Davis was a two year starter for the South Gwinnett Comets. He played a little at both cornerback and safety and isn't sure yet which he'll play in Tim Duffie's secondary unit.
"It was actually Coach Knorr who offered me," Davis said. "He told me they liked me as a defensive athlete and didn't specify cornerback or safety. He said they liked my physicality, my versatility to be quick enough to pick up a slot receiver or blitz off the edge, and my toughness.
"I like Coach Duffie very much. He's a great coach who'll definitely help me improve. I think we're going to learn a lot from one another in the next four years."
During the recruiting process, Davis picked up offers from Air Force, Colorado State, Georgia State, Navy, and Troy as well as several FCS schools. He committed to Georgia State just a week ago, but it was the official visit to Wake Forest that changed his mind.
"I went down on Friday just to look at the school and see what it has to offer," he explained. "I really enjoyed it there. My high points were looking around downtown and going to the stadium. I had a good time with my host for the weekend, Ryan Janvion. He's a cool guy who plays very similar to myself, hard-nosed, all-out. I played with Jonathan Williams in middle school. It was nice to see the team camaraderie and chemistry they have as a group."
At South Gwinnett, Davis played against some of the top competition in the nation in Georgia Class AAAAAA Region 8 which includes area powerhouse Grayson. The Comets went 9-3 on the season bowing out in the second round to Norcross. They beat Milton in the first round featuring Josh Harris and Cory Helms, both committed to Wake Forest.
Davis said as many as 12 Comets will be signing their letter of intent on Wednesday. They'll begin at 2:30 P.M. ET in the school's theater.
