"I've been planning this trip for a long time," Davis told InsideTheVille.com. "The coaches have kept in contact with me through letters and Facebook and they want to get me on campus and give me a tour of the facilities. It's close and Louisville is one of the schools that is recruiting me the hardest. So I want to get down there for the visit."
Louisville is recruiting Davis, 6-foot-4, 280-pounds, as an offensive guard prospect. The Cardinals, who plan to sign five or six offensive lineman this year, already have four commitments, meaning Davis could be under a time-crunch if he wants to play for Charlie Strong's program.
"I'm thinking about making a decision after his first two games this year," Davis said. "I might take some official visits in the fall, but it depends on whether or not I make a decision."
Davis has more than a dozen offers and listed Louisville, Illinois, Cincinnati, Indiana and N.C. State as the favorites in his recruitment. Here's what he said he likes about each school on his short list:
Louisville: "It's close and I have some family that went there back in the day. I have a good relationship with Coach Watson, so that's why they're in my Top 5."
Cincinnati: "I have a great relationship with Coach Toms?? So I want to take a visit there, it's close. I had family go there also. They're recruiting me pretty hard and want me to be part of the team."
Illinois: "I know some people that go there and they're recruiting me pretty hard."
Indiana: "I visited Indiana for spring practice and I connected with the staff and players real well, and that boosted them into my Top 5."
N.C. State: "I don't know much about NC State, but I want to take a visit. The coach that is recruiting me went to my rival school, Indian Hills."
So what is Davis looking for in a college?
"The academics and how I interact and connect with the coaches are the big things," Davis said.
