Davis gets some Gator attention

With 32 offers in hand Javarius Davis already has made a name for himself. The lightning quick dual threat athlete from Jacksonville (Fla.) Ed White performed well in front of the Gator football staff on Tuesday in The Swamp, running, catching, and fielding kicks and punts like it comes natural to the star player. He talked about the camp session shortly afterward.

"They said I am a great athlete," Javarius Davis said. "They said receiver fit me the best so they liked me at receiver.

It was his second trip to Gainesville and he said enjoyed both.

"It was about the same," he said. "I loved both of the trips. This time I got to see more. I went to the academic building and around the campus. It was good.

"I love the atmosphere. It's a great coaching staff. Hopefully they offer me and see where it goes. They said I have great speed and I am very versatile. They love me as a kick returner and punt returner and I like that too."

With the 32 offers in hand, Davis has been a busy man on the phone and in person talking to college coaches and the media that covers recruiting. He hasn't limited his choices at the moment.

"It has been crazy, but good," he said. "I love recruiting and I am open right now, but we will see how it goes."

Two schools stand out for him right now, but again he is open. He says offers he would like to receive include powerhouse programs Auburn and Florida State.

"I'm loving Ohio State with Urban Meyer and I love North Carolina," he said. That is about it right now."

Meyer sees Davis along the lines of some of the greats that played for him when he coaches at Florida.

He is telling me what he did with Joe Haden and Percy Harvin," Davis said of the current Ohio State head coach. "He would like to have me in his program and take me to the top. He wants me to be a hard worker on his team and hopefully make it to the NFL."

Without cutting his list down, Davis says he doesn't want to take forever to make a final decision.

"I'm trying to make a decision by August," he said. "Mom and I are going to talk about it. We're going to see what school fits best for me and her academically and otherwise."
