Four-star Davis Still Planning Rutgers Visit?

Rutgers went to Jefferson High (Tampa, Fla.) last season to get linebacker Fred Overstreet, and are also hitting the school hard for four-star receiver Andre Davis. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound Davis told last month he would make an official visit to Rutgers, and now he updates the situation and discusses whether that plan was altered.

Jefferson High (Tampa, Fla.) four-star receiver Andre Davis is still organizing and deciding which schools he will officially visit, and Rutgers remains on his list of destinations.

During the summer the 6-foot-2, 180-pound Davis named a top seven, which included Rutgers, South Florida, Florida State, Miami, West Virginia, Texas Tech and Cincinnati.

"Add Kansas in there, too," Davis said. "They've been recruiting me hard lately."

Each of the schools offered Davis, but he recently told Miami isn't recruiting him very hard lately.

When it comes to make visits, just like Davis told last month, the Scarlet Knights are in line to get one.

"I plan on going up there," Davis said. "We haven't set a date, but I think it's going to be after the season. It will be sometime in December or January. I definitely plan on getting up there."

Rutgers is a familiar name at Jefferson High these days. Scarlet Knights freshman linebacker Fred Overstreet played at Jefferson, and Rutgers is also recruiting Jefferson high linebacker Ramik Wilson.

Whether Davis makes any in-season official visits still needs to be decided, but right now he is concentrating on the upcoming season, which begins Friday against Chamberlain High (Tampa).

"I'm ready for the season," Davis said. "We worked out hard and everyone is ready. The goal is to win a state title."

The Dragons lost in the Class 3A state semifinals last season, and Davis finished with 72 catches for 1,296 yards and 19 touchdowns.
