Halfway Home

An Alabama defender has West Virginia atop his list, but still has a pair of visits to go before making his decision.

Carver High School's Anthony Davis is a quarterback and defensive back in high school, but like many prep seniors, is slated for a different position in college. WVU, which hosted the rugged Davis on a visit this past weekend, sees him as a spur in its 3-3-5 defense.

"I had a nice visit – it was a good trip overall," said Davis as he prepared for a basketball game. "The coaches were all nice, and told me everything about the program. I got along with them well. They showed us a good time, and I really liked being around them."

Davis, who lists "attacking the ball" as his best quality on defense," has completed visits to Alabama and WVU, but still has a pair of visits left to complete before making his decision. He is slated to visit UAB on Jan. 20 and Tennessee on Jan. 27, then will sit down to make his choice.

Although he still has all four schools under serious consideration, he does admit that one school might have an edge.

"West Virginia is the first school I consider," said Davis, who is somewhat reticent in his comments. "I am still looking at all four schools, though."

The aggressive defender earned All-Metro honors as a senior, racking up 97 tackles and snaring five interceptions.
