NC State and Georgia Tech are talking to Rion Davis on a weekly basis and the S.C. safety has a lot to say about both schools.
Mike Sewak and Des Kitchings are the two men from those schools that are talking to Davis for the most part and so far they have done a good job of making their cases. Davis visited Georgia Tech for one of their practices this spring and Sewak was able to talk to him while he was there.
"That was the only time I had been up there. That was my first time at Georgia Tech. I liked the way the practice was set up. They were asking me about my position and they were saying they were glad to have me there. They told me they wanted me to come back too," Davis said.
Davis said he probably will go back to Georgia Tech at some undetermined point in the future. He also told the coaching staff in Atlanta that he seems himself as more of a strong safety and linebacker hybrid than a pure linebacker or safety exclusively.
"They let me watch their plays and what they do is similar to what we run now in high school."
The visit helped even things out between Georgia Tech and NC State because Davis had been to Raleigh several times already. The last time he was at NC State was for a Junior Day.
"It was nice because they showed us around the campus. Coach Kitchings has been talking to me about the school and how the program is. He'll send me letters. He said they're not a school where if you come in as a freshman you have to sit out. If you're good you'll play. That was the first school to offer so I know they want me. That's big."
While it does seem that the two ACC schools are front and center in Davis' thoughts he said he won't be making a decision until the end of his senior season at Flora H.S. in Columbia (SC).
Schools might have a better idea of where to put Davis on the field at the next level after this season. He will be returning kickoffs, playing strong safety and even logging some carries at running backs. He will also be a cover man on just about every special teams play.
