Davis focused on season

Wake Forest and West Virginia are the schools Delray Beach (Fla.) American Heritage School athlete Marcus Davis talks to.

"With Wake it's been the same since I met those guys in the spring time," Davis said. "I've actually been up to Wake twice, so I'm pretty comfortable with the environment and the campus and the coaches."

"And West Virginia I've only been talking to Coach [Robert] Gillespie. I still haven't been up there yet."

He plans to make the trip up to Morgantown following the end of his senior season. Davis, who has led American Heritage to a 10-0 record as a dual-threat quarterback, said he has been focused on his season.

Tim Duffie and Ray McCartney are recruiting Davis as a cornerback for the Demon Deacons.

"I hear talk to both of those guys weekly [about] how I could fit in, what type of player I am," Davis said. "They're just telling me to make my decision when I feel the most comfortable. They don't want to rush me into anything."

The 5-foot-11 and 170-pound Davis added he will make his decision after he visits West Virginia.

He wants to see what kind of vibes he gets from the Mountaineer coaches and the WVU atmosphere.

"They [West Virginia coaches] just told me I could come in and contribute early if I come in and work hard," Davis said. "They think I can make plays, so they want me to come in and do that."

Davis, who is rated as a three-star recruit and the nation's No. 62 athlete, said he is looking for a school he feels comfortable at, where he can get his education and play football.

Cincinnati is still showing interest in Davis; however, the feelings are not reciprocated from the Sunshine State prospect.
