Indy LB Hugh Davis visiting Illini

2018 Indianapolis linebacker Hugh Davis will visit Illinois for Saturday's game against North Carolina


Indianapolis Cathedral linebacker Hugh Davis will visit Illinois on Saturday to watch Illinois play North Carolina, he confirmed to Illini Inquirer. This will mark his third visit to Illinois.

"I'm looking forward to see if Illinois can compete with (the Tar Heels)," Davis said.

Davis currently sports offers from Indiana and Central Michigan. He's also receiving interest from Illinois, Louisville, Purdue, Iowa and Michigan State.

http://www.scout.com/college/illinois/story/1702972-illini-football-recr... Illinois has shown a lot of interest and got an up-close look at him when Davis attended an Illini satellite camp in Chicago in early June.

"They just want to see my tape from this year cause they know I wasn't an every down guy as a sophomore," Davis said.

The new Illinois staff wants a bigger presence in Indianapolis and Davis is one of the better juniors in the area.

"The season is going great," Davis said. "We are 3-0 and I'm playing great."
