One of the most fertile recruiting areas in the state is Gwinnett County, right here in the Panther’s backyard. Gwinnett County has already given Georgia State some good talent in the form of Sidney Haynes, Ben McLane, Nate Minor, Ben Jacoby, Scott McQueen, Harrison Clottey, Iain Vance, and Emmanuel Ogbuehi. Georgia State has continued to scour the north metro county for talent and this time they have landed the commitment of Defensive Lineman prospect Jahmai Davidson from Brookwood High School in Snellville, Ga.
At six foot four and 260 pounds Davidson already has great size and the athleticism to play anywhere along the defensive line. Panthersville.com got the opportunity to talk to Davidson about his recruitment. So what factors led him to choose Georgia State?
“Some of the things that lead me to choosing Georgia State was that it’s a great school,” said Davidson. “It’s close to home, the team members that I have already met are very cool, and I want to help build up a dynasty.”
While Davidson will certainly look to help Georgia State build a dynasty with his play on the field, he is also looking to help them off the field and on the recruiting trail.
“I have talked to two of my friends, Ty Alston and Ramirez Galbreth, about coming with me to be a Panther,” continued Davidson. “I think I won one of them over.”
It certainly hasn’t hurt Georgia State recruiting to have a man like Bill Curry on the sidelines. Davidson clearly came away from his visit to Georgia State impressed by the legendary coach.
“The best part of my visit was meeting Coach Bill Curry,” said Davidson. “He just told me he wants me on his team.”
Davidson will sign his letter of intent on signing day, Feb. 1st, after school.
