like my film and how I play. They said I fit their offense and they wanna get me up there soon.”
No other visits have been set, but Davidson said he hopes to see Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech and South Florida at some point, possibly this spring.
