4-star DB set to visit Miami

The Hurricanes are trying to remain active in terms of recruiting the greater Jacksonville area and one of the top prospects in the city is scheduled to visit here next weekend. Read on to learn more and to see what Miami's chances are.

Javaris Davis tells Scout.com's Corey Bender that he will be taking an official visit to Miami next weekend.

At 5-foot-9 and 175 pounds, Davis is a two-way player at Ed White High in Jacksonville. He plays both wide receiver and cornerback but is being recruited by most schools, including Miami, to play on defense.

While he lacks ideal size for a major college cornerback prospect, he runs extremely well, he's very fluid and athletic, and has tremendous leaping ability. He plays bigger than his size would indicate. His game is somewhat similar to that of Corn Elder.

Davis made an early commitment to North Carolina and even made an official visit to the school back in October. However after Miami and some other major programs gave him scholarship offers he backed off that early pledge and is now open.

With scholarships in hand from schools like Wisconsin, USC, Ohio State, Michigan, Florida, Georgia, and Clemson, Davis is being recruited like one of the state's top cornerback prospects.

Since he's never been to Miami before it's tough to tell what Miami's chances are going into the visit but this will be his first visit since de-committing from North Carolina so the Canes appear to be somewhere near the top of his list.

Miami landed a commitment from three-star cornerback Michael Jackson out of Alabama recently and now they seem eager to land a second. Stay on CanesTime.com for more coverage of Davis and other prospects in the very near future.
