The Buford High School [Ga.] senior visited Clemson earlier this year for the Tigers' team camp. For his most recent trip to Tigertown, Davis spent the entire weekend in Clemson.

What stood out?

"Just the campus, overall -- I like how many people were at the football game, and it was just against Furman. It shows the support all the athletics have. From the academic standpoint, I was really impressed with that. I'm trying to major in some kind of marketing. The stuff that they were telling me about the marketing program was good to hear, and just how close the team is, overall."

This weekend's official visit answered plenty of his questions, so Davis was able to give it a high rating.

"It was good. I told somebody, from what I needed out of the trip, I just wanted to see how it compared to other campuses, how it was on campus," he said. "It was everything I needed. That's a 10. From what I needed out of the trip, it was good."

Brad Brownell and the Clemson staff like the versatility Davis brings to the court. He said the Tigers' coaches are impressed with "The way I pass the ball and make plays, facilitate for others."

Tennessee hosted Davis last weekend. For now, he has no other visits in mind.

"I'm just going to talk about it with my parents and my coach, see where it goes from here," he said.

Davis plans to sign in the fall. Right now, Clemson and Tennessee are out front.

"I'm thinking of some other schools, but right now it's just those two," he said.

For the meantime, neither school has an advantage over the other.

As a junior at Buford, Davis averaged 13 points, 10 rebounds and five assists per game. Before the start of his junior year, Davis transferred from Greater Atlanta Christian. Top Stories
