Florida Wideout Sets Visit With NC State

Darrell Davis proved to be one of Florida's top pass catchers in 2005. NC State has reportedly offered and we've got the latest on his top schools and a visit with the Wolfpack.

Wide receiver Darrell Davis has narrowed his list to four schools, three of whom have offered.

NC State, Central Florida and South Florida have each extended scholarship offers to the prospect from Pasco High School in Dade City, FL. He's still hoping for an offer from Florida.

"Those four are the only schools I'm considering," said the 6-5, 195-pound senior. "They're all even at this point. I've got official visits coming up to each of them in the next couple of months so I'll know a lot more after that."

Davis plans on visiting NC State on Dec. 10, Central Florida on Jan. 6, Florida on Jan. 20 and South Florida on Jan. 27. What does he like about the Pack?

"I have a really good relationship with Coach Dixon. He's recruiting me and he would be my position coach if I go there. That's definitely going to be one of the most important things I consider when I make my decision. The head coach and all the other coaches are important, but it's the position coach who you're going to spend most of your time with. He's going to be the one developing you on a one-on-one level. I really like Coach Dixon."

While most schools are recruiting him as a wide receiver, there's an outside possibility that he could move to the defensive side of the ball in college.

"I think I'll be a receiver, but I'm physical enough to play defense. I've played some linebacker here. I take pride in being a very good blocker downfield, and that opens things up for my teammates in the open field. I'm also pretty good at getting yards after the catch."

While he says the four schools he's listing are even, there's one slight catch.

"If Florida offers me it might tip the scale in their favor a little bit," he said. "They're in-state, an SEC school and they have a great program. I'd like to wait until after all my visits to make a decision, but if they offer they might have an edge."
