No. 2 OLB Ben Davis 'excited' about his official visit to Georgia this weekend

Georgia will host No. 2-ranked outside linebacker Ben Davis for an official visit this weekend. Do the Dawgs have a shot with this Alabama legacy? Get the latest here...

Scout's No. 2 outside linebacker Ben Davis is ready for official visit No. 1 this weekend.

It goes to the University of Georgia.

Davis is ready to return to Athens (Ga.).

"I am very excited to see Georgia this weekend," said Davis.  "Me and my mom are going and I am really excited.

"I like their coaching staff and I already know a lot about their coaches.  I think [head coach] Mark Richt is a great guy and he really seems down to earth.  When I talk to him, we talk about football and how Georgia would use me at inside linebacker and as a rusher on third down."

Georgia has been on the Gordo (Ala.) campus this fall, now it is Davis's turn to return the favor.  The 6-foot-4, 235 pound five-star senior will see the Dawgs play under the lights when it hosts Missouri Saturday night.

He is ready for that.

"Of course I want to see what game-day is like at Georgia.  I want to see the atmosphere there.

"Academics is important too.  I want to see the academic side of things at Georgia because I want to major in Business Management, so I want to see what that is like.

"Mostly though, I want to see how the UGA coaches react to their players.  I want to see how their relationships are.  That is important."

The only other official visit Davis has scheduled is to LSU on November 14.  Alabama, Auburn, and Florida State will get the final three official visits.

Many feel he is a strong Crimson Tide-lean right now due to his connection to Tuscalossa (Ala.).  His father (Wayne) played linebacker there, but according to Davis, no school has an edge.

"This (Geogia visit) is my first step of making my decision and I do not know where I am going yet," said Davis.  "The people that think they know where I am going are wrong.

"I am just excited about my visit to Georgia right now."

Davis is the No. 14 overall prospect in the country.
