Does CB Davis Still Have Irish No. 1?

Last month Amos P. Godby High (Tallahassee, Fla.) cornerback T.J. Davis had Notre Dame atop his list. He spoke to this morning about his recruitment, and revealed whether the Irish are still leading. His official visit date to South Bend, Ind., is set, and Davis also named three other schools he is working with to set up official visits.

Notre Dame's biggest recruiting weekend of the season is centered around USC visiting South Bend, Ind., on Oct. 22, and Florida cornerback T.J. Davis doesn't plan on missing it.

Davis, a standout at Amos P. Godby High in Tallahassee, Fla., will make his official visit that weekend, and he continues to hold the Irish in high regard.

"Notre Dame and Florida State are even right now," he said. "I'm taking an official visit to the USC game. I'm definitely excited about it, and I asked (Irish assistant) coach (Tim) Hinton when would be a good time to come up, and he said that would be a great game. That's why I'm setting it up."

Davis is also looking hard at Ohio State, Florida, Auburn, Alabama and TCU, and he is eyeing official visits to other schools.

"I'm working on ones with Ohio State, Florida State and TCU right now," said Davis, who explained his interest in BCS newcomer TCU. "Over the last couple of years they've proven they're a good program, and I like their swag."

Last month Davis listed Notre Dame as his No. 1 school, and he said nothing changed in his view of the Irish. However, he added that Florida State has really impressed him lately.

"It's coaches and the way they do things around there," Davis said. "There's a lot of energy around there. I can tell the difference from when I used to visit (before Jimbo Fisher took over)."

Davis is yet to make a visit to the Notre Dame campus, but his relationship with Hinton is giving him a positive vibe.

"Coach Hinton is a great guy," he said. "I joke around with him all the time. He's more like a brother. He seems like a great coach, and we talk time to time over Facebook, and with calls."

Davis also discussed why Notre Dame is tied with Florida State atop his list.

"Because of the history of the school," he said, "and definitely the chance to compete for a national championship, along with the academics."

As a junior, Davis made 25 tackles and had two interceptions. He does not play on making a decision until after his senior season. Top Stories
