Where Does Enrique Davis Stand With Auburn?

One of the South's top tailbacks discusses his recruiting status after a visit to Florida State.

Lynn Haven, Fla.--Running back Enrique Davis committed to Auburn on an unofficial visit the day of the Tigers' victory over Florida on Oct. 14. He's been a solid verbal to the Tigers since then, but took an official visit to Florida State during the "banquet weekend," which annually draws commitments from blue-chippers around the Southeast.

So where does Davis stand with the Tigers after his visit to Tallahassee?

"I'm still committed to Auburn," Davis explains. "I know a lot of people who are committed to Auburn and a couple of people who are committed to Florida State. There's something about Auburn right now, just like I told coach (Mickey) Andrews when he talked to me, Auburn is still No. 1 and still in the front.

"They just said how they want me and stuff," he says of the Seminoles coaches. "I let them know straight up that Auburn is still my No. 1 school."

Davis adds that he is not taking any other visits, and the Auburn coaches were okay with his visit to FSU.

"They already knew basically what the deal was so it was okay with them," Davis notes.

Several other players who Auburn is recruiting were in Tallahassee on official visits.

"It was a good visit," Davis says. "Mike McNeil, Brandon Paul, those are my boys right there. We hung out together and Antoine Carter--I hung out with him. There were a whole bunch of people that I hung out with like Tony Carter and Brandon Warren. We had a good time. It was a nice banquet. They had it set up real nice."

He adds that McNeil and Carter are still trying to decide which school to sign with on Feb. 7, which is national signing day.

The four-star running back is already friends with many of the commitments in the Auburn class, and he got to play in an all-star game with a few earlier this month. Davis notes that his relationship with his future teammates is another positive to stick with the Tigers.

"I still talk to Bailey Woods and I talk to Kodi Burns every once in a while," Davis adds. "We all keep in touch.

Commenting on seeing Burns in person, he says, "I was like, ‘It's a good thing I'm going to be on his team. I went down there and had a good time with all of the guys and talked to Bailey--he's a good player. All of them are good players."
