Marcus Davis talks Wake Forest

Marcus Davis did a little bit of everything in helping American Heritage-Delray Beach win the Florida 3A state championship in 2011. The 5-foot-11, 175-pound athlete played quarterback, wide receiver, and cornerback for the Stallions. Where he'll play at the next level could very well depend on what college he chooses.


"Boston College offered me as a defensive back," said Marcus Davis. "Duke offered me as a slot receiver. I think Wake Forest offered me just as an athlete. My preference is cornerback, but it doesn't really matter right now. I'm open in talking about my future position until the time when it gets closer to decide."

Davis received the Demon Deacons offer during spring practice, so he's waiting to speak with the coaching staff to learn more about their interest.

"It was two weeks ago when Coach (Doug) Socha told me I had the [Wake Forest] offer," Davis stated. "They've been so busy with practice leading up to the spring game that's it's been about getting ahold of them at the right time. I did speak with Coach Mac on Facebook to give him my home address for letters."

While Davis did a lot of handing off to All-State running back Greg Bryant, he threw for a respectable 823 yards and 10 touchdowns, completing 56-percent of his passes. He also had 291 rushing and 136 passing yards and five touchdowns.

"I started at quarterback, but they liked to move me out at wide receiver to get me the ball in space," explained Davis. "I would play defense in the big games. I had four interceptions on the season. My two biggest games were against Glades Central and Madison County in the state championship game."

Davis has made unofficial visits to FIU and Duke for their spring game. He says he hopes to make a trip to Winston-Salem in the summertime.

"Academics are the main thing I'm looking at," said Davis. "I'm willing to play in any system because I think I learn and adapt quickly no matter what they run. I'm going to keep an open mind right now. In the end I'll probably stick to where I feel the most comfortable."

Davis was named All-District for the second straight year as a junior as well as All-Palm Beach County. His cousin is Illinois wide receiver, Darius Millines, who also attended American Hertiage.

Davis played at Boynton Beach High School as a freshman before transferring to American Heritage, a private preparatory school that features a separate second campus in Plantation, Fla.
