Davis breaks down top two

Wake Forest and West Virginia are still at the top of Delray Beach (Fla.) American Heritage School athlete Marcus Davis' recruitment.

"The relationship I built with those guys at Wake, the opportunity they've given from the education standpoint, and I really like the area around it," Davis said. "And with West Virginia I haven't had a chance to get up. Just again the relationship I've built with the [WVU] coaches and like the opportunity I have to go up and play."

He arrived in Winston-Salem Saturday, Sept. 8 for his official visit to Wake Forest, and saw the Demon Deacons defeat North Carolina 28-27 before returning home Sunday, Sept. 9.

"It was a great time," Davis said. "I enjoyed being up there [at Wake]. The game was a great game, and being around the coaches."

Wake Forest freshman quarterback Tyler Cameron was Davis' host during his official visit.

"I think I played on a seven-on-seven team with him, so I had a relationship with him already," Davis said. "I played against him as well. It was a nice time [during the visit]."

Davis wants to see if the environment at West Virginia is somewhere he could be for the next four years. He is looking forward to spending time with the coaches, and experiencing what the atmosphere there is like.

He and his coach are working to schedule an official visit to West Virginia. Davis added the trip to Morgantown will be before the season ends.

"As soon as I come back from the West Virginia visit I'll be sure to be ready to make a decision," Davis said.

In three games Davis, who is rated as a three-star recruit and the nation's No. 62 athlete by Rivals.com, has amassed more than 600 yards of total offense and scored seven touchdowns as a dual-threat quarterback for American Heritage School.

Tim Duffie and Ray McCartney are recruiting Davis to play cornerback for the Demon Deacons.

"He [Duffie] just told me they like the way I play, and he just told me they like the way I play and how I move around," Davis said.

"He's a [McCartney] nice guy. He's the same person from when I first met him back early in the spring. He just told me I look like the pipeline guy with Palm Beach County. And when I got up I got a chance to see all of the players and everything and what he was talking about. He's just been the same person and loyal to his word."

Davis added he feels a good connection with Duffie.
