Harrison Davis Watches Game On The Flats

Walton High School offensive lineman Harrison Davis was among the many 2012 recruits in Atlanta for the ACC matchup between Georgia Tech and Miami. Harrison, son of Georgia Tech legend John Davis, knows Georgia Tech very well so he was able to sit back and just enjoy his time in Atlanta.

The trip to the Miami game was one of many times that Harrison Davis has been on the Georgia Tech campus. "It was a great visit and I had a chance to just enjoy my time there and not feel rushed or anything," said Harrison. "I liked walking down Yellow Jacket Alley a lot and enjoyed talking with other recruits and players."

Harrison spent some time with offensive line coach Todd Spencer on his visit. "We mainly talked about my high school season which sadly came to an end with a loss to Norcross." Coach Spencer was glad that Davis was able to make it to the game. "He said he was looking forward to me coming back and hoping to have me at Georgia Tech for the 2012 class." Harrison didn't get a chance to talk with offensive line coach Mike Sewak but hopes to do so the next time he visits Tech.

Georgia Tech continues to look good in Harrison's eyes, but he knows signing day is a long way off. "It would be great to go to Georgia Tech and uphold the expectations and reputation my dad built there for the Davis family," said Davis. "I like Georgia Tech a lot but there is a long way to go in the recruiting process."

Davis continues to hear from four main schools this early in the process. "Georgia Tech, Auburn, South Carolina, and Minnesota are the main one I'm hearing from." Harrison has not heard from Auburn since they played Tennessee-Chattanooga and South Carolina since they played Alabama. "Middle Tennessee sent me some questionnaires to look at and I guess gauge my interest in them."

The visit to Georgia Tech will be the last one of the season for Davis. "I don't plan on anymore visits at this time." Harrison will take it easy for two or three weeks and then his dad will get him started on off-season workouts. "He has some things that he did when he was playing and some things that he's come up with on his own." Harrison's goal is to get bigger, stronger, and faster. "We will work hard to do that so my senior year will be a good one."

The next visits for Harrison may come in January when the schools begin holding their junior days. "I haven't heard anything personally but my coach at Walton has set up a team meeting and he says he'll be going over that at the meeting." Harrison and his dad will have some schools that they hope to visit as well.

Davis will get to play in one more game this season with a few of his teammates. "I've been invited to play in the Rising Senior All-Star Game on January 6th. "My best friends Zach and Daron Blaylock will also be playing in the game." The three of them are looking forward to playing in the game.

Harrison likes being the son of a former college and pro football player. "It is great because you have a coach at school and a coach at home and my dad is good at striking a balance between being a dad and a coach." His dad was there to put things in perspective following the loss to Norcross. "He knows really well how to handle both aspects and I'm thankful for him everyday." Harrison knows that when his dad pushes him hard he is doing it to make him a better player and person.
