Broughton standout Drew Davis is one of the top sleepers at the linebacker position in North Carolina's current junior class.
The 6-2, 212-pound linebacker has received a lot of attention from NC State because of his production and his proximity to the school.
Last year at Broughton, Davis tallied about 14 tackles per game, making him one of the most productive defenders in the area. He's a solid tackler and puts himself in position to make plays. He's also quite familiar with NC State, meaning the Wolfpack will want to keep the lines of communication open with him even if they aren't planning on offering him right away.
"I've met with coach (Tom) O'Brien, the head coach. I've spoken to NC State a lot," Davis said. "They first started recruiting me last spring.
"They asked for my transcript and film and everything. They said they were going to look at my film and get back to me. They told me I'll definitely be talking to them more."
All of the schools on Davis' list are recruiting him as a linebacker, not surprisingly.
Broughton has always been a school that NC State has checked out for talent. Recently Broughton senior athlete Juston Burris signed a Letter of Intent to attend State.
"I went up with Juston to visit when he went up," Davis recalled. "I saw the facilities and everything. I thought it was really nice. They definitely have top of the line facilities and a great weight room. I got invited to a game there last year and I went to that, plus I went to their camp, also."
Davis attended a junior day at Wake Forest over the weekend and said that went very well. The Demon Deacons have shown serious interest in Davis. In fact, he went so far as to say that Wake Forest and Vanderbilt have shown more interest than any of the other schools that have recruited him.
He was supposed to go to an event at Maryland but that came up at the last minute and he wasn't able to follow through with that. Davis said he will be on the lookout for other junior days and spring practices he will be able to attend.
