Davis firms up plans for visit to Montlake

Later this month, the University of Washington will play host to some of the top football prospects on their radar and likely the top running back on the West Coast, Lincoln (Stockton, Ca.) RB Justin Davis, will be among those getting a closer look at what the Husky football has to offer...

"I'm pretty excited. We just got our tickets for Seattle so I will be up there for their spring game on April 28th," Davis told Dawgman.com. "Coach (Tosh) Lupoi and coach (Joel) Thomas have both been talking to me about things and all of the great players they are going to have on campus that weekend, so I have a feeling it's going to be a great trip."

In addition to his unofficial visit to Montlake, Davis said he also plans to visit California, Stanford, UCLA, USC and Oregon State.

"I've started to think about narrowing things down, but I don't have a top five yet really," Davis noted. "I mean, the schools I'm visiting this spring, those are all of the ones you could say I'm looking the hardest at, but honestly, I have an open mind about all of the schools that have offered me right now. I'll probably take all of these visits and then sorta start to come up with a top five or six or even top eight, I'm not really sure quite yet, but I should have enough information to start narrowing it down a little."

As a junior this past fall, Davis tore up the Trojans' opponents, rushing for 2,613 yards and 39 touchdowns.

That productivity, to go along with his outstanding vision, cutting-ability and speed has garnered him 20 offers from schools across the country and he said recently he knows what he will be looking for from the program he ends up signing with.

"Playing time is a consideration, but everywhere you go you have competition, so that isn't really a big thing to me," Davis said. "More than anything, I just want to find the right fit. A place with good academics, good coaches and I want to feel comfortable with the players.

"Also, it would be nice for my family to be able to see me play, but with T.V. and all of that, it's pretty easy to watch games now, so if I decided to leave the area or even the West Coast, my family could still see most if not all of my games."

Davis also noted he still plans to take all of his official visits before he'll be ready to make his decision.

We will have more from Davis after his visit to Montlake later this month and we will update things as they happen with him.
