Stephenson RB Mike Davis, who was offered by UGA within hours after de-committing from Florida last week, will make an unofficial visit with the Bulldogs on Thursday.
Davis will leave for an official visit to Florida State on Friday, and also has recruiting trips planned for Clemson and South Carolina in January.
The 5-foot-9, 200-pounder said he is also considering Tennessee and Miami, among others.
Davis has said the commitment of Keith Marshall, who is ranked as the No. 1 RB in the nation by Scout.com, will not affect his consideration of the Bulldogs.
UGA hopes to sign at least running backs this year, with Todd Gurley of Tarboro, N.C., and Davis as the primary targets. What’s the latest with Gurley? It looks like North Carolina is gaining some ground. Here’s an update from FayObserver.com’s Sammy Batten:
… Todd Gurley, who was ranked No. 1 in The Fayetteville Observer’s preseason list of the state’s top 50 college prospects, is still keeping most of his thoughts private. “Everybody is the same. Everybody is recruiting me hard,” he said Wednesday after running down his list of finalists – Clemson, Georgia, N.C. State and North Carolina. Gurley has already taken officials visits to the first three and said he’s going to schedule a fourth and final trip to UNC in January before announcing a decision.
“I really haven’t been thinking that much about recruiting lately because we were in the state playoffs, and I came straight from that to the Shrine Bowl [all-star game],” Gurley said. “Of course, once I got here everybody wanted to talk to me about it, especially my (Shrine Bowl) teammates. The Clemson guys, the N.C. State guys, the Carolina guys . they’re all trying to convince me to come with them.”
