4-star CB Davis Recaps Notre Dame Visit

Four-star cornerback Antwuan Davis of Bastrop (Texas) High made his first trip to Notre Dame this weekend, and he spoke about it with IrishEyes.com.

Four-star cornerback Antwuan Davis of Bastrop (Texas) High wasn't sure what to expect during his weekend visit to Notre Dame, but he left knowing the Irish are a realistic option.

The 6-foot, 170-pound Davis toured the campus, met with the coaching staff and spent time with the players during his trip.

"I liked it a lot," Davis said. "I got to meet with the coaching staff, and that was really fun. They fed me a lot, and I enjoyed that. My coaches enjoyed it a lot. They had good time. I also had a good time being able to talk to the players and letting me know what college is all about. It was a pretty fun trip."

Davis, who holds offers from the likes of Texas, LSU, Alabama, Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Michigan, said Notre Dame's coaching staff impressed upon him the need to bring in several cornerbacks in the class, and how early playing time was available.

"They said I would be able to play whatever corner I wanted to, either boundary or the field," Davis said. "They say I would be able to come in and have a real good chance of starting. They said they need some help at the corner position."

That could also have an impact on Davis' decision.

"That does influence me," he said. "Wherever I go, I would like to play early, or get a lot of early reps so I can see how the game is as a freshman."

There were a few things that stood out to Davis.

"It's probably the staff and the players," he said. "All the staff and the players are really committed, and they're a great group of guys."

Davis said he doesn't have any more trips planned but others will take place. He is also contemplating when he will make a decision.

"Before next season, and maybe even after the track season (in the spring)," said Davis, who said distance could be a factor. "If my parents can make the games, I should be fine. I will figure out leaders pretty soon."

However, the trip raised Notre Dame's profile in Davis' recruitment.

"I like them a lot," he said. "I enjoyed everything I did up there. I had a really good time. Any school I go to, that's how I hope to feel."
