DE, Class of 2020
Shiloh High School, Snellville, GA
To say that the recruiting interest of Shiloh (Ga.) 2020 three-star defensive end Jasheen Davis has spiked might be putting it mildly.
Davis now counts 28 offers, most recently from Virginia Tech, West Virginia and Arkansas. The last three months has included 18 of those scholarship offers. As Davis sorts through his options, he has a few that have caught his attention, enough that he’s set one official visit and has others that could get one soon.
“The education, the community, how it interacts with the college and the university,” Davis said. “Then, if the coaches treat me like family. In recruiting, they’re on their A-game. When that’s over, I want to know if they keep the same energy, or if they’re a whole different person. Once you get there, they’re still riding off what they did in their recruiting days.”
This spring, Davis said he made unofficial visits to Wake Forest, Louisville, Georgia Tech, Florida State, Auburn and South Carolina. The last two were for spring games.
“Most of them, they were group visits,” Davis said. “But most visits were one-on-one sit downs. At Wake, I sat with the coach, then the players, and they were talking about how Coach Clawson is. At Louisville, it was basically the same thing, but it was just 10 or 20 recruits they wanted to come. And we spent the whole day there.”
The Hokies offered Davis, Rivals.com’s No. 102 player in Georgia for 2020, last week. He’s yet to see Blacksburg in-person, but said he hopes to make that happen later this summer.
“They offered Monday, and I’ve been talking with them ever since then,” Davis said. “I’ve looked at their school of business. Coach (Charley) Wiles said they were one of the top schools in business in the U.S. But I always had interest in Virginia Tech before they offered. I’ve watched them on TV and I like how they play football, especially that defense.”
Wiles has been Davis’ primary recruiter and is the one who made the offer. So far, Davis said he’s been impressed by what he’s heard.
“He’s a pretty good dude,” Davis said. “When he came down the other day, he seemed legit about what he was talking about, how bad they wanted me. He said he can make me a better individual on and off the field.”
For now, Davis’ lone official visit...
