Davis Talks About Upcoming Auburn Visit

Marcus Davis, a new recruit for Auburn, is planning to take a visit to check out Gus Malzahn's Tigers.

Delray Beach, Fla.—A quarterback for American Heritage High, speedy Marcus Davis was overshadowed by running back teammate Greg Bryant in high school, but still was able to make a name for himself as a college prospect to watch as a senior.

Throwing for 827 yards and 14 touchdowns during the 2012 season while adding 826 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground, Davis has the athleticism to play another position and that is exactly why several new colleges have become very interested him late in the recruiting process.

This weekend he will visit one of those colleges after the Auburn Tigers offered him a scholarship. Being recruited as a wide receiver by Coach Dameyune Craig, Davis notes that he is looking forward to his first visit to the Plains.

"It was nice to get an offer from Auburn," Davis tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "It came sometime last week. I got in touch with those guys and everything came through this week. I want to go on this trip so I can see everything. I'm leaving on Friday.

"I just know they are in the SEC and have a new coaching staff," he adds. "They are really trying to get thing started down there."

Making the move from Florida State to Auburn to coach wide receivers, Craig's addition to the Tigers' staff has been a big thing for Davis. Saying that he has no problems playing receiver in college, he points out that he is excited to get to know more about Craig and Auburn this weekend.

"I have been talking to Coach Craig," says Davis, who notes that he is five-foot-ten, 180 pounds. "I already knew about him when he was at Florida State. He's a very good recruiter.

Also looking at Arkansas and Florida, Davis says he plans to visit the Razorbacks next weekend and is still waiting on an offer from the Gators. "Florida hasn't offered me yet, but it should be coming up in the next couple of days," he says.

Expected to choose between those three schools, Davis also has offers from Boston College, Duke, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, West Virginia and several others. He notes that he has several things in mind that will influence his college choice.

"I'm looking at the atmosphere, the coaches, and just the vibe I get when I'm there," Davis says. "I want to make my decision after the visits. I'll give myself a couple of days before I make my choice."
