Atlanta Athlete Names Top 3

<b>Chris Davis</b> is one of the top players in the state of Georgia and he has named a Top 3 list.

Marist High School standout Chris Davis has helped his team to a 9-1 record this season. He has trimmed his list of favorites to a final 3.

"Georgia Tech, Duke, and Northwestern lead right now. I have offers from all three."

Davis has been on unofficial visits to Georgia Tech and Duke so far this year. How did they go?

"I went to Georgia Tech for their game with Auburn. I liked the way they fought, and how young they really are. The coaches are really good as well. As for Duke, I went up there for their game with North Carolina State. I thought their campus was beautiful. The gothic buildings with the gargoyles and stuff was really neat."

With three institutions known for their academic prowess on his list, one must infer that Davis has no trouble making the grade.

"I'm an A's and B's guy. I have a 3.00 GPA, and a 990 SAT. I took the SAT over a year ago, and I may do it again. I'm not sure yet."

What is Chris looking forward to most about college life?

"The college football environment with the big crowds is something I like a lot. Also, just having a chance to be out on my own. Those are the main things."

What is the most important factor in his final decision?

"Basically, I just don't want to make football the 100% factor in my decision. It's more about how I fit in. If I couldn't play football, would I enjoy myself at this college? My parents are also very important. I want to be close to them."

Davis is pointing towards a January decision. He has set one official visit to Duke on January 9th, and will set his others sometime after the season is complete.
