Davis waiting on the word

SPARTANBURG - Quinshad Davis may have other options, but he's still patiently waiting to see what the two in-state schools will do.

Although the three-star wide receiver has yet to pick up a commitable offer from Clemson or South Carolina, he remains in regular contact with both schools.

Clemson wide receivers coach Jeff Scott, who serves as his primary recruiter, is in touch with Davis on a weekly basis.

"They just keep telling me to wait. That's what I've been doing. I'm going to start picking it up now since the season is over," Davis told CUTigers.com.

It's a consistent message from the Tigers' recruiting coordinator.

"They want me, but all the [wide receivers] are committed to them," Davis said.

South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier recently relayed a similar message.

"Coach Spurrier called me about two days ago," Davis said. "He said he really wants me and he's trying to work something out, but he doesn't know if he'll be able to."

That call from the Head Ball Coach meant a lot to the No. 45 wide receiver in the class of 2012.

"It was exciting. I grew up, when I was little, I liked Florida," Davis said.

Tennessee and Wake Forest are his top-two options.

He'll head to Knoxville for an official visit on the weekend of Jan. 20. A week before, the 6-foot-3, 180-pound wide receiver will head to Winston-Salem.

"They seem like they really want me," Davis said. "They're on me hard. That's what I like about those teams. They're really pursuing me."

A decision will be made sometime shortly after his official visits. He will not go all the way until signing day.
