Louisville's next commit?

Louisville already has a commitment from three-star Tyrone (GA) Sandy Creek defensive end Lacy Coleman. Now, the Cardinals appear on the verge of landing one of Coleman's speedy high school teammates.

Jarrett Davis, a 5-foot-11, 155-pound wide receiver from Tyrone, Ga., is about to make a college decision.

"It'll be really soon," Davis told InsideTheVille.com.

Davis is expected to follow teammate Lacy Coleman to Louisville. Davis made an unofficial visit to Louisville earlier this summer with another teammate, running back Rajion Neal, and liked what he saw from the Cardinals. Louisville has also offered Neal and are one of the favorites to land his commitment.

"I visited Louisville last month and I have seen the campus," Davis said. "I went up there for an unofficial visit to look at the campus and the facilities and meet some of the coaches. I really loved it and that's what's made me love Louisville so much. That's why they're number one on my list because they treated me with the most respect and showed a lot of love. I feel it would be a good fit for me."

Ken Delgado has been recruiting Davis. He says Coleman's decision to play for Louisville is one of the reasons he wants to commit to the Cardinals.

"It does play a factor that he's (Coleman) going there," Davis said. "I'd like to play with one of my high school teammates in college. I know Rajion wants to go to Louisville with me as well but I don't think he's ready to make his decision yet. He needs a little bit more time."

Davis keeps in touch with Louisville assistant Jeff Lewis, who coaches wide receivers. "They said they want me and I'd have a good chance to play if I came there," Davis said. "We met the head coach on our visit and I feel like they really want me to come up there and play for their team."

Davis caught 42 passes for 810 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior. He projects as a down-field threat because of his 4.3 forty speed and averaged 19.3 yards per catch last season. He also rushed for a touchdown. Davis also holds offers from Ohio, Furman, Tulane, Kent State, and Georgia Southern.

"I've got pretty good hands, run good routes and I think I can do anything a wide receiver needs to do," Davis said. "I ran a 4.3 electronic, laser-timed at Middle Tennessee. I also run track and run a 10.94 (100 meter). I think they (Louisville) want to put me on the outside."
