Since committing to Kentucky, Long County outside linebacker Jamin Davis has continued to gain interest from schools around the South. Additional schools are now showing interest and one of those schools has offered.

Long County has begun spring practice and schools are making their way there to watch Davis practice and show their interest in him. “I like how my recruitment is trending upward.”

Georgia Tech is the latest school to offer Davis. Jamin received the offer in a telephone conversation with Coach Lamar Owens. The offer brings Jamin’s total 12. “From the info I am getting from other schools and my head coach, more are on the way."

Coach Owens talked to Jamin about the school and the football program. “I want to major in mechanical engineering. He said Tech would be the perfect fit for me.” Jamin was invited to visit the campus. He has never been to Tech. “He said I would be very surprised how the campus looks as opposed to seeing it from the freeway.” Davis plans to make that visit in June. “My teammate Tariq Carpenter and I may take the trip together to compare what we like about the campus, the school, the players, and the coaches.”

All the schools recruiting Davis like him as an outside linebacker. “They like my size and feel I have the frame to put on more good weight.” Jamin is currently 6’3 ½”-206.

At the present time, Kentucky, Georgia Southern, and Central Florida are the schools showing the most interest. Florida and North Carolina State have also started to show interest. “After talking to Coach Owens, I feel that Georgia Tech will also be on that list.” While he is committed to Kentucky, Jamin is looking at his other options.

Jamin plans to make a final decision in December or January. He’ll be looking for a school where he feels at home. Jamin will also be looking to his family to get their opinion of the schools that are recruiting him. On the academic side of things, Davis will be looking for a school that has a good engineering degree. Finally, he’ll be looking for an opportunity to prove to the coaches that he can play early.
