Vols one of Davis' 'favorite' offers

InsideTennessee provides its readers with the latest and most up-to-date info on all things Vols. Scroll down to read about a fast-rising CB prospect who is high on Tennessee.

For reasons he can't fully explain, Wayne Davis has always liked Tennessee.

"I don't know what it was about them Vols, but since I was a kid I always liked them," the class of 2016 cornerback prospect told InsideTennessee. "Maybe it's their uniforms or something, I've always liked those or their stadium, because it's huge. I don't really know."

Now that Davis has been offered by Tennessee and has had a chance to talk with several coaches, he lists several reasons as to why he's so high on the orange and white.

"I just like what they have going on down there," Davis said. "They have great fans and I have a really great relationship with their coaches."

The Lake Taylor (Va.) High School standout, who dubs Tennessee and Ohio State his two "favorite" offers, calls his relationship with Vols wide receivers coach Zach Azzanni "awesome."

"He's just a really great guy. He's so cool," Davis said. "He's really honest and we have a great relationship. He's the kind of coach I could see myself playing for and all that. I talk to a lot of their coaches and they're all really good people.

"They're always telling me that they just love my game and they see that I'm a playmaker. I really like that. They make me feel good. They believe in me, which is really good."

The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder said he fully believes Tennessee's new coaching staff has the program headed in the right direction.

"They're set, man," Davis told IT. "They're going to be winning again really soon. They have all those great recruiting classes and stuff. It's good."

Davis, who picked up all four of his offers — from Tennessee, Ohio State, North Carolina and Wisconsin — in the beginning of May, said education will be the biggest factor in his still-young recruitment.

"I want to look at all the graduation rates, you know, find out who takes school seriously," Davis said. "You have to have a back-up plan if football doesn't work out. Education comes first."

Davis said he's heard "some" about Tennessee's Vol For Life program, but adds he'd like to learn more about the Vols' academic offerings.

"Hopefully, I can visit sometime soon and get to know more about all that," he said. "I still have time to figure everything out."

Davis, who calls his best qualities his athleticism and length, doesn't have any set visitation plans.
