The recruiting trail was a blur for Miami Norland class of 2015 cornerback Carlton Davis over the last few months. Scholarship offers to play football from all of the top programs in the south came and they were backed up by a strong spring of football.
Davis says that it was a very productive spring for him, and as a star in the track program too, he helped improve his overall game and abilities on the field.
"It was good," he said of his spring ball at Norland. "I got faster, became more of a leader, and more confident in my game."
At 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds, Davis says he runs an 11.09 in the 100 meters and those physical attributes have a bevy of schools after him. At this time he has no favorites, but the University of Florida is one that is interested in him in a big way and he feels the same.
Florida is a great school," he said Wednesday evening before sharing what defensive back coach Travaris Robinson (T-Rob) says stands out about the athletic corner. "He says he likes my size and physical ability."
Davis says he will visit Gainesville and the Florida campus on June 13th or 14th and says when he thinks of Florida he thinks of "DB-U"
With no favorites, Davis does still feel like he knows what he is looking for in a program.
"I am looking for playing time, a great education, and a good environment," he said.
Davis is one of the most sought after players in the state of Florida. His prototype size for the cornerback position has defensive stalwarts like Florida and Alabama offering and really recruiting him hard. Stay tuned to Scout as we continue to follow the recruitment and progress of Davis.
