Noor Davis talks Bama official

Noor Davis, four-star outside linebacker from Leesburg, Fla., committed to Stanford in May. He took an official visit to Alabama this past weekend to compare what the Tide has to offer for his college career. Andrew Bone talked with the elite prospect about the trip.

"It was a great trip," said Noor Davis. "I got a chance to witness one of the best games all year. Overall I had a great time.

"The game was excellent. It was very up-tempo. I am a defensive player. We live for those games. The atmosphere was electric. The fans really enjoyed it. It was a nice environment."

Davis arrived Saturday morning in Tuscaloosa. He went in-depth about his schedule.

"I had a game on Friday night, so I went up there Saturday morning," he said. "I had breakfast with the team. I walked around the block with the team.

"I toured the campus. I toured the facilities and offices. I saw the training room, weight room and locker room. I met with the coaches for a little while before the game.

"I watched the game. I hung out with a lot of recruits. After the game we ate dinner with the players and coaches. We then went out with the player hosts that night.

"We had breakfast at coach Saban's house Sunday morning. We went back to the football offices. I met with coach Sunseri, coach Williams and coach Cochran. I met with the athletic trainers. I toured the dorm rooms and academic resource center. Then came home."

The nation's No. 5 outside linebacker explained what stood out the most about the time on the University of Alabama campus.

"The best part about my visit was getting a chance to spend time with coaches and players," said Davis. "They are excellent coaches. Coach Williams, Saban, Smart, and Sunseri are all excellent coaches. It was great to be around them and share some of their insight.

"They said they would really like me there. They see me fitting in. They said I can make an instant impact as a freshman. They know I am committed to Stanford, but said they would really like for me to come to Alabama."

Davis also talked about the time spent with the Alabama players.

"My host was Vinnie Sunseri," he said. "It was great to hang out with him. I hung out with Vinnie, Jeoffrey Pagan and Cyrus Kounandjio. They are all great players. They are outstanding people. I enjoyed spending time with them there. They are all good people."

Davis shared his opinion on the overall program of the Crimson Tide.

"I know it's a great school," he said. "They have tremendous facilities and tradition. They have great coaches and players. They also play in an excellent conference. Overall it's a great place."

Davis will take an official visit to Auburn next week and will take a visit to USC.

"My committed to Stanford is firm," Davis said. "I want to go on these visits to compare. I want to see what different schools offer and then compare it to Stanford."
