RECRUITING: Distance a factor for Georgia athlete?

Georgia athlete Tristan Davis talks recruiting and about his interest in Oklahoma


Tristan is a fantastic overall athlete that is being recruited on both sides of the ball. College coaches want him both as a running back and as a cornerback. Davis heads into his senior year as a three year starter as a quarterback, tailback, cornerback, safety, punter, kick-off, long snapper on field goals, punt returner and kick returner.

"I really never leave the field, but I hope to settle down to cornerback and tailback this year," said Davis."Those are the two positions that I like the best. Most colleges want me to play as an athlete, because most of them don't want me to play just one position. I don't care on which side of the ball I play on and I would like to go both ways in college."

Davis finished last season with 1,100 yards rushing and scored 10 touchdowns on offense. On defense Davis finished with 76 tackles and seven interceptions. Davis can bench 335 pounds, squats 460 and he has a 36-inch vertical jump.

Davis participated in the NIKE camp at the Auburn University, summer camps at Middle Tennessee and Florida, and a camp that was given by the Atlanta Falcons.

"I did well at all the camps, but I feel I did the best at the University of Florida camp," said Davis. "I think I performed to the best of my abilities at that camp."

Davis has been offered by 11 schools at this point, but he has already narrowed down his choices.

"I like Florida, Virginia, Tennessee, Maryland and Florida State as my top five," said Davis. "Virginia and Maryland have offered me out of that group. I also like Auburn and I also hear from Oklahoma. To be honest, I think Oklahoma is a little to far away from home for me. However, if they take more of an interest I would consider them because OU is one of the very best programs in the country."
