Green Wave Has Three Known Visitors

Davis was named by Atlanta area coaches to the Region 7-AAAAA All-Region football second team and the Gwinnett All-County team after recording 39 tackles, 5 interceptions, and 9 receptions for 87 yards and a touchdown during his senior season in which he was the leader and key playmaker in the Peachtree Ridge secondary and helped carry the team to the 5A state championship

First-year head coach Bob Toledo will host at least three prospects on official visits to the Tulane campus this weekend. The three - cornerback Phillip Davis from Peachtree Ridge High School in Suwanee, Ga., middle linebacker Earl Patin from Southern Lab School in Baton Rouge, La., and outside linebacker Devin Holland from Istrouma High School in Baton Rouge.

Davis had long been verbally committed to Navy, but recently visited Furman and and news reports indicate that he committed to the Paladins during his visit.

Although he played free safety in high school, the ultra-quick Davis projects as a cornerback at the collegiate level, and could factor in as a kick and punt returner.

At Scout.com's Atlanta Combine last spring, Davis recorded times of combine times of 4.49 for the 40-yard dash, and 7.34 in the 3-cone test.

Davis was named by Atlanta area coaches to the Region 7-AAAAA All-Region football second team and the Gwinnett All-County team after recording 39 tackles, 5 interceptions, and 9 receptions for 87 yards and a touchdown during his senior season in which he was the leader and key playmaker in the Peachtree Ridge secondary and helped carry the team to the 5A state championship in December.

The state championship came in what was Peachtree Ridge's fourth season of varsity football.

Holland, 6-foot, 205-pounds, previously visited Southern and McNeese State, and was named to the 4-A All-State team and the Defensive Co-MVP of District 6-4A, after making 95 tackles his senior season.

Patin, 6-2, 225-pounds, previously visited Nebraska, and is scheduled to visit Alabama next weekend. Patin, one of four highly regarded prospects at Southern Lab, was named first team 1-A All-State after both his junior and seni or seasons.

One of Patin's teammates, defensive end Frank Alexander, visited Tulane last weekend. All four Southern Lab prospects - Patin, Alexander, strong safety Chad Jones, and offensive guard Ronald Leary - are expected to visit Alabama next weekend.
