RECRUITING: Gators clear leader for T. Davis

You'd be hard pressed to find a more athletic big man in the south than Armwood's Torrey Davis. The big man moves effortlessly on the football field and dominates his opponents from his defensive end spot. He's already garnered 5-star status on and he has the offers the back it up.

"I know Georgia, Florida, Florida State and Auburn have offered me. Alabama offered today, and Texas has offered me also," Torrey Davis said.

He names a top three with a clear leader.

"Florida is my top school. I also like Auburn and Georgia."

What stands out about each of those programs?

Florida: "I like their defense a whole lot. They're losing a lot of players on the d-line so I feel I can come in and compete at least for some playing time. I wouldn't be mad if I had to redshirt though. That's something you have to think about when you go to a school like Florida. I'm not going to some D-2 or D-3 school."

Auburn: "They weren't scared to offer me first and they did that my 10th grade year. They went to a big bowl game and they put great players out in the draft."

Georgia: "I've liked Georgia since I was in middle school. I fell in love watching David Pollack and how he played. I would love to be like him or that other big #98 they had. I love the players they've always had on the DL and they pump out d line guys."

I got a heavy inclination that the Gators may have an even bigger lead than his quotes may imply and he admits that an early commitment is very possible.

"It could be an early commitment. Maybe at the start of next school year."

Davis will camp with USF this summer and also plans a camp visit to Gainesville. Stay tuned to for the latest on this 5-Star DT right up through signing day 2007…
