OL Terrance Davis (6-4 305) of Hyattsville, MD wants to play against the best. With that in mind, he lists academics, atmosphere and big-time football as the key factors to making a decision.
“Academics are really important to me,” Davis said. “I want to go somewhere that I fit in and just be one of the guys. I don’t want to stick out. I also want to play against the best competition. That’s important to me.”
One conference he named was the SEC. After a visit to USC over the summer, a future visit is likely.
“I’ll definitely go back to South Carolina,” he said. “I visited in July so I didn’t get to talk to the coaches. I thought their campus was beautiful and the facilities are great. That’s big-time football.”
His offers include USC, Alabama, Florida State, Maryland, Georgia, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Penn State and Tennessee. He visited Alabama and Florida State this summer and had high praise for both.
“I loved the campuses and the coaching staffs,” Davis said. “Coach (Nick) Saban said he thought I could play there but told me just to focus on my junior season right now. I love what coach (Jimbo) Fisher is doing at Florida State. They like me a lot and it’s a school that I’m interested in.”
Playing at home is another strong possibility for Davis who is planning a visit to Maryland soon. “I’ll be there for the Ohio State game,” he said. “My cousin committed today (Wednesday) and it’s a place where my family could see me play every game since it’s close to home.”
Davis said he would like to commit sometime next summer. He does not have any favorites.
