Running Back Looking Forward to AU Visit

Enrique Davis talks about his upcoming visit to Auburn and a couple of uncommitted friends also coming in for an official.

Lynn Haven, Fla.--Four-star Mosley running back Enrique Davis, who committed to Auburn the weekend of the 27-17 victory over Florida, is one of many high-profile football prospects taking official visits on Friday as the Tigers hope to get closer to wrapping up the 2007 signing class.

"I'm really just going up there and see how it feels to spend more than a day," Davis explains. "I basically already know all there is at Auburn from when I've been there and I like it. I've done some checking out on it already academic-wise and I'm going to into communications. That's what I'm majoring in and they've got a pretty good program for that. I want to be a commentator."

With this being the busiest recruiting weekend of the year for Auburn football, some of Davis' friends will be in town to take a look at the program, which is coming off an 11-2 season and has 33 wins in the last three years.

"My boy Mike McNeil is going to come up there with me and my boy Bailey Woods will be down there," Davis says. "Morgan (Burnett) is going to be down there the same day, too.

"Me and Mike talked yesterday," he continues. "He called me and he's still checking out Auburn pretty hard. He's checking out them as well as some other schools and Florida State is still in the mix. I talked to (Morgan) yesterday, too. He's coming in for a visit because he's still checking us out pretty hard. He's checking us out and Georgia Tech. He hasn't committed anywhere yet."

McNeil and Burnett are both four-star safeties.

Davis has been to Auburn for summer camp and the Florida game and also made the journey to Tuscaloosa on Nov. 18 to watch the Tigers beat Alabama for their fifth consecutive victory in the Iron Bowl.

"It meant a lot especially because of who they were playing against," Davis says of the 22-15 victory. "It's a big rivalry game. It meant a lot to both teams and it could go either way, but Auburn just stuck with it and won and that was very impressive to me."

Despite being a solid verbal commitment to Auburn, talk has swirled on the Internet about him being interested in Florida State, but those rumors are not true, according to Davis.

"I don't know where that came from," he explains. "A lot of people lately have been saying because of the coaching changes at Florida State and Alabama, everyone thinks I'm still checking them out real hard all of sudden. But I don't know where that came from. Auburn is the only school I'm talking to."

Davis is also trying to get all of his academic preparations in line so he can come in and compete for playing time with starting tailback Kenny Irons graduated.

"We get report cards on Monday and I've been doing pretty good on my grades," Davis notes. "I'm looking for a good report. I took the (ACT) test a while back and I made a 24."
