Where do the Rebels stand with Luther Davis?

Luther Davis (DE, West Monroe, LA) - One of the hottest recruits throughout the country has picked up a couple new offers.

"I got offered by Ohio State last week. My coach said Louisville wanted to offer me too. California and West Virginia are doing the same," stated Luther Davis.

Scholarship offers have been rolling in.

"I have offers now from USC, LSU, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Georgia, well basically every SEC school has offered me except Kentucky and Vandy. California, UCLA, all three Florida schools (FSU, Florida, and Miami), Wisconsin, Ohio State, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Kansas. All of the Big 12 schools have offered me. Clemson and Michigan came in about a month ago and offered. I was real surprised on that one. I did not know Michgian was looking my way. I think Michigan offered Joe McKnight too. I think that is about it."

Has Luther attended any camps this summer?

"I messed up my knee. I went to look at Alabama. It was pretty nice down there. I am going to Auburn on Saturday. Next week, I am going to LSU, and the last week in July I am going to USC."

How did Davis' Alabama trip go?

"It was nice. Coach Harbortson is recruiting me. He showed me around the campus. He told me how their defense is going to be, but as far as the area, Tuscaloosa there is not much to do. When I got back from my trip, I honestly did not see myself playing there, but you never know what is going to happen."

Which colleges are showing Luther the most attention?

"Right now, it is a toss up between LSU, Florida, and USC. I hear from one of their coaches every single day. They never miss a day. It is crazy, when we first started talking, I thought there was no way USC would want me. But as soon as you put up my highlight film, they came down to see me practice. They have been contacting me every since."

Luther continues to hold a very tight relationship with one of his teammates?

"My and Terry Carter (CB) are like brothers. There is no doubt we want to go to school together. We talk about it every day."

And which colleges are after Terry?

"Terry ran the fastest 40 time at the LSU camp. He ran a 4.41 forty. Right now, he has offers from LSU, Florida, Ole Miss and Arkansas."

There is also another player Luther is keeping close tabs with.

"Ahmad Paige is my boy. He just got back from FSU. He loves it there. He has not committed to them, but they are definitely the team to beat."

Which college is now at the top of Luther's list?

"It really is a toss up. My list changes every week. Most of it has to do with who is showing me the most interest, to be honest. My top schools keep changing by the week. I do not see how I am going to have my mind up by August 19th. Me and Ahmad Paige are suppose to announce our decision on ESPN on that day. But I am thinking about holding off until the end of my season and taking all of my visits. If I feel real strong about a school by August 19th, I will go ahead and make a decision, but I just do not see that happening."

Without naming a leader, Davis did name his top schools.

"My favorites right now are Florida, LSU, USC, Ohio State, and probably Tennessee and Florida State."

The Rebels were once among the leaders; what happened?

"They have actually slacked off. I have not heard from Ole Miss since the weekend after their camp. I told them I could not come because I had my knee scoped, and they have not contacted me since. I do not know if they took it personally or what, but they just pretty much shut it down after that. I was kind of disappointed they did because I really liked them."
