Cornerback Fred Davis of Jacksonville is one of the most heavily recruited prospects in the country for his position. Clemson and USC were among his early offers and most of the major schools across the country have followed suit. He visited USC in September and Clemson for a junior day January 26th. As of now, the Tigers are more involved than the Gamecocks and he plans a return trip for their spring game April 6th.
“They are just like a family environment,” Davis said of Clemson. “Two defensive backs left and possibly one is going to leave next year. Basically, I can fit in their scheme real well. Coach Venables is great at what he does and I think he can help me. The scheme of the defense fits me. They run a really complete package.”
Clemson offered Davis in January and he later visited for a closer look.
“Everything. A good family environment. I saw the players and coaches and everything was good,” Davis said.
Davis said he’s also visited Miami and he wants to see Auburn and Ohio State. But he’s feeling a decision could be on the horizon.
“It may be soon, it may be soon,” Davis said of a decision.
And that brings into question if Davis is thinking of doing something with Clemson at the spring game, though he said he has not favorites right now
“You know, it’s very possible. We’ll have to see.”
Last season Davis said he had 3 interceptions with 12 pass break ups and over 60 tackles.
