Devils Nearing Offer To Georgia Corner?

Peachtree Ridge CB Phillip Davis recently gained his first offer as the Navy Midshipmen made the call earlier this week to the 5-foot-11, 165 pound Peach State prospect. But could the Blue Devils be next in line?

"Navy offered Phillip last week, and Coach [Glenn] Spencer from Duke told me they were going to offer when they get back from vacation this week. Tulane and Vanderbilt are also recruiting him really hard," said Phillip Davis' father Adrian.

Considered a bit undersized by analysts, Davis still packs quite a punch according to Scout.com's Ryan Jordan, a regional analyst.

"Phillip is an undersized player by many standards but he's the type of kid that jumps straight off the film at you. He can be lethal with the ball in his hands on kick returns and he has great coverage ability. The thing that really stands out about him however is his physical nature. He packs a big punch on a relatively small frame."

In addition to the Blue Devils and Navy, Davis is hearing from Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, Tulane, Southern Miss, Boston College, Furman, Ole Miss, Bowling Green, Eastern Carolina, Coastal Carolina and N.C. State.

He is being recruited as a cornerback by most of those programs, something he has no problem with.

"Most of these schools like me at corner," Phillip told Scout.com. "I bring major cover skills and I have really good foot work. I'm physical, I'm good out of my cuts and I can make plays on the ball. I can come up and make the hit when it needs to be delivered."

That physical nature and style of play is something he says just seems to fit.

"It's just nature for me. When I was in rec league I always played on offense but in high school I've been predominantly defense. Just getting that first hit and laying somebody out got me excited. I love to do it now."

The Georgia product has been busy on the camp circuit already and shows no sign of letting up anytime soon.

"I've camped with Duke, Wake Forest and Vanderbilt so far. I'm going to Wofford, Elon, Southern Miss, N.C. State, North Carolina and possibly up to Boston College as well as Georgia Tech."
