Deacs High On Davis' List

DULUTH, GA – Peachtree Ridge (GA) High School running back Brandon Davis continues to pick up steam in his recruitment. A 5'10, 192-pound bruiser, Davis has earned three early offers with a host of other teams close to pulling the trigger.

"Maryland, Virginia Tech, and Vanderbilt," Brandon Davis noted when asked his offers. "A lot more schools are showing interest and might be close."

Early in the process, Davis has yet to shorten his list, though he does maintain a group of favorites. "I don't have any favorite right now," he said, "but in no particular order, I like Virginia Tech, Maryland, Wake Forest, LSU, Notre Dame, Florida, Auburn, Tennessee, and South Carolina."

Davis was invited to Wake Forest's junior day this past weekend but did not make it to Winston-Salem. He does plan to visit in the coming months and is highly interested in the Demon Deacons.

"Wake Forest, I've been texting the coach back and forth," he noted. "I didn't get up to visit them yesterday, but I'm talking to them back and forth."

"I know they've got a beautiful campus," he continued. "My brother went up there last year to visit. I know their academic program is very good and their football program is coming up. They just went to the Orange Bowl against Louisville."

In the end, one of those schools will get a very talented running back – one of Georgia's best. "I'm a very good, strong runner," Davis said when asked about his game. "I'm balanced, have great vision and can catch well. I run low to the ground and am very fast with pretty good agility. I'm just a good back trying to get better."

The Suwanee, Georgia native boasts a 3.4 GPA and is interested in a host of factors when looking for the school of his choice. "A good environment and good coaches," he noted. "When I commit to them I want them to commit to me and take care of me. Weather, I'd like hot weather and then academics and graduation rate as well. I want a good environment away from football. If I were to get injured, I'd want to be a program that wouldn't just take my scholarship. I've got to be able to trust the coaches."
