What does Davis know about the Hokies' program?

"I know they have a good academic school and they play good football," Davis said. "But other than that I don't know much."

With his 6-foot-2 and 220-pound frame there is talk that Davis could line up at defensive end at the next level. In fact, that is the position Virginia Tech coaches are recruiting him to play.

Davis says that he doesn't mind playing either one but could choose one if he had to.

"I like linebacker the best," he said.

In addition to the Hokies, Davis has been hearing from Georgia Tech and Virginia.

"I just got some mail from Vanderbilt and ECU," he added.

As a junior last season, Davis posted 80 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and four sacks.
