Dawgs making a run at Davis?

Georgia is on the hunt for defensive backs and Jeremy Pruitt offered one a scholarship earlier this week...

How many defensive backs does Georgia need in this class?

It will have a lot of openings next fall when camp starts, so the Dawgs could target up to half a dozen in 2015.

Javaris Davis was offered earlier this week and UGA is now a school to keep an eye on with the four-star senior.

"Georgia watched my senior film, they fell in love with it, and Coach [Jeremy] Pruitt offered me a scholarship," said Davis.

"Coach Pruitt told me I have an offer and that he wants me to visit as soon as possible."

That visit could come November 15 when Georgia hosts Auburn.

It is still unknown if the visit will be unofficial or official, but the 5-foot-10, 173 pound athlete out of Jacksonville (Fla.) Ed White wants to get back to Athens, Ga.

"I went up there in the summer and I loved it. The coaching staff was great to me when I was up there and they talked with me about football, what I could do with my degree, and things like that."

Davis is a competitor who wants a chance to play early in college and he knows he'd have that opportunity at Georgia. Pruitt talked to him about playing corner and the nickel position when he offered him, so Davis knows it is a position of need.

Now that an offer from the 6-1 Dawgs is on the table, Georgia is under strong consideration.

"Georgia is now in my top five," said Davis. "I do not have a leader, but Georgia is right there with USC, Ohio State, Florida, and North Carolina. I want to get back up there soon."

Davis is a former North Carolina commit. He has had a big week. On the same day Georgia offered, Miami did as well. Then Oregon offered two days later.

Scout ranks Davis as the No. 36 cornerback in the country.
