AD on Rutgers ...

One of the many prospects that witnessed the Scarlet Knight's victory this past Thursday evening was one of the more imposing OLs in the nation and the top overall prospect in the Garden State according to SOR. What did Davis think about his experience at Rutgers? SOR has the latest.

You could not count the number of prospects on hand this past Thursday at Rutgers Stadium. There were committed players, uncommitted players, Juniors - everybody in the state was there it seemed. One of those uncommitted prospects was's #2 OL, Anthony Davis. Davis, who came to the game with his friend and Piscataway HS teammate, Tony Logan, took in yet another game at Rutgers Stadium, one of many this year.

"It was crazy. The atmosphere was just crazy. Everybody had a lot of energy, it was real nice to see," stated Anthony Davis.

What were Davis' thoughts about Rutgers' comeback after falling behind early?

"They really surprised a lot of people. Everybody was saying that the Louisville OL was so much bigger and would control the smaller Rutgers defensive line, but Rutgers showed a lot of heart," continued Davis.

What of the resurgence of Rutgers Football and the impact on the local and state level?

"That's big [Rutgers' success] because it's close to home. Rutgers is much closer and my family could come see me." However, Davis adds, distance will not be a factor when decision time does loom.

Davis lists a top two consisting of Rutgers and Ohio State and states that both are neck and neck.

The advantage of Ohio State is in part due to his teammate and friend, Malcolm Jenkins (OSU's starting CB). "Malcolm Jenkins is on the team, he's their starting corner. He just tells me how their program helps you grow as a person."

Davis had previously stated that he plans on announcing his final decision at the 2007 U.S. Army All-American game later this winter. Davis states that his intentions have not changed.

This upcoming weekend Davis will be heading out to Ohio State to take in a Big 10 game of significant importance to both conference and national play: Ohio State vs Michigan.
